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.
