The Akadema AFL12 11.5 inch baseball glove is a top-quality fielding glove designed for serious infielders looking for optimal performance and comfort. The glove is constructed with a number of innovative features that make it stand out from the rest of the field.
The 11.5 inch size of the glove is perfect for infielders, providing ample coverage while still allowing for quick and easy transfers. The funnel pattern is a unique design that was created specifically for infielders who prefer to keep their gloves open rather than closed. This design allows for maximum fielding surface, making it easier to field those tough ground balls and line drives.
The Torino leather used to make the glove is top-notch, providing excellent durability and a soft feel. The leather has been treated to ensure that it is both lightweight and flexible, allowing for easy movement and maneuverability.
One of the standout features of this glove is the I-web, which is known for its ability to trap the ball and provide a secure grip. The dual-hinge design with inverted thumb and pinky finger further enhances the glove's ability to catch and hold the ball, while the open back design allows for a comfortable fit and easy adjustability.
The medium pocket is perfect for infielders, providing just the right amount of depth for easy ball retrieval and quick transfers. The glove is designed for right-hand throwers and is recommended for use by 2nd base, 3rd base, and shortstop positions.
