Akadema is not just another big sporting goods supplier cranking out the same old equipment. Akadema makes innovative gear based on an in-depth knowledge of the game from playing the game. In less than a decade, we have become one of the hottest baseball and softball equipment companies in America for professional, college, high school and serious youth players. And we are just getting started.

How did it all start? A former professional baseball player, company co-founder Lawrence Gilligan recognized that there had been little or no innovation in baseball gloves for decades. So he decided to do something about it. Along with his brother Joe, Lawrence started Akadema with the purpose of designing a series of new innovative gloves that would improve a players performance.

USA made PRODUCT 1

USA Patriot Series USA 102H

In August 2008, Akadema did what very few American companies do these days. They brought American manufacturing home and created jobs for American craftsmen. Why is this so unique? Since the 1950s the American baseball glove manufacturing industry has shrunk from an estimated five thousand jobs to less then fifty jobs in 2007. A new baseball factory has not been built in the USA by an established recognized brand in nearly two decades. The reasons for the demise are all too familiar: the costs of wages, insurance, benefits, taxation, and regulations. These obstacles increase the products cost over three times and make it impossible to compete against foreign imports. Then why would Akadema build gloves in the USA? The ownership has a love of the game and the USA. Akadema believes Americans should be able to make products which are loved and respected around the world. Our goal is to be the USAs largest domestic baseball glove manufacturer and make the best quality product.
