Made in America--Excellent quality JW Other

Pros: Very well made, top quality leather, Made in America. Bought this glove for playing ball with my sons to replace my old, worn out glove from high school.

Cons: No softer leather in hand area, the leather is so thick and stiff that I developed a blister on my thumb after an hour of use.

My son is 11 yrs old and plays shortstop/2nd base on a semi competitive league team. Would this glove be a smart choice? He's smaller (short) for his age. Trey in KC
We generally recommend a 11.5-11.75" size for middle infielders, so the Nokona Walnut 11.75" Baseball Glove: W-1175H will work well for your player.
My son will be 11 in December and primarily plays pitcher and infield positions, but at times plays outfield. Would this glove be appropriate? CC
The Nokona Walnut 11.75" Baseball Glove: W-1175H is designed to fit an adult hand and thus may not work well for an 11 year old. The overall size of the glove, 11.75 inch pattern, is a great size to use as an 11 year old that plays all over the field though. The Nokona Alpha Select Series Baseball Glove: S-222 Youth is a better option to consider for an 11 year old.
Would this be a good glove for a 14 year old who plays 3B and outfield? Alec Rogers
Yes, the H-Web and 11.75" sizing of the Nokona Walnut 11.75" Baseball Glove (W-1175H) make it an excellent option for a player playing both 3rd and OF.

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.
