Since its launch in 2013, the Wilson Glove of the Month program has evolved into a constant waiting period: waiting for the next model to be announced. Since launching BallGlovesOnline.com, I can say that I have reported on every GOTM model before any other website has. Check back every month to view the latest Glove of the Month, including links to buy for competitive prices, real pictures showing every feature of the glove, and information regarding the glove, from pattern, colors, and special features.

Wilson Glove of the Month March 2019: Wilson A2000 OT6 with Superskin and (!) Snakeskin

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.

The GOTM March is a 12.75 Wilsom A2000 OT6 in a red, gray, and white colorway. The back is a mixture of Superskin, Wilson’s own lightweight but ultra durable material, and Snakeskin, textured leather that looks sweet and feels dope, too.

Wilson rarely releases an outfield Glove of the Month, so if you’re looking to grab an amazing limited edition mitt for the outgrass, pick up the GOTM March 2019 at your local Glove of the Month dealer.

Wilson Glove of the Month February 2019

It’s been over a year since Wilson released its first snakeskin mitt as the GOTM September 2017, but the texture has once again made an appearance on the Wilson Glove of the Month February 2019.

And after an all-red glove was released as the GOTM January 2019, re is once again a prominent color on this month’s Glove of the Month along with black and white.

Officially, the GOTM February 2019 is an 11.5″ Wilson A2000 1786 with red Super Skin and black snakeskin finger strips and web. It’s a glove practically built for a shortstop with some swagger.

It’s a completely unique glove, and that’s the awesome thing about it. So, if you’re looking for a something cool with three (!) different textures, check out your local GOTM dealer and pick one up.

Wilson Glove of the Month January 2019: Ozzie Albies’ Wilson A2K 1786

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!

Wilson Glove of the Month January 2019
@wilsonballglove

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.

Wilson Glove of the Month January 2018: Wilson A2000 1716

Ever since Jose Altuve first debuted a 1716 pattern glove, it’s been the subject of fascination for us and the glove community at large due to its unique pattern and webbing.

And now it is no longer a fascination from a distance, as Wilson has made this distinct pattern available as the Glove of the Month January 2019.

Wilson Glove of the Month January 2018 2

It’s an 11.5″ glove with a medium depth pocket, perfect for middle infielders. And with a blonde, white, and black colorway, it’s a clean model for any second basemen or shortstop.

To get one, however, you can’t simply buy it online. You must go to your local Glove of the Month dealer, which can be found here, due to Wilson’s rules on their monthly limited edition gloves.

Wilson Glove of the Month December 2017 – Wilson A2000 1787SS

The Wilson Glove of the Month December 2017 is one of few truly custom gloves currently available, featuring a bold colorway, new gray Super Skin, and an 11.75″ Pattern.

Its overall features, including its pattern construction and specifications, also make it an excellent glove to take to either shortstop (go to section) or third base (go to section).

Wilson Glove of the Month December 2017

For Shortstops:

  • 1787 Pattern: Want some extra reach for shortstop? Look no further than the 1787 – its 11.75″ length, flat shape, and medium pocket depth are perfect for you.
  • 11.75″ Length: Finally reach those tough grounders in the hole with the added reach, as compared to an 11.5″ glove, this length provides.
  • Medium Pocket: You get the best of speed and security with this pocket depth, making both transfers and secure catches easy.
  • Black, Gray, and White Colorway: This is certainly an interesting design (and one that will surely stand out in the field), but it does look pretty sweet, too.
  • Gray Superskin: This newer color of Superskin lowers the weight (therefore making it more controllable) and increases the strength of an already high quality mitt.
  • Pro Stock Leather: Wilson’s most famous leather, together with their other top-notch materials and craftsmanship, makes the GOTM December a durable mitt.

Overall, you will love the Wilson Glove of the Month December 2017 is you, first of all, like its design, but also want extra reach and a bit more catch security (at the slight expense of transfer time) at shortstop.

