Nice leather Stephen Strauss Coach

Pros: Break in period was short. Excellent leather that will last for years. Good combination of stiffness and flexibility where my daughter can use it on infield and outfield.

Cons: It is on the heavy side so I wouldn't recommend it for a smaller player.

Have a question about the Nokona Alpha 12.5" Fastpitch Softball Glove: S-V1250H? Ask our team of experts and they will respond within 24 hours.

My daughter will be starting in 12U travel ball, next season, she is currently playing 10U travel. She is primarily an outfielder. I'm curious if I should go with the 12.5" Alpha select or the 12" version? This will be used for 12U.
Based on what you told us about your daughter I would recommend going with this version, the 2017 Nokona Alpha 12.5" Fastpitch Softball Glove (S-V1250H).
My daughter will be moving to 12U this season. She is a left handed pitcher/1B and will most likely see time in the OF. We are also looking at the Buckaroo. Which glove would be best for her?
The 12.5" length will be solid for her as a utility player. If you wanted to get the higher quality mitt in regard to leather quality, I would suggest the Nokona X2 Buckaroo Series Fastpitch Glove (X2-V1250) over this 2017 Nokona Alpha 12.5" Fastpitch Softball Glove (S-V1250H). The X2 Buckaroo combo of Stampede and Kangaroo leathers will create a glove that his higher potential longevity.
What glove would be best for a 12 year old girl on 12 and under travel team for outfield mostly but some 3rd? Will be going up to 14 and under soon.

The Nokona Alpha 12.5" Fastpitch Softball Glove: S-V1250H would be a great choice for a player who is playing outfield and some third.
I'm a guy and wanna buy this glove for slow pitch softball. Is this a unisex glove or just girls?
The Nokona Alpha 12.5" Fastpitch Softball Glove: S-V1250H is constructed with the smaller hands of female players in mind. Depending on hand size will determine if this specific model will work for you. An option with a larger internal structure would be the Nokona Alpha Select Plus Series Baseball Glove: S-7T.
Adult male considering this glove for slow pitch softball, would be a glove to consider?

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.
