New for 2017! What a wonderful glove with perennial excellence! The 2017 Wilson A2000 Series is more than just a new year. Wilson has improved on the design while continuing to offer the quality and craftsmanship that one has come to know and expect from the A2000. Since its introduction in 1957, the Wilson A2000 has set the standard for premium ball gloves. With over 55 years of game changing performance, the A2000 only continues to get better and is still one of the most popular glove choices among baseball's top athletes. Wilson has spent decades working with MLB players to refine the A2000 baseball glove so that it outperforms and outlasts all others. The A2000 is made from American Pro Stock Steerhide Leather that is hand selected for its rugged durability. Inside the glove, there is an extremely comfortable Dri-Lex Wrist Lining. Dri-Lex Technology is an ultra-breathable material that transfers moisture away from the skin, keeping your hand cool and dry. Each A2000 model also features the patented Dual-Welting that creates a pre-curved finger design to help maintain the most stable and durable pocket possible. With this particular glove, Wilson has replaced some of the leather on the back of the shell with their proprietary Super Skin material. SuperSkin further reduces the gloves break-in time, repels moisture, repels dirt, and is actually 2X stronger and lighter than actual leather. Unmatched in their feel and performance, all A2000 patterns are endlessly field tested and constantly improved by hundreds of professionals and top amateur players that choose only Wilson Ball Gloves. The result is a glove that breaks in perfectly for hardworking players everywhere. Wilson: Choose Your Glove!

