It seems that from the time a baseball player first learns the sport, they become very particular to a certain glove brand. And once they become accustomed to that brand, it’s very hard to change their mind. A Wilson baseball glove is known as one of the very best on the market. Their A2000 series is proof positive of their meticulous craft and remains their most famous glove by Wilson.
Baseball gloves are made from many different types of leather, and for the most long lasting glove with the best fit, you will want to ensure yours is made from 100% leather and not synthetic materials. Wilson A2000 baseball gloves are made from a “Pro-Stock” steer hide leather which is considered to be of highest quality and comes from select cows in Japan that are specifically bred for Wilson baseball gloves.
Wilson understands that baseball is a game of determination, and they have the top MLB players on their advisory staff to help produce their Wilson baseball gloves made to perform well, season after season. Very similar to Wilson’s A2K series, the A2000 series is a slight step below, but remains their most popular brand of baseball gloves with several of the same patterns as A2K.
