In August 2008, Akadema did what very few American companies do these days. They brought American manufacturing home and created jobs for American craftsman. Why is this so unique? Since the 1950's 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; after 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 USA's largest domestic baseball glove manufacturer and make the best quality product. Akadema is willing to sacrifice the bottom line.
We hope you will support Akadema and it's American initiative. All products, built here in the USA or abroad, will help Akadema create more American jobs.

Q: What if I didn't receive a tracking/delivery confirmation email?
A: Often, our emails are intercepted, deleted and/or otherwise caused to not arrive to you. This occurs because some ISP's (Internet Service Providers, including AOL, NetZero, MSN, Earthlink, Yahoo, Hotmail, and others) employ SPAM (junk e-mail) filters to minimize the amount of junk e-mail you receive. Because we are a high-volume merchant (we sell a lot of products), we also send a large volume of email (shipping confirmation, order confirmation, customer service replies, etc.). We are also, therefore, often "filtered" by these ISP's and, sometimes by SPAM filters or "rules" you may use on your email client software.
Q: How long will it be after I order before my order ships?
A: We ship orders the next business day after you pay for it. (So if you order on Friday night it won't ship until Monday.) In the event that we discover the product is damaged, unmerchandisable, or otherwise unavailable, we will not ship and will contact you to make arrangements for either a refund, reshipment, backorder or other applicable action.

Q: Can I pick up my Items and save on the shipping Costs?
A: Unfortunately we have stopped allowing local pickups, due to the amount of auctions that we are selling and certain paypal and credit card dispute issues that we have had to face.
