Pros: No break in period required. My son played catch with me for 1 hour the day he received it and was using this glove for his game the next day. Perfect 10.5" size for my 7 year old son who is not very big (48" tall and 49 lbs). The Bison leather is lightweight, soft and has just enough structure to it for a youth player looking for a high-end glove and the finger stalls and wrist opening are smaller for a youth player. All of his teammates wanted to try it on and check it out since it really stands out with the light colored Bison leather and red laces. Love the fact that it's made right here in America in Nocona, TX. Plan on only buying Nokona baseball gloves moving forward.

Questions and Answers (6)

Have a question about the Nokona Alpha Select 10.5" Youth Baseball Glove: S-100I? Ask our team of experts and they will respond within 24 hours.

Does this glove require a lot of breaking in or just oil after the season?
The Nokona Alpha Select 10.5" Youth Baseball Glove: S-100I is going to have a minimal break-in period as the glove will arrive "game ready." Light amounts of oil can be applied to help soften the leather but it is certainly not necessary.
Do you sell this ball glove in a 11.75 inch? If so, how much would it cost?
The Nokona Alpha Select 10.5" Youth Baseball Glove: S-100I is only featured in a 10.50 inch model. At this time, any 11.75 inch model from Nokona will be an adult glove.
Will you be getting in any more of the RH thrower version of this glove? If not, when will the 2019 version be released?
Unfortunately we are not scheduled to receive anymore of the Nokona Alpha Select 10.5" Youth Baseball Glove: S-100I in a RHT. As for when a newer version of this glove will be released from Nokona, we have not received notification if/when Nokona will be releasing an equivalent model.
My son is a small 7 year old. We got the Shoeless Joe Joe Junior Series: 900JRIW Youth but I think that is too small to be playing with 8-9 year olds. What’s your opinion on this glove or the Shoeless Joe Joe Junior Series: 1000JRIW Youth?
Nathan Sundita
The Nokona Alpha Select 10.5" Youth (S-100i) is an excellent model for ages 10-11 and younger in my opinion. If you are wanting a glove that is a little stiffer, may take a bit longer to break in, but should last a little longer, than I would go with the Nokona. If you want a glove that is more game ready when you receive it, then the Shoeless Joe is probably the way to go.

I have an 8U kid who plays little league and travel ball. He pitches and plays infield. Is this the best glove available, price does not matter?
I would probably recommend a glove a little longer than this Nokona Alpha Select 10.5" Youth Baseball Glove (S-100I) for an 8U player. Our Glove Coach's general recommendation would be 10.50" for an 8 year old. However, if you wanted something with which he could grow, I would recommend an 11.00" or 11.25" glove. A glove that I think would be one to consider is the Nokona Alpha Select Series (S200IBG).
Is this Glove Made in USA?
Chris G
Nokona notes that this "Alpha series is carefully crafted out of 100% American Bison with 65% USA labor". It is partially built in the United States, but not entirely.

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.
