My son will be playing 11U (pitcher and infield). What is the age range for this glove?
For this 2016 Nokona Alpha Select Series (S-200-I Youth), I think that it is certainly usable by players ranging 8 years old - 13 years old. I think at 11, your son could get a couple of years of use out of this glove before you might start thinking about moving to a new mitt.
I am looking at the Nokona Alpha S200 vs S200-I. My son is 9 yr old and plays short stop. What do you recommend?
The 2016 Nokona Alpha Select Series: S-200-I Youth and the 2016 Nokona Alpha Select Series Baseball Glove: S-200 Youth are the same glove except for the web pattern design. Both are great gloves so it really comes down to your personal preference (I-Web with the S-200-I Youth versus Modified T-Web with the S-200).
Can you get this glove with some customization such as last name or number?
Unfortunately, here at JustBallGloves, we do not have the ability to customize the 2016 Nokona Alpha Select Series: S-200-I Youth.
Is this glove closer to 11" or 11.25" in length?
This 2016 Nokona Alpha Select Series (S-200-I Youth) should be closer to an 11.25" length, but it can vary in size to be a little larger or smaller than the listed 11.25" length.
How long does it take to break this glove in to have it in game ready condition? Also, would it be suitable for a 9yr old playing 10u? I want a glove that he can use the next couple years.
The 2016 Nokona Alpha Select Series: S-200-I Youth should not take long to break-in. This is due to the Buffalo and Stampede leather construction. These leathers will give the glove a game-ready feel. As for the size of this glove, it features an 11.25 inch pattern which would be a good size for someone who is playing 10u baseball.
The description indicates a modified trap, the picture shows and I-Web. The model name includes -I, which indicates I-web as pictured. I do not see an IWeb S-200 on the manufacturer website. Could you clarify.
The 2016 Nokona Alpha Select Series (S-200-I Youth) is an I-Web. The modified trap was incorrectly entered and we apologize for the confusion. This matter has since been corrected. As for why it is not appearing on the manufacturer's website, this glove was an exclusive model for JustBallGloves.
