Miguel Cabrera’s WBC Glove: Custom Wilson A2000 MC24

While paying special attention to players’ gloves during one of the many awesome WBC games, I noticed one glove in particular that caught my eye. It was Miguel Cabrera’s WBC Glove, a glove that is a bit different in its looks from what is typically seen from Cabrera:

As we’ve already seen from guys like Brandon Crawford and Robinson Cano, Miguel Cabrera created a design unlike any of past gloves. As you can somewhat see in the above photo (scroll for more), Miguel Cabrera’s WBC Glove is a mixture of two colors that aren’t seen everyday, whether put together or not: maroon/brick red and yellow gold. While how good the color combination looks is debatable, the design is certainly eye-catching:

The reason for the creation of this colorway is unknown. We bring this up because the main color of the glove, maroon, does not match the color of the Venezuelan flag seen on the thumb. Sure, the yellow gold looks like the yellow on the flag, but after seeing some of the other WBC gloves, expectations pointed to a glove that matches the country’s colors. But, I noticed that Jose Altuve has a glove in the same colorway, too, making me wonder if this was a prior agreed-upon colorway among teammates (and best buds) to color-coordinate one of the best right sides of the infield I have ever seen.

On a last note, there are obvious visual discrepancies between Miggy’s MLB and WBC gloves, but they are constructed of the same pattern, the MC24. As if a inside-thumb stamping that denotes this 12″ pattern with a laced single post wasn’t enough for Cabrera, he even got ‘MC24’ stitched on the outer thumb as well. In addition to the ‘MC24’ stamping, you can see a Venezuelan flag on the thumb to show his country’s pride not only on his uniform, but his glove as well.

Miguel Cabrera’s Glove: Wilson A2000 MC24

The hands-down best hitter in the MLB, Miguel Cabrera, has taken his glove game up a few notches in the last few years. After sticking to simple orange tan designs for most of the start of his career, Miguel Cabrera’s Glove now features a vibrant black, navy, and orange design that perfectly matches the Tigers’ colors:

1st basemen are not particularly known for stylish gloves; Miguel Cabrera is an exception. With his orange, navy blue, and black colorway, Miguel Cabrera’s Glove stands out in a crowd of rather dull first base gloves. Not to mention, but Cabrera’s design could compete with any other pro’s gloves, regardless of position. He absolutely nailed this Tigers-themed colorway.

After using the 2800 pattern for much of his time as a one bagger, Cabrera decided that he wanted his own pattern, something distinct. The result: Wilson and Cabrera came up with a new 1B pattern that matches the 12″ size of the 2800 pattern, but is engineered to have a wider pocket and also comes with a unique laced bar web. Finally, Wilson topped their new concoction off by naming it the MC24 pattern in honor of Cabrera.

Quickly after pictures surfaced of Miguel Cabrera’s Glove, it became a sensation. Players all over the country (not only first basemen) raved about the uniqueness of the web and the gorgeous looks, and Wilson promptly released it as the stock Wilson A2000 MC24. The MC24, which could easily be mistaken for a custom glove, has become the new mitt for first basemen, who like Cabrera, have a little bit of sneaky flare.
