In a place called Nocona, Texas, premium ball gloves have been designed and handcrafted since 1934. For generations, the people of this small town have dedicated their lives to provide the best baseball product product, made right here in America, so that you can use it with great pride and confidence. The new Buckaroo Black Series features patterns made specifically for fastpitch softball players. These gloves are made from a combination of kangaroo leather and cowhide. All leathers used by Nokona are top-grain and hand-selected to meet Nokona's rigorous standards. This combination of leathers creates an incredibly lightweight feel that makes these gloves easy to control. Pound for pound, kangaroo is one of the toughest leathers in the world as it has a tensile strength 2 to 3 times higher than cowhide. This leather is ideal for the fingers of ball gloves as it is smooth and durable. The Buckaroo Black Series is about halfway game-ready, but will require some break-in, as all high quality gloves do. With a closed back design and adjustable wrist strap, the Buckaroo Black Series will provide the control necessary to dominate the softball field for years to come. Nokona: America's Pastime. American Made. Free Shipping!

Pros: This glove is worthy of the 5 stars based on looks alone. From the two tone styling down to the American flag proudly stitched along the finger, it is superb! It is very evident that this glove is handmade simply because of the lack of consistency from finger to finger. This actually is one of my favorite attributes of the glove, giving each one a desirable uniqueness. A proper break in is needed, even though it is very lite it has a bit of a stiff feel when wearing it. This is easily overcome by a proper break in. Hand message in some Nokona NLT conditioner regularly and use it, plain and simple. I truly feel this is a glove to last a life time for a very reasonable glove.

Cons: Realistically, none.

Pros: Great glove. My daughter was looking for a new glove that would last her more than one season. Now, she has finally found one with Nokona.

Cons: Takes a little bit to break in, but once you do it's fantastic. Be patient!

Overall Rating

Pros: I bought this glove a few months ago and it is now starting to feel game ready. You can definitely tell that it is real leather and makes the transition from fielding to throwing much quicker. I was a bit hesitant to down-size from my 13" glove but now all my worry is gone and I can't wait to start using it this season. It has a really nice "snap" sound when you catch it.

Cons: It took quite a while to break it in since I like to feel 100% about my gloves but I'm glad it's broken in. Like I said above I down-sized from a 13" glove and it takes a while to get used to that. The padding in the palm was not as thick as I was expecting.

So far, so good. Steph Player

Pros: So far this glove is amazing. Very well constructed. The leather is high quality and the wrist strap is adjustable which is a nice feature. I love that it has the index finger hole. It's a beautiful glove. I'm still breaking it in which I think will take a while, but I once it's looser I think it's going to be incredible.

Cons: Takes a little bit to break in. Hard to find for purchase anywhere. Expensive, but hopefully worth it.

Questions and Answers (17)

Have a question about the Nokona Buckaroo Black Fastpitch Series: BKF-1200CBLK (BS1200CBLK)? Ask our team of experts and they will respond within 24 hours.

