Inside America’s Last Domestic Manufacturer of Baseball Gloves


My first little league glove was a Team Nakona glove. It was always there for me for those grounders and pop flys

We visited the factory and bought some gloves.

Thanks for posting, I had never heard of that brand. I still have my gloves from little league (Rawlings) and the gloves my dad used when he played semi-pro when I was growing up.

I used my son’s first little league to collect autographs. He has some good ones too.

Milo Hamilton wrote his with “Holy Toledo” down one of the fingers

It might not be much of an endorsement right now, but Ryan Pressly uses Nokona.

There’s a guy here in Houston who makes custom gloves: Bailey Gloves

I assume he just works himself and not like a factory?
