Coach Daddy

Pros: 100% Made in USA. Fit and finish of a hand made glove is outstanding. The glove has game playable feel out of the wrapper. It's light, correct size 12u and down. My kids are 5,7,9,11 and they all use it. Free 1 year warranty/re-lacing from Nokona. I've dealt with them on other models I have owned, and they don't ask questions other then what's wrong and then they fix the problem. I.E. My sons S200 was a bit loopy, - they put in a firmer padding and now ti's amazing. - The company just rocks. The leather is amazing in feel and it can really stick to the baseballs. However, it's not sticky. Slightly abraded which is perfect for catching the ball. - I'm keeping this one.

Cons: The only cons are that the glove pocket is not very deep out of the wrapper like other gloves are. However, it is the right depth for a youth player to keep the ball in with little effort of squeezing it in there. It's probably 30% broken in. It's up to you to break the hinges.

Look for another option T. Suarez Coach

Pros: The leather is very soft and the fit for 13u is great.

Cons: The laces do not hold up. I bought one for each of my sons and I am constantly making adjustments and having to retighten. I have rarely had to do this with our Rawlings or A2000

Questions and Answers

Would a 32" be too small for a high school catcher? Grant
Typically, for a high school catcher, I would recommend a 33.00 inch pattern. The Nokona Select Plus Series Catchers Mitt Glove: S-2 features a 32.00 +/- inch pattern so it may be too small for a high school player.
John P.
Would this mitt work for a 9 year old? Closet Flange
The Nokona Select Plus Series Catchers Mitt Glove: S-2 will feature a intermediate fit, so it will be more beneficial for kids that are a little bit older than 9 years old. I would recommend looking at a youth fit for your player.
Nick
I need to buy a catcher's mitt for my 11 and 9 year old. This seems like a good choice. Question is, can I squeeze my big paw in there if I need to catch these two screw balls? RG
The Nokona Select Plus Series Catchers Mitt Glove: S2 is designed with a snug fit for younger players and so we would not recommend this mitt for an adult. The smaller wrist opening and tighter fingers stalls will make it tough to get a larger hand in.
Cameron
Is this the same S2 Alpha Select mitt I have found on the Nokona website? Kevin Donham
Yes, this Nokona Select Plus Series Catchers Mitt Glove (S-2) will be the same as the Alpha Select + S-2 featured on Nokona. The lighting in our picture and the lighting in the Nokona picture are slightly different which makes the coloring look off between the two. However, they are the same mitt.

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.
