The ADJ 154 is made with our Precision Leather that is perfect for serious first basemen that compete at the high school and college level. The Baseballdiamond.com says about our first base mitts “AHC94-12 Youth First Base Mitt. It measures 11.5 inches, which makes it suitable for typical 8 and 9-year old players.
This model features a very narrow hand opening and finger stalls, which offers a snug fit for smaller hands. Its features also include a single post web, a conventional open back, and a very deep pocket to secure the ball thrown by other infielders trying to beat the runner to 1st base. It’s extremely well-constructed, with firm padding and strong laces that compensates for the strength of the thrown baseballs.”
