The Buckaroo Fastpitch Series features a perfect combination of Kangaroo leather and cowhides to form a lightweight yet sturdy glove that today's ballers look for.

In fact, Kangaroo Leather is one of the toughest leathers in the world so you know the Buckaroo Fastpitch Series is made to last. Nokona's classic Walnut Crunch Leather, on the other hand, adds body and form needed to maintain a solid pocket and overall fit. As if that's not enough, the Buckaroo Fastpitch Series features Nokona's new deep-pocket, easier break-in fastpitch pattern, which includes their new and improved Ristankor Closure System. This top-of-the-line feature meets the demands of today's top players. Originally developed in the 1950's, the Ristankor is now made with Velcro to secure the hand in the glove while allowing for an easier break-in. With a closed web and closed back, this 12.00 inch glove is ideal for pitchers, middle infielders, and third basemen. Nokona has built a reputation for providing the highest quality gloves, which are made right here in the USA!

Pros: Lightweight, yet protects the hand much better than my old Wilson A2000. It looks like it's going to keep its shape nicely. I can tell it will be durable by the second string of laces running across the middle of the fingers, unlike my Wilson that I mentioned before whose fingers are only held together at the tips. Most importantly, made in the U.S, so you know it's good!

Cons: Was a pain to break in; comes very stiff. The wrist closure system aggravates my hand, so you might want to try one on before ordering online. The one I received was more orange in color than what is depicted here, if the look is a factor for you.

Pros: Good quality leather and craftsmanship as expected by price and US made. But cons way out weights the pros from my experience.

Cons: Caution- tried natural break-in as recommended using a pitch machine then playing 14u fall and summer travel tourneys. Balls still rattle around in pocket after 11 months of concentrated play, so had glove professionally steamed (against manufacturer recommendation) as a last ditch effort to improve catch ability. Low temp steaming made leather a little softer, but balls still rattle in pocket and will come out of glove catching pop ups and diving. Great concept US made and good quality leather, but horrible short term results for us.

Fastpitch Softball Player

Pros: This glove is very well made. The leather is very sturdy and the glove is very tight and hasn't had any issues as to loose laces. I bought this glove in July of 2013 and started using it in the fall of 2014. I am still currently using it and like it very much. The web of the glove does have a "hook" so that may help with balls spinning out of the glove. The glove, used with conditioner, also forms very well and holds its shape if properly taken care of.

Cons: Words cannot describe how hard it is to break in this glove. Be warned that if it feels loose and broken-in one night, it will be stiff as a board the next morning. I'd give it at least a year to break in before you use it in a game, and that is being on the risky side. The wrist is also very stiff. I folded my glove in half and put it under my bed post at night to try and break in the wrist. Also, the leather is very tough and almost "springy". I condition my glove and tend to it regularly, but my glove still has a hard time receiving the ball and often the ball will pop out of my glove if it is hit hard enough. I understand the concept of having tougher leather, but when you are making a nail-biting play you want a glove that will receive a ball well and cushion it. Not one that will act against you. Something that I also didn't expect when I bought it was how thin the palm of the glove is.

Nokona quality Coach M Coach

Pros: Glove looks and feels great right out of the box. It’s not quite game ready but it’s not too far off. My DD is a 3B at 14U and had it about a month before she felt it was ready to use in a game. Some glove conditioner and plenty of playing catch had this glove game ready. A month in and she feels like it’s the best glove she’s ever had. Great return policy by Just Gloves. We ordered a few different models and they returned everything very quickly with no shipping fees. Strong company? I highly recommend them.

Cons: Not a lot of negatives about any Nokona product other than the cost but if you want true Made in the USA products, you gotta pay for it.

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

I purchased this glove 4 months ago and I am currently breaking it in. Even though it is small, could I still play outfield in it? I am mostly a pitcher and shortstop, but I occasionally will play outfield for an inning or so.
The Nokona Buckaroo Fastpitch Series: BKF-1200 is on the smaller side for outfield, but would be a suitable versatile glove.
Would it fit a 10 yr olds hand?
The Nokona Buckaroo Fastpitch Series: BKF-1200 is designed for an adult hand, but it does feature the adjustable wrist strap and will work for a 10 year olds hand.
I play centerfield in high school, should I look at a slightly bigger glove than this one?
The 12" pattern for the Nokona Buckaroo Fastpitch Series (BKF-1200) might be a little small. Typically a high school outfielder prefers a 12.50" or a 12.75" 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.
