New to Nokona, this Youth performance series is made with our top-of-the-line leathers, Stampede™ and Buffalo, for ideal structure, weight, and very easy break-in. The combination of these two proprietary Nokona leathers makes these gloves ready for play right off the shelf without any need for steaming. The Alpha Select Youth™ series is offered in three versions for the most serious travel ball players: the S-100 for up to 10U; the S-200 and S-300 for up to 14U.
* Please be aware that there is no coloring in laser branding, the contrast will be greater on lighter colored leathers.

This is a young boys second mitt, after he has learned how to use a mitt. Once broken in a bit, and some adjustment to a real mitt, maybe a week, it's the absolute top, nothing better. It's a real mitt, not B.S. I am proud of my son's using it. It always performs, and has elevated his performance.

This is my sons first year playing baseball. A month b4 his baseball season I went to a local store and bought him the Youth Wilson A-500 because it was really soft and easy for him to close. A week b4 the season started I felt that his Wilson glove was so soft because it wasn't good quality. I wanted to get him a glove that was top quality, that he could keep for a long time and that he could break in b4 his first game. We bought the Alpha S-100 glove, some Nokona Premium cream and we spend 3 days breaking it in. After the first day it was ready to play, after the 3rd day it was perfect. He loves his glove and says it feels better than his first one. He has confidence in his glove and know it will last. He's playing each position his first year and this glove is perfect for that. You only get one time to make a first impression and his Alpha S-100 is making a great first impression, of what I hope will be a love for baseball. Thank you Nokona!
