Each glove is constructed from the finest materials in the game to give players the confidence to attack every hot-shot ground ball or screaming line drive. Beyond the performance, A2000s offer players an incredibly durable glove that looks like it belongs on a big league diamond. We can’t stress it enough, Wilson A2000s are among the most popular gloves in the world.
Which makes this part even more exciting…
The new Wilson A2000s for 2022 are now available at JustGloves! But wait, before you go running off to pick out your favorite new glove, take a few minutes to enjoy our breakdown of the 2022 Wilson A2000 lineup. In this breakdown, we will discuss what you can expect for the new models, Wilson’s latest glove innovations, and the ins and outs of each glove style. We hope you enjoy it.
2022 Wilson A2000s | What to Expect
The 2022 A2000s have the glove community buzzing with excitement. Given the uneasy state of the world back in 2020, it has been nearly two years since we have gotten to experience a proper launch of new gloves. To celebrate, let’s take a look at the four notable features you can expect when you buy a new 2022 Wilson A2000.
Pro Stock Leather
If you have owned an A2000 in the past, you know the leather quality is second to none. Built from world-class Pro Stock leather, A2000s can outlast lesser gloves. Enjoy the full benefits of the rugged leather build along with the long-lasting shape retention created by the professional-grade leather laces.
Comfort Pro Lining
Treat your hand to one of the most comfortable gloves on the market. Sporting the Comfort Pro Lining, every A2000 showcases a richer, softer feeling liner that molds to your hand over time. The more you use your glove, the more comfortable it will become.
Flat Finger Binding
Each glove is specifically designed with a flatter binding construction to allow players to confidently wear with their index finger outside of the glove. Playing with your index finger out gives players additional glove control and improved freedom when closing their glove.
Rolled Dual Welting
The Rolled Dual Welting of the new A2000s is integrated into the glove’s lining and produces a glove that retains its shape better over time. Couple the Rolled Dual Welting with Pro Stock leather, and it is easy to see why A2000s are considered among the longest-lasting gloves in the sport.
A2000 Glove Innovations
Wilson has maintained their status as a premier glove manufacturer because they refuse to stand pat. They continue to develop and innovate new ideas to elevate their gloves to the next level. Such notable innovations include SuperSkin and Spin Control Technology, which have changed the way we view baseball gloves and softball gloves.
What is Spin Control?
Spin Control is a newer glove feature that will be once again available in 2022. Using the same Pro Stock leather that has helped grow the popularity of the A2000s, Wilson adds a dimpled texture to the palm, fingers, and occasionally the webbing to increase ball control for fielders. This enables players to quickly transfer the ball into their throwing hand to deliver throws on target with the utmost precision. The 2022 Spin Control A2000s will be available for infielders, outfielders, first basemen, and catchers. However, not all A2000s will incorporate Spin Control Technology.
Players no longer have to wait until they are older to enjoy the benefits of a high-end leather glove. Top gloves like the Wilson A2Ks and A2000s are now widely available with a Pedroia Fit. Wilson developed their Pedroia Fit to suit the smaller hands of former Boston Red Sox second baseman Dustin Pedroia. Each glove sports a smaller wrist opening and shorter finger stalls to give younger, smaller players better glove control on the diamond.
As discussed on our blog previously, Wilson’s SuperSkin technology is a game-changer for the way gloves are constructed. While the composition of the material remains a secret, we know that SuperSkin is similar to a basketball's outer skin. This creates a lighter alternative to leather while also proving to be water repellent and twice the tensile strength. Looking at the 2022 gloves, both A2Ks and A2000s have models designed with SuperSkin materials.
