Nokona Infielders Glove
Baseball was invented in Cooperstown, NY.
I played professionally, so I know something about gloves. I wanted to offer the best glove—and one that’s American-made. Turns out they’re one and the same.
This is an infielder’s glove, which means it’s right-handed. I played second base. I’m right-handed. As you know, lefties don’t play the infield (except first) because it takes too long to get into throwing position.
Nokona has been around since 1934, making the best gloves on the planet. Like us, they are a relatively small company and put their resources into the product, not endorsements (most pro players wear gloves because they are paid to, not because they are the best gloves).
Why would you want a Nokona?
For the same reason I do: because it’s the best.
Nokona Infielder’s Glove (No. 5876). For playing catch, shagging flies, turning 6-4-3 double plays, or sitting around the office pounding your fist into a piece of American history. Handmade in Texas from premium, top-grain steerhide. Part of the “Supersoft” line, the leather is infused with proprietary oils and waxes, giving it maximum flexibility and softness while maintaining structure. Closed web. 12” long. Right-handed only (we can special-order a lefty, though, so call us).
*Nokona suggests breaking in the glove the old-fashioned way: by playing catch. I put a baseball in the pocket, tie it shut with a rubber band or rope, leave it in a bucket of water overnight, then dry it in the sun while chanting voodoo.
