The Wilson A2K is the premier baseball glove from Wilson. This is the one top players turn to when they want a long lasting glove that breaks in without breaking down. These models are meticulously crafted and constructed with a focus on durability and shaping. Made up of Pro Stock Select Leather, the best ball glove leather out there, the A2K only uses the top 5% of Wilson's leather for guaranteed consistency and flawlessness. This leads to a stronger pocket and an all around higher quality baseball glove. Adding to the greatness is the fact that master technicians spend three times longer pounding and shaping the A2K by hand for a reduced break-in period. With the combination of the additional shaping and Wilson's Rolled Dual Welting, which is where thin strips of Pro Stock leather are skived thin and rolled, the A2K retains its shape much better over the long haul. Another great feature of the Wilson A2K is the Double Palm Construction. A thin strategically cut piece of leather is placed between the palm liner and outer shell, providing maximum pocket stability and shock resistance. Wilson and their glove technicians are devoted to handcrafting the hardest working gloves in the game. Time and passion are put into every single glove whether it's made for play on an MLB field or your local diamond. It's no surprise that Major League Baseball players choose to use Wilson to get them through a 162 game season. That should be all the proof you need that the Wilson A2K is created with unparalleled craftsmanship.
