Wilson A2K 1617 1B REG
Wilson A2K mitts are the premier patterns that last longer and look better due to the master craftsmanship of glove guru Shigeaki Aso. As the most highly regarded and premium first base mitts in the business, the A2K models offer both consistency and flawlessness for many seasons. Each glove is beautifully crafted out of the elite Pro Stock Select Leather which is chosen through a detailed sorting process where only the top 5% of Wilson hides are used. On the back of the finger stalls, Wilson continues to utilize their reliable rolled dual welting technique that strategically places thin strips of rolled leather which help provide more stability and a better overall pocket formation. Another great feature of the Wilson A2K is the Double Palm Construction. A thinly cut piece of leather is placed between the palm liner and the outer shell to deliver maximum pocket stability and additional protection on defense. Wilson and their master glove technicians also spend up to three times longer pounding and shaping the A2K gloves by hand so that you're guaranteed a glove the breaks in quicker without breaking down. Time and passion are put into every single mitt, whether it's made for play on an MLB field or your local sandlot diamond. It's no surprise that Major League Baseball players choose to use Wilson to get them through a 162 game season year after year. That should be all the proof you need that the A2K series is created with unparalleled craftsmanship.
