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.

The design of the Alpha Select S-200 provides a generous pocket, yet snugly fits the hand of a younger player. The materials and workmanship are excellent. The glove is basically ready to use right out of the package, as advertised. We bought this as a gift for our 9-year-old grandson. While it is more expensive than lesser gloves, we thought the cost was justified given the effort he puts in, and the major costs associated with select/travel team ball. This glove definitely takes equipment out of the equation.
