Akadema is proud to announce the Rookie Series Glove ARA 93 was ranked #1, by Pinetarpress.com, as the Top Ranked Youth Baseball Glove. One of three gloves in the rookie series. The ARA 93 uses full grain soft leather in the construction for easy break-in and comfort. It is an 11″ glove that is blue with a mesh back. ARA 93 is designed for six-to-nine-year old’s who are serious about baseball and want to play like their favorite ball players. “We are proud of all of our series of gloves” says Lawrence Gilligan, President “It has always been our purpose to design and manufacture the top level gloves, no matter what the price point” Pinetarpress.com notes Akadema’s use of U.S. steerhide leather in constructing this glove. This highly durable yet soft leather is used on the palm and web sections of the glove. On the back, special AkademaLyte leather has been used. This ensures that the glove remains light-weight enough for a comfortable wear, without wearing down the player. The ARA 93 98 is available for both right-handed and left-handed catchers.
