Pros: Exceptional Leather, quick break in, top of the line quality. Bought this glove for my 8 year old son. He is average height but is very slender. He wanted a high quality, but small glove for short stop. Aldult gloves were all too loose, but the S 100 I is perfect. You won't be disappointed, this glove is as nice as my adult A2K!

Cons: None!

Perfect for a mid season change Ted Briscoe Parent

Pros: Easily broke in, quality as expected from Nokona. Had the glove for about two weeks and he was playing games with it after only having it one week. So far it is exactly what we expected.

Cons: None so far

Questions and Answers

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

My son is 11. He plays 2nd base in select ball. He is smaller then average 52"/57 lbs. Would the S-100-I or the S-200-I be a better fit for him? GK
For your 11 year old player, I would recommend going with the S-200-I for use at second base. That glove will give him the size needed to perform the best at her current age when compared to this Nokona Alpha Select Series (S-100-I).
I have a small 6 yr. old using a Shoeless Joe (1000JR). I'm wondering if I should wait a year before moving him to the Nokona Alpha (S-100-I). With his small hands, I worry about him being able to close the Nokona. What are your thoughts? greg
This Nokona Alpha Select Series (S-100-I) will come with around a 10.50" length on it and I think that if you wait a year or so before moving up to that length (especially if he is functioning fine right now with the Shoeless Joe model), your player's hand should be just big enough to close this Nokona model efficiently.
My soon to be 7 year old currently uses an A450 Pedroia glove. He is going to play travel ball and throws daily. Is this the best glove for him playing middle infield? Colby
The Nokona Alpha Select Series (S-100-I) would be an excellent option for your son.
My son is turning 7 soon and has settled into the middle infield positions. Is this a good choice and how long can I expect this glove to last before moving up to 11-11.25? Ken Mitchell
For most 7 year old players, we make a general suggestion of going with a 10.00" model of glove. This Nokona Alpha Select Series (S-100-I) features an approximate 10.5" length on it and should work well for your player at 7 years old. He would definitely be able to use it as a 7 year old, but once he gets older he may need something longer. The model I would recommend for you guys to get something slightly larger would be the Nokona Alpha Select Series Baseball Glove (S-200 Youth) which has an approximate 11.25" length. That glove will give your player a model that he could use for an extended period time.
I have a small 6year old with small hands. Do u think this glove would have small enough finger stalls and wrist area for him? Anonymous
I think that the Nokona Alpha Select Series (S-100-I) should fit him, however, if you wanted some extra confidence when you make the purchase, be sure and add Glove Assurance for $29.99 additional to the total of the glove. Glove Assurance gets you a 100 day trial and if you decide that it is not the glove for you within 100 days, you can return it for a refund.
My Son is about to turn 7 , he's 4 foot 2 and weights 59lbs. He has the 9 inch shoeless joe glove and it's too small. What do u think about this glove or a 10 inch model Top speed
I would highly recommend the Nokona Alpha Select Series (S-100-I) for a seven year old. I think that this would fit him well.
ok my son is 16 and 235lbs and plays infield for high school what do you recommend for him Logan Farmer
The Nokona Alpha Select Series: S-100-I features a youth fit, so it would most likely be too small for your player. If he mostly plays middle infield, I would suggest something is an 11.5" size like the Nokona Walnut 11.5" Baseball Glove: W-1150M. If he plays more third base, I would suggest something in the 11.75" size like the Nokona Walnut 11.75" Baseball Glove: W-1175H.
Trying to get a glove for my son. He's small, about 5 1/2 inches from tip of index to bottom of palm and he's 49 inches tall and weighs 57 lbs. I would like the glove to be big enough but I do not want him swimming in it. What are you suggestions? Also, I would like it to last a little while. check
The best size to get a youth player will depend a lot on the position(s) they play as well as the age of the player. Our glove coach feature can help one determine the best size to get a player. As for choosing an option that will last for multiple seasons, most youth gloves will feature a full grain or bio soft leather construction allowing the glove to be near game ready out of the box. The Nokona Alpha Select Series: S-100-I is a 10.50 +/- 0.25 inch pattern making it a good fit for a player around the ages of 7-10. The combination of Buffalo and Stampede leathers that are used to make this glove, as well as the Nolera composite padding system, allow this glove to retain its shape well over time and gives the player the capability (with proper care) to use this glove over multiple seasons.
My son will be 6 in about a month. He is above average height and average weight. Good player. do you think the Nokona 10.5 inch will be too big for him at this time? Should I go with the Shoeless Joe 10 inch? Josh Embler
For a 6 year old player, our general recommendation would be a 9.50 inch glove. The Nokona Alpha Select Series: S-100I might be a little big for him at first but would serve him well till he is 8-9 years of age. Whether or not to get a 10 inch, versus this 10.50 inch glove, would come down to what you feel he could handle or what he is most comfortable with.
Can you do an embroidered name on the glove? Mike Rice
Unfortunately, we do not offer an embroidery service on the Nokona Alpha Select 10.5" Youth Baseball Glove: S-100I or any of the other gloves we carry.
What is the difference between this glove (S-100I) and the S-100 Youth? W. Mims
There is no difference between the Nokona Alpha 10.5" Youth Baseball Glove: S-100I and the Nokona Alpha 10.5" Youth Baseball Glove: S-100 Youth other than some slight cosmetic differences.

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.
