Does this glove have a leather back or a mesh back? Look like in picture to have a leather back but have read its mesh.
The Akadema Rookie Series: AJP96 Youth features a lightweight leather back.
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.
