I have had my Nokona glove for 20 years. brings back a LOT of memories when I put it on. I cant wait to pass it down to my son or daughter.

A shame the sport isn't as beautiful as this craftmanship... A sport full of steroids and commercialbreaks.

Nice. $290 is extremely reasonable for the quality of workmanship put into that. This is how its ment to be.

A rich heritage that goes back 100 years?? 😂😂😂😂😂😂 Americans.. Try Italy with a rich heritage that goes back more than a thousand years.

Modern gloves require zero skill on behalf of the wearer. Their the size of snow-shovel scoops. Who couldn't catch a ball wearing one?

Dustoff85 (13 дней назад)
Wow, hard work. I couldn't do it. I hope they pay these Professional Craftsman and women well.
Dustoff85 (13 дней назад)
These blow away Wilson. I look at these gloves as the Rolls Royce of gloves. If I was in my 20's I would buy one in a heartbeat. Nice video
Matthew Milam (13 дней назад)
This video really makes me miss playing baseball, I wish I never gave it up. If I would’ve just stuck with it and followed my dreams...

Freddy Krueger would be impressed. Although he might wish for the addition of deadly sharp metal blades to the gloves.

Great story but misleading title.. they are NOT the last glove maker in the US

TheRainman904 (17 дней назад)
you mean to tell me, that this is the only company making baseball gloves in the entire American continent?. I doubt that.
Larry Whaley (18 дней назад)
I have a Nokona glove, and I love it. I thought Shoeless Joe gloves were made in USA, though.

How much for one these glovrs
SynicalNoah (19 дней назад)
It’s sad everything is mass produced nowadays instead of hand made. Usually hand made products are better, last longer, and you know the story behind each item.
Darryl Maynard (19 дней назад)
Worth EVERY damn penny! Thanks Nokona!

Remember when I played ball these are the only gloves I used back then
WITHDRAW (20 дней назад)
Others have said it... But Rawlings still makes their top models in the US. I have had way too many gloves to count over the years and the Nokonas are great gloves. But the Italian Primos from the mid 2000's were some of the best gloves I ever used. Best cheap glove IMO are the Domins made down in Mexico I believe.

Agostino Matteucci (22 дня назад)
I had a glove. It was my first glove and it was like and extension of my right hand.. nothing got by me. When i pitched, it was there to protect me.. played first base, outfield, my best friend. I had it rewound twice as the web got a little too soft .. it was my Wonderboy. Alas i put it down one day on the bench to hit some pepper. Someone stole my glove. 40 years later i still miss it.the replacement never felt right.. i guess when you find the right fit, nothing else will do.

after a quick google search i doubt their claim as the last usa made baseball glove . rawlings , glovesmith and ray hobbs also has products marketed as made in the u.s.a. do some baseball nerds know why this is ?

Back in high school there was a guy who had a Nokona glove, but everyone thought it was made overseas based on the name. lol Now 15+ years later I found out it was made in the US. It was a real nice glove too.
