Akadema manufactures in the USA a baseball glove line (The Patriot), a wood Bat line (Ash and Maple), and a metal bat line (The Deep / Apocalypse).
They also manufacture a Catchers Mitt called the Praying Mantis, it has advanced features for ease of catching and easy transfer of ball for quick throwing capabilities. It also has a “Double Flexhinge” which helps snap the glove shut after contact with the ball. Note: “The Hides are harvested in Europe and tanned in Japan.”
Bats can receive up to 8,000 lbs of force when making contact with a 90+ mile per hour pitch. The metal bats get their strength from the manufacturing process; dipping a 100% Scandium Alloy into a deep Glycol vat for cool down. The bat also has a lighter feeling due to their Counter Balance technology features.
A large portion of their products are made in the USA, but like many sporting goods suppliers they source mix their products. The Custom made gloves are NOT US made; they are produced in China.
Note: Verify through out the buying process, the product you wish to purchase is “American Made”.
