My son is 7 years old, 4â€™, and 46lbs. ive been wanting to upgrade my son from the Mizuno 10â€ Prospect. His glove has been used for 3 seasons and is well worked in, maybe a little too soft to stop hard hit balls. I want a glove that will fit and last for a few years and im currently looking at the S200. Will this be a good glove to use at his size and get 3 years plus out of it?
The Nokona Alpha Select Series Baseball Glove: S-200 Youth would certainly be an upgrade from the Mizuno Prospect your player has been using, and offers a great fit for a young player. If he was able to get 3 seasons out of the Prospect, he would be able to get at least that much out of the Nokona Alpha Select Series Baseball Glove: S-200 Youth.
My son is 8 years old and would love a Nokona Alpha S-200. However, he is left handed and that isn't an option. What do you recommend is comparable?
A glove comparable to the Nokona Alpha Select Series Baseball Glove: S-200 Youth is the Nokona X2 Elite 11.25" Youth Baseball Glove: X2-200M. The Nokona X2 Elite 11.25" Youth Baseball Glove: X2-200M is available in a left hand thrower, features the same web type, web pattern, and fit for a youth player. The difference between the two gloves is the leather used to manufacturer the glove. Both leathers are very high quality but the Nokona X2 Elite 11.25" Youth Baseball Glove: X2-200M features Kangaroo leather which is extremely durable yet very lightweight.
I am considering the Nokona Alpha Select Series Baseball Glove (S-200 Youth) for my 9 year old son (3B and pitcher). I am concerned with some of the comments relating to the glove's limited padding. Is the padding adequate?
I would not let the reviews that mention a "lack of padding" scare you from purchasing this Nokona Alpha Select Series Baseball Glove (S-200 Youth). Overall, this S-200 is going to be the best mitt available for a 9 year old player that needs a smaller fitting glove and great leather quality. In my opinion, the palm padding will be adequate. As well, if the ball is consistently being caught in pocket of the mitt (where the palm and webbing meet), the palm padding won't be a factor as the web will be taking most of the impact of the ball.