The comments for this glove indicate that it has a "softball pattern." For old-man softball (age 57 and up), will this glove be better suited or the highest quality for someone playing the infield? How does this glove compare to the BL 1200 C or BL 1200 CBK?
A 12 inch glove with a softball pattern would be better suited for someone playing the infield. This is definitely a high quality glove that's not only great for softball, but baseball as well. It will be a little softer and will have a larger pocket compared to the BL1200C and BL1200CBLK.
Is this a women's glove? My daughter is currently using a Buckaroo amg 175. Does this have small fingers?
It is designed for softball, not fastpitch. But, it does run small so a woman could use the glove.
What's the difference between a "softball" glove and a "fastpitch" softball glove?
There is not going to be a difference between softball and fastpitch gloves.
What size do you recommend for playing infield?
It depends on the age of the player. I recommend checking out our Glove Coach located at the top of our webpage. It's a great tool!
Is this glove offered with the modified trapeze pocket? My daughter likes the strap on the back but likes the modified trapeze pocket.
All of the Nokona Fastpitch Series gloves feature the basket web. Nokona does offer baseball gloves with modified trapeze webs but they do not have the adjustable strap.
Is this the best glove you would recommend for third base fastpitch?
The Nokona Buckaroo Black Fastpitch would be an excellent choice for a third baseman. The size will depend on the age of the player. For exact sizing check out our glove coach:
My daughter is a relatively strong, tall and new 10 and under softball player. For a young girl, she has fairly large hands and is 5'1".
The Nokona Buckaroo Black Fastpitch Series would be an excellent choice for your daughter. It will require some break-in time though.
My daughter is almost 14, plays short stop for travel and 2nd for varsity and I'm looking to get her a new, nice glove, strong, flexible, good padding etc. I'm looking at a 123 to 12 1/2" Nokona, Worth Liberty Advanced, the A2000 etc. Can you please help explain the differences in them, pros and cons?
It would help to know exactly which gloves you are wanting to compare. However, glove shopping is pretty easy, because price tells the whole story. The higher the price, the higher the quality leather. The higher the quality of the leather, the stiffer and more durable the glove will be. So, after you; 1) Set your price and, 2) Choose your size, the rest comes down to the personal preference of the player. Feel free to call us at 1-866-321-4568 or email us at
My 12 year old/daughter mainly plays centerfield & 2nd Base. Her coach has recommended either a 12.25" or 12". Love the "looks" of the Buckaroo Black Fastpitch Series (BF1200CBLK) but, is a different model better (i.e. Classic Walnut)? Also, is this glove also available in 12.25" (or, does it only go up in 1/2 inch increments)? Lastly, what is the difference between this glove & the AMG175KP?
The Nokona Buckaroo Black Fastpitch Series: BF1200CBLK (BS1200CBLK) is an excellent glove for her position. The Buckaroo is not available in a 12.25". However, the 12.50" runs small and will fit like a 12.25" glove. The AMG175KP is the same glove as the Nokona Buckaroo Black Fastpitch Series. The only difference is the color.
My daughter is 13 and playing on a 16U travel team. She will be entering high school next year. She is 5'3" and plays 3rd base. What size should I be looking at in this glove? Should I get a 12.00" or 12.50"?
We recommend a 12.00" such as the Nokona Buckaroo Black Fastpitch Series (BF1200CBLK).
Is this glove (black fastpitch BF1200) available in right hand thrower?
Unfortunately we are out of this glove in the right hand thrower model at this time, however we should be getting more of this glove added to our inventory in the next few weeks.
Kyle J.
Is this a discontinued glove, or will you be getting more right hand throw models in?
The Nokona Buckaroo Black Fastpitch Series: (BS1200CBLK) has not been discontinued in the right hand throw. We are currently out of stock. However, we generally get new shipments in every 2-4 weeks.
Why is the right hand glove $80 more than a left hand glove?
The pricing for the Nokona Buckaroo Black Fastpitch Series (BKF1200CBLK) (BS1200CBLK) are sent us from the manufactures themselves. We cannot give you an exact answer as to why the right handed glove is more expensive than the left handed glove.
I played fastpitch softball for club and college. I played third and left field. Now I am a mother of a 7 year old boy that plays club baseball. I usually just practice with him. I am hoping to join an adult softball team eventually. Do you recommend 1175 or 1200? I like a smaller glove, especially when I'm playing catch with a baseball. But I don't want it to be too small if I go back to playing softball.
While an 11.75 inch glove could be used, a 12 inch model like the Nokona Buckaroo Black Fastpitch Series (BKF-1200CBLK (BS1200CBLK)) would be much more typical. I would probably recommend going with the 12 inch size if you are wanting to eventually play softball with it.
Can this glove be used by either men or women?
The 2016 Nokona Buckaroo Black Fastpitch Series: BKF-1200CBLK (BS1200CBLK) is intended for female fastpitch but may be used by either men or women.
John P.
A local store offers a very similar glove with a 10% discount for any local youth athletic teams. Would you be able to match this discount?
Unfortunately no, we can only price match offers that are available to all customers.
Kyle J.
Would this glove be too large for an 11-year-old girl? If it is, what would you recommend for this age for an infielder?
The Nokona Buckaroo Black Fastpitch Series: BKF-1200CBLK (BS1200CBLK) would most likely be too big for an 11 year old player. For a player of that age, our general recommendation would be 11.50 inches but a player can always go up in size if they are comfortable with a bigger glove.

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.
