ARC88 - 12" Utility Right or Left Hand Throw For The Serious Youth Ball Player
The Akadema ARC88 has a 12" pattern making it perfect as a utility players glove. This glove is designed to be used at all positions except catcher. The ARC88 is part of the Prodigy Design Series of baseball gloves from Akadema. The ARC88 is a serious high level youth glove. The ARC88 uses the Grasp-Clasp wrist system to provide a secure, custom fit for a more manageable glove.
The ARC88 features a B-hive web, an open back and a deep pocket to secure the ball after the catch. These features and the size of the glove help you catch the ball better. You can catch the ball in the deep pocket and wrap your hand around the ball instead of pinching the ball and dropping it out of the glove. The Grasp Clasp locks the player's hand in the glove to ensure proper catching mechanics. The ARC uses the same USA Steerhide leather pocket and web as the Akadema Professional Series for increased durability and quality.
These features make the ARC88 one of the best youth baseball or softball gloves on the market.
Although designed for baseball, the ARC88 can be used for softball also. It's smaller size and grasp clasp wrist system allow it to fit a smaller players hand. This glove has a professional pattern similar to the Fastpitch Design Series ACE 70 - one of the Best Fastpitch gloves out there.
Remember to wear a Batting Glove to protect the leather interior of your new ARC 88 baseball softball glove
