Nokona Alpha 12" Fastpitch Softball Glove: S-V1200C

Versatility is the name of your game in the field and this Nokona Alpha 12-inch fastpitch softball glove is up to the task. Nokona has been making professional-grade baseball gloves since 1934 and this Alpha series glove is a chip off the old block. Like all Nokona gloves, this model is individually crafted from cutting to stitching to embroidery at the brand's production facility in Nocona, Texas. This glove features an attractive colorway with a natural palm side and brown upper side with rich maroon piping along the cuff and fingers. At 12 inches, this glove is an ideal choice for adults and bigger youth athletes who can use some extra pocket space for those hard-hit drives.

Glove Benefits

Nokona has completely revamped its Alpha series with improved leather and a new design. Although break-in will still be required, this glove has been specifically engineered for a softer, more supple feel and reduced break-in time. The upper portion of the glove is crafted with Nokona's proprietary SuperSoft leather ensuring all-day comfort with striking good looks. The palm side is made with the brand's new AmericanKip leather, which is made from American steerhide that is tanned to look, feel and perform like kip leather imported from Europe or Japan. The sum total is a glove that's ready to hit the field with you right out of the box and made to take a beating.


Nokona extends a twelve (12) month manufacturer’s warranty on all their gloves.

Questions and Answers

Have a question about the Nokona Alpha 12" Fastpitch Softball Glove: S-V1200C? Ask our team of experts and they will respond within 24 hours.

My daughter is 11, 4’11” with small hands, and is a real good travel/select-level infielder who also plays some outfield as well. She has been using an entry-level Rawlings 12” glove that simply isn’t cutting it anymore. I want to get her a Nokona glove due to the quality and being USA-made. I have noticed that Nokona’a sizing tends to run bigger than Rawlings (returned a Nokona 12.5” that was simply HUGE on her hand and at least 1.5-2” longer than her 12” Rawlings). So... question is, is this glove the right choice for her size or is there another Nokona (or other brand) that you would recommend? Price is not a concern for quality. Dave Heffner
Yes, I am confident that this Nokona Alpha 12" Fastpitch Softball Glove (S-V1200C) would be a fantastic fit for your daughter! Even if it might feel a tad lose at first, there is an adjustable wrist strap that will allow her to make it tighter!
I was trying to understand the differences in feel. This Nokona is essentially "no break-in needed" but "the feel is stiff" compared to the Rawlings HOH "needs breaking in" and "the feel is soft." Does the feel mean the flexibility of the leather? Heidi
How soft a glove is out of the box depends more so on the leather being used, the amount of padding in the palm, and how much an item might be pre-treated by the manufacturer. The Nokona Alpha 12" Fastpitch Softball Glove: S-V1200C is typically easier to get game ready when compared to a Rawlings HOH model.

About the Brand

Joe Phillips writes about his visit to Nokona. It was like sitting in at the plantation party in Gone with the Wind or maybe gazing from the grandstand at the “Field of Dreams” while the Black Sox players tried to work out their idled muscle kinks. And, I was gently reminded by the lines in that movie while I dug into a delicious plate of North Texas barbecue: “threshing crews eating at outdoor tables. It continually reminds us of what once was, like an Indian-head penny in a handful of new coins. . . You talk a good dream.” And here I was. . . graciously invited into this magical and charming “Field of Glove-Making Dreams” in former Comanche Indian land at Nocona, Texas. It was a warm August evening, basked in a golden harvest moon, while friends and the Nokona family paid its kindly southern regards to two of their own and two of America’s finest but relatively obscure glove makers, Bobby Storey and Elvin Ray “Ab” Lemons. You see, the pair had just completed fifty years of time-honored employment with Nocona Athletic Goods, the last of the all-American made ball glove company's. The occasion brought echoes of past successes and human contentment, but in Nocona today you still experience much the same American texture of yesterday and perhaps a glimpse into tomorrow as well.

The two stately gentlemen were being honored in a way that could have taken place in the same manner when they first reported for full-time work at Nokona, in 1952, or back even earlier, in 1933 when the company started making sports equipment. During a brief and informal presentation at the celebration, Nokona’s new sales manager called the two glove makers “Legends - because that’s what their ball gloves stood for, American know-how and pride taken in a best-made product.”

A man of few words but a marveled craftsman who could literally conjure a sows ear into a playable baseball mitt, Mr. Lemons got up and fondly recalled the several men he worked with through his half-century and of the training that had been passed along to him from his old bosses.

His counter part and just as talented, Bobby Storey, had filled in at just about every job at Nokona. Bobby, the son of the sporting goods founder, R.E. “Bob” Storey had most recently served as president and now chairman of the board of Nokona. Though past retirement age like Mr. Lemons, he’s now serving at one of his favorite roles, that of ball glove designer.

At a time for employment in this country when five years is considered a long tenure with the same company, Ab and Bobby are not even the first to complete a half-century journey with Nocona Athletics. The now deceased Jewell Brickey, hit that milestone in 1993, after joining the company during World War II. That’s the kind of devotion that employees forge into this glove-making outfit. A devoted and sustained tenure here is not rare. Last year the company advertising, displayed along with Storey and Lemons, three other employees who had garnered 40 years with Nokona, Warren Clary, Bud Meekins, and Melvin Weedin.“

I don’t have to tell you that the one constant through all the years has been baseball”, wrote W.P. Kinsella. And the most constant of ball glove makers has been Nokona, and the men and women there who keep alive the tradition of American craftsmanship of ball glove making. The spirit of glove-making is still alive and well in Nocona, Texas.