For Third Basemen

  • 1787 Pattern: This pattern will supply optimal control at third base, all while maintaining a solid length, pocket depth, and structure for the hot control.
  • 11.75″ Length: Although slightly shorter than 12″ (our favorite size for 3B), you’ll still excel at third because of the greater control you will have.
  • Medium Pocket: Quick transfers are important at third base, and this pocket depth allows you to make these swift transitions without sacrificing much catch security.
  • Black, Gray, and White Colorway: This is certainly an interesting design (and one that will surely stand out in the field), but it does look pretty sweet, too.
  • Gray Superskin: You’ll love the weight-saving, strength-increasing, and more controllable nature of this Gray Superskin when fielding hot shots at the hot corner.
  • Pro Stock Leather: You need a durable glove at third base, and Wilson’s most famous leather, top-notch materials and craftsmanship make the GOTM just that.

You’ll like the Wilson Glove of the Month December 2017 if you want to stand out in the field – not only in looks, but also when you field impossible grounders, get the ball out quickly, and throw the runner out at first – at the hot corner.

Wilson Glove of the Month December 2017

Whether you’re interested in buying the Wilson Glove of the Month December 2017 for shortstop or third base, you’ll have to make a trip to your local Glove of the Month Dealer (this glove is not available online).

It will cost about $279.99 (a slight premium over the $259.99 stock price of A2000’s), but it is a limited edition glove and will cost a bit more than stock gloves. And because it is a limited edition glove, you should buy it before quantities run out.

Wilson Glove of the Month November 2017: Jameson Taillon’s Glove

It was May 4th when Jameson Taillon, a right-handed pitcher for the Pittsburgh Pirates, was unofficially diagnosed with testicular cancer. He had his surgery a few days later and expunged the tumor from his body, and just five weeks later he was taking the mound against the Colorado Rockies in front of an especially high-spirited crowd.

The young hurler pitched five scoreless innings against the potent Rocky Mountain offense on June 12th, his first official MLB start after returning from treatment. A few months after making that brilliant start, Taillon has teamed up with Wilson to help others affected by cancer.

Wilson Glove of the Month November 2017

This aforementioned project is the Wilson Glove of the Month November, an exact replica of Jameson Taillon’s Wilson A2K D33. It has three redeeming qualities: an excellent Vintage Tan colorway, a great pitcher’s pattern, and a great supporting cause.

This Vintage Tan colorway helps you look good on the mound, while the 11.75” pattern with a Modified Trapeze Loop web hides your grip and helps you field anything that comes your way.

Wilson GOTM November 2017

However, the best aspect of this mitt is that the Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh-Cancer Care receives a portion of the proceeds from this glove. This not only makes you look good and play well on the bump, but also support a worthy cause.

You can buy the Wilson Glove of the Month November at your local Glove of the Month Dealer or on eBay.

Wilson Glove of the Month October: Ender Inciarte’s Custom Wilson A2000 1799

For the first time since March, Wilson went on a tangent from their usual GOTM formula and created the Wilson Glove of the Month October as an outfield mitt.

In fact, the Wilson Glove of the Month October is the Ender Inciarte game model, a 12.75-inch Wilson A2000 1799 in an Atlanta Braves’ themed navy blue and red colorway.

  • In addition to its 12.75” length, the 1799 pattern comes with a deep pocket, flat finger design, and thumb-to-pinky squeeze.
  • Inciarte indeed created this sweet navy and red colorway, but has shied away from using it thus far.
  • As an A2000 model, the Wilson Glove of the Month October comes with top-notch and long-lasting materials.

Note that the Wilson Glove of the Month October is not available through online retailers, only through selected brick-and-mortar store retailers. Find your local GOTM dealer.

The Bottom Line: Despite its limited quantity, I see the Wilson Glove of the Month October as an excellent option for those outfielders looking for a rare bit of flash for their mitt.


More information to know:

  1. More on the 1799 Pattern: Generally regarded as a top-two outfield pattern, the 1799 pattern comes with a wide heel, flat pocket design that is perfect for making all types of catches in the outgrass.

  2. Has Ender Inciarte used this Glove?: Inciarte has teased us a few times about this good-looking glove, yet has stuck with the all-black mitt he has been using for the past few seasons.

  3. More on A2000 Materials: Wilson’s A2000 materials, including their rugged Pro Stock Leather, are renowned for their long-term durability. In addition, each A2000 is sturdily built in the factory with top-notch craftsmanship.

  4. Rarity of GOTM Models: Wilson only makes a few hundred Glove of the Month models and carefully distributes them to certain retailers. Find out the closest retailer to you.
