Pro Player Insights
They’re not just worn by professionals. They’re designed by them. Each year, Wilson Ball Glove Master Craftsman Shigeaki Aso works with select members of our MLB Advisory Staff players to build a game model glove to their particular specs and style.
The A2000 SuperSkin glove series is the utility player of the Wilson lineup. A versatile mix of Pro Stock Leather and man-made SuperSkin makes the glove stronger, lighter and easier to break in than the all-leather A2000.
The Wilson glove team is constantly refining A2000 Pro Stock patterns and materials with the help of hundreds of MLB players every season. We take that insight and apply it alongside the innovative technology that has made the glove so popular among ballplayers at all levels.
Components like our Pro Stock leather -- identified specifically for ball gloves long before it reaches your hand and expertly-chosen – SuperSkin and Dual Welting help make A2000s the most famous baseball glove and the players’ choice.
