A baseball player's glove should be an extension of his hand, moving by the power of thought and instinct to be just at the right place at the right time. It should be light and comfortable enough that the player forgets he has anything at all covering his hand. Pro athletes' livelihoods depend on the ability of their gloves to deliver each and every time, which is why they turn to Akadema baseball gloves.

Akadema baseball gloves have only been around since 1997, but their impact has been profound and far-reaching. These unique pieces of sports equipment with exciting names and innovative design features have left their mark on the game at all levels. Groundbreaking entrepreneurs Lawrence and Joe Gilligan continue to invest in research and development in their quest for the perfect glove.

The Beloved Gloves

Akadema's Praying Mantis is the better mousetrap that catchers have been waiting on for decades. These mitts feature a stress wedge that reduces the impact on a catcher's hand and a special type of hinge that makes the pocket snap shut on impact. Two extra "finger hammocks" in the Mantis allow for a more comfortable and snug fit for the workhorse of the team.

The Reptilian is the Akadema baseball glove that answers the prayers of infielders everywhere. Its unique near-fingerless design makes for a huge, almost unbroken pocket that catches balls easier and keeps them longer. Perfect for scooping grounders, the Reptilian is just one example of the unparalleled excellence offered by Akadema baseball gloves.
