Comments about Akadema APM-42 Praying Mantis Series 32.5 Inch Baseball Catcher's Mitt:
I bought this catcher's mitt for my Freshmen playing catcher for his high school J.V. team. It took a little bit of work to break in but he loves it. I like the extra sturdy stitching and quality for the exceptional price. The color is a bit more grey than it shows, which is much better. We would buy another
Feels true to size
