Akadema Rookie Series: AJP96 Youth review by JGC18
Pros: The quality of this glove superb. The leather used is just about as good as any of the $200+ gloves on the market, but in a price range that is affordable for everyone. The leather is firm, but workable to build a good deep pocket. This glove has been great for my 6 year old! Cons:Break-in time is a little longer than expected. Not really a con considering the quality of leather that is used. Break-in time should be expected.

Akadema Rookie Series: AJP96 Youth review by Stu
Pros: Seems to break in pretty easy. Cons:The leather the glove is made with is not worth the money. The pinky portion of the glove is extremely stiff and provides for an awkward close. The glove does not appear it will hold up very long.

My son is playing shortstop in 7U coach pitch. He's currently using a 10.75" Mizuno Prospect Series. I'm looking for something that will be an improvement to his game over that. I've been looking at this one and the Vinci Pro Custom Pro Junior Series: BRV1957 Youth. I can't determine any significant differences other than the I-web and T-web designs and the $5 difference. Is there much of a difference in the two? Would one be better than the other for shortstop?

The Akadema Rookie Series (AJP96 Youth) and the Mizuno Prospect Series are both great gloves and very popular. The Akadema Rookie Series and the Vinci Pro Custom Pro Junior Series will be more similar in leather material and break-in time. Both would be fine for Shortstop at their size. I-webs seem to be more popular for middle infielder's currently.
