The all new Akadema Gator Series from Akadema Baseball has a multitude of features to help players achieve greatness on the diamond. The series uses tough steerhide leather with a gator-like embossing for a unique look and great strength. Also, the fingers of the Akadema Gator are pre-curved, which makes fielding line drives and ground balls easier. Each glove in the series features an open back, allowing the hand to breathe and giving players a custom fit. The mitts in this series of Akadema gloves have their own position specific patterns to aid players in different ways. For example, the 11.5" AFL11 model has a Funnel build, in which the natural state of the mitt is open. This is due to its inverted thumb and pinky design, and allows for the best fielding surface possible. Another example is the 33" APM41 catcher's mitt, which features a Praying Mantis pattern. Stress Wedge technology absorbs shock and protects from injury, while a double-flex hinge allows the mitt to close on contact. With great models like these and much more, the Akadema Gator Series covers all the bases so you can too. Pick up one of these mitts from Baseball Bargains today!
