Wilson is the best selling glove company among recreational players. Wilson Baseball Gloves are divided into many different series, but we will mostly feature two:
A2K: Wilson’s top line, retailing for $360. Features Wilson top 5% leather and the softest liner I have ever felt. A2K’s are so nice to use and are very durable. The 2017 A2K’s (blonde and black) are so nice. You can shop A2K models here.
A2000: Wilson’s most popular line, retailing for $250. A2000’s feature Wilson famous Pro Stock leather that is durable and keeps its shape. Every A2000 I have seen new feel so nice and every used A2000 I have seen has held its shape. Shop A2000 here.
The release of the 2020 Wilson Glove Line means a whole host of fresh A2K models would hit the market, and just like in past years, the Infield models are sweet. Here is our guide to the Wilson A2K Infield Gloves:
The 1786 is an 11.5″ mitt with an I-web and shallow pocket. It’s our favorite middle infield glove for 2020 and is simply an amazing mitt to use at shortstop and/or second base. Get it here.
The 1786SS is the Superskin version of the aforementioned 1786, with the same 11.5″ length with an I-web and shallow pocket. However, it’s bit lighter, which is perfect for middle infielders looking for an easier glove to handle. Buy it here.
The 2020 Wilson A2K 1787 is an 11.75″ mitt that is built for shortstop and third base. It’s listed as one of our favorite gloves for the left side of the infield, as it medium depth pocket is perfect for snagging grounders at short and third. Get it here.
The 1787SS is the Superskin, lighter-in-weight version of the above 1787. If you’re a third basemen or shortstop looking for a lighter glove, the 1787SS is the perfect model for you. Buy it here.
The Matt Chapman game model is simply a customized version of the above 1787 models. If you want a bit of a flashier glove (in orange tan and kelly green) for third or short, the MC26 is the best A2K infield model for you. Get it here.
The 1721 is a 12″ third basemen’s mitt with an H-web, and is Wilson’s best traditional third base mitt. With a deep pocket built for the hot corner, it will snag those hot shots at third. Buy it here.
As Spring Training continues and the MLB season approaches quickly, Wilson released the March rendition of their Glove of the Month. And while there have been many interesting outfield glove releases lately, few compare to this mitt.
Happy New Years to all you Glove Fans! Although it was a bit slow on this website in 2018, it certainly wasn’t slow in the glove world. Here’s to another new year of awesome glove!
We’re only two days into the new year and Wilson has already released an absolutely fire glove: the Glove of the Month January 2019, Ozzie Albies’ Game Model. What a way to start 2019.
It’s an all-red Wilson A2K 1786, and just like when Albies used it, this mitt is going to stand out on the field. It’s a great look for those on a red team who love to look flashy on the diamond.
And although red fades a bit with some heavy use (just check some photos of Albies’ glove at the end of the year), a bit of care goes a long way to preserving the red tint of the glove.
Put simply, this glove is for middle infielders who likes a bit of flash on their mitt. And if that’s you, definitely go to your local Glove of the Month dealer and pick one up. It’s an awesome gamer for 2019.
