Online PR News – 20-May-2020 – Bloomingdale – Akadema is proud to announce the Prodigy Series Youth Catcher’s Mitt “The Praying Mantis” AGC 98 was ranked at the top of Best Youth Catcher’s Mitts of 2020 by bakosports.com. Designed by Hall of Famer Gary Carter, the AGC 98 features the patent stress wedge technology, spiral-lock and Praying Mantis. The Stress Wedge, located between the index finger and thumb, and Praying Mantis offer shock absorbing protection to help protect the hand against injury and sting from receiving the ball. Bakosports.com says The Akadema Prodigy Series is no exception to this quality of excellence. This 32-inch pattern glove is made from top quality Steerhide leather in the palm and webbing. That helps ensure long-lasting durability and better protection to the glove hand. The back of the glove is made from AkademaLyte synthetic leather. This helps cut down on the weight of the glove and makes it easier to maneuver and quickly transfer the ball to your glove hand for a fast throwdown. Additionally, this material makes the mitt easier to break in. “This youth catcher’s mitt has been one of our flagship products for many years” says Lawrence Gilligan, President. “We feel the patented Stress Wedge pad allows for stress free catching and the spiral lock web allows for easy ball retention”. AGC 98 is available for both right-handed and left-handed catchers
