Pros: Bought this glove to catch for my daughter. I always wanted a left handed catchers mitt. Takes along time to brake in. I am sure we are at thousands and thousands of pitches and it is just starting to loosen up. Best glove I have ever had and worth every dime!!! Love it. Have even used it as a pillow! I show it off like it is a kid.

Cons: Stiff when you start out... Use two hands to catch.

Pros: Beautiful, quality glove. My daughter is thrilled with it and treats it like royalty. She always treats it with NLT glove conditioner and wipes it after use.

Cons: The stiffness out of the box was a little daunting but if you just play catch everyday it breaks in rather quickly. Get a couple tubes of the Nokoma NLT glove conditioner and apply liberally after use and stick a ball in it and tie it closed with a shoelace. We also rubbed some infield dirt in the pocket to scuff it up a bit. We are about 85% broken in after two weeks of use.

Pros: I purchased this for my daughter for her first year of U14 ball. We purchased Nakona because we were pleased with her field mitt. We definitely made the right choice. She is in her second year with it and it has been wonderful for her. I personally like the low maintenance. Put some oil on it once a month and it is good to go. I sure hope you are still making this model when this one expires, because I will be looking for another one. Great, Great Product. PS. What are your recommendations for life span?

Cons: The wife almost kicked me of the house breaking it in. I can't tell you how many hours I spent smacking it with a mallet while watching TV at night; which worked for the initial break-in, but have to say it was about half way through the season until we got it to where she wanted it to be. Still well worth the time and effort.

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.