I got this for my 12 year old grandson. Is it too big for him? Is there much difference between an 11.75" and 11.50"?
At 12 years old, he could be ready to use an adult-sized glove like the 2017 Wilson A2000 Super Skin 11.75" Baseball Glove: A20RB171787SS. An 11.75" glove is .25" longer in length than an 11.50" glove.
I'm looking for a glove for my 13 year old son who plays mostly outfield but sometimes infield positions. Is this a good choice that will last him through his high school years?
The 2017 Wilson A2000 Super Skin 11.75" Baseball Glove: A20RB171787SS is actually designed as an infielders glove. If you were looking for a high quality outfielders glove I would recommend taking a look at the 2017 Wilson A2000 12.5" Baseball Glove: A20RB17KP92. This is going to be a very high quality glove that will last your son a very long time. It is also designed for outfielders. I hope this helps!
Can you use this glove for pitching?
Due to the white leather that is featured on this 2017 Wilson A2000 Super Skin 11.75" Baseball Glove (A20RB171787SS), I would imagine that this glove will probably not be allowed for use on the pitcher's mound (umpires may determine that the white leather could provide an unfair advantage for the pitcher since the color of the ball is also white).
I'm 13 years old and looking for an outfield/infield glove. It would mainly be used for outfield. Is this glove good for me?
This 2017 Wilson A2000 Super Skin 11.75" Baseball Glove (A20RB171787SS) will feature an 11.75" length to it which would work for outfield at 13 years old. However, once you get up to high school, you will probably start looking for a 12" - 12.5" mitt if you are still playing outfield/infield at that time (and only wanting to have one glove). If you need something that you will continue using for outfield/infield when you get to high school, I might recommend looking to something a little bigger. A 12", A2000 to view is the Wilson A2000 SuperSkin Series (A20RB15B212SS).
I'm looking for a glove that will break in on time for my fall ball league. Is this a good glove to break in quickly?
The 2017 Wilson A2000 Super Skin 11.75" Baseball Glove: A20RB171787SS will require a full break in period because it is made with high quality, Pro Stock leather. This glove does not come game ready, however, it will be a good quality, long lasting glove.
I was looking to use this glove for middle infield. Would this be a good glove to use. Also, would I be able to break it in by after Christmas.
The 2017 Wilson A2000 Super Skin 11.75" Baseball Glove (A20RB171787SS) would be a good option for a middle infielder. And yes, if you put the time into it you would be able to break in this glove by Christmas. Here is a good video on how to break in a glove - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tEYKRT1SuRU&t=5s
Is this good for 3rd base? I am playing 13u.
The 11.75 inch pattern of the 2017 Wilson A2000 Super Skin 11.75" Baseball Glove: A20RB171787SS makes it a great option for someone playing 3B.
Can a 10 year old use this glove?
I would probably recommend against having a 10 year old use this 2017 Wilson A2000 Super Skin 11.75" Baseball Glove (A20RB171787SS) as it will have a fitting for an adult male hand. I would imagine that this glove would be extremely loose in its fit on a 10 year old hand
Would this be more of an infield or outfield glove?
11.75" is a size generally suited to infielders, particularly shortstop or third base. It could be used in the outfield, but generally sizes greater than 12" are preferred for the outfield.
I am 13 play third and outfield what size do you recommend?
If you wanted one glove for both positions I would recommend the 2017 Wilson A2000 Super Skin 11.75" Baseball Glove (A20RB171787SS).
Son plays short stop and pitcher, can you use this glove to pitch with the grey?
In person, the 2017 Wilson A2000 Super Skin 11.75" Baseball Glove: A20RB171787SS is going to be more white than grey. Since the glove does have white on it he will not be able to pitch with it.
I am 12 years old and have a 6.75 inch hand size. I am wondering what glove size should I go with.
The size of a player's hand doesn't have as much to do with the size of the glove as the position you are playing does. The 2017 Wilson A2000 Super Skin 11.75" Baseball Glove: A20RB171787SS would be ideal for a third baseman.
I am a shortstop, I have used the A2000 G4 SS for three years and been to 2 high school state championships. How hard or different is it to go to a 11.5 to an 11.75?
Most players won't notice much of a difference going from an 11.5" model to an 11.75" model. You may notice some slight differences initially when adjusting to a slightly larger pocket, especially on transfers than happen in the middle infield, but nothing major that most players can't adjust to rather quickly.
Is this glove made in a plain brown or tan?
The 2017 Wilson A2000 Super Skin 11.75" Baseball Glove (A20RB171787SS) is not available in brown or tan.
Is this glove more rounded or is it more elongated? Also does it feel and fit true to size or does it look and feel big?
The 2017 Wilson A2000 Super Skin 11.75" Baseball Glove: A20RB171787SS will be more of a rounded glove than a elongated one because it is typically used on the infield. The 2017 Wilson A2000 Super Skin 11.75" Baseball Glove: A20RB171787SS will also stay true to size.
I'm looking for a Wilson A2000 glove for my 11 year old son. He plays infield (3B) and outfield. What model do you recommend?
At your player's age, I think the 2017 Wilson A2000 Super Skin 11.75" Baseball Glove: A20RB171787SS could work well for both infield and outfield use. The 2017 Wilson A2000 Super Skin 11.75" Baseball Glove: A20RB171787SS will feature a standard fit, so if you feel it mat be a bit loose, you could check out the 2018 Wilson A2000 11.75" Dustin Pedroia Baseball Glove: WTA20RB18DP15GM.
Looking for an A2000 Wilson Glove for a young lady that is left handed playing pitcher and first base. She is around 10 or 11 years old and I promised her a new glove as her mother cannot afford to get her one. What would you recommend for her?
The A2000 fastpitch mitts typically come with a pretty stiff design that is generally not too well-liked by younger players. However, if you wanted an A2000 for a left handed player, I would recommend looking to a different mitt besides this 2017 Wilson A2000 Super Skin 11.75" Baseball Glove (A20RB171787SS) as this mitt is not available for left hand throwers. My suggestion would be 2018 Wilson A2000 12.25" Monica Abbott Fastpitch Softball Glove (WTA20RF18MA14GM). That mitt might be a little large and a little stiff for her at her current age, but it would give her something into which she can grow with time.
Are the X laces double laced?
The 2017 Wilson A2000 Super Skin 11.75" Baseball Glove: A20RB171787SS will feature an I-Web with double X laces.
I was wondering if you know any way I could get something stitched on the glove, preferably any way I could do that through this website. I want to get this glove, but for it to feel more personal to me I want to get something stitched on it. Thank you for the help and information.

With SuperSkin is the break in faster?
A model like the 2017 Wilson A2000 Super Skin 11.75" Baseball Glove: A20RB171787SS should, in theory, break-in quicker as the result of SuperSkin being used on the back of the finger stalls.

A true American icon in the world of sports equipment. This Chicago-based manufacturer of quality gloves began in 1913 as Ashland Manufacturing, which was as a subsidiary of the Wilson & Co. meat company. At one point, the enterprise became known as the Thomas E. Wilson Co., taking the name of an early chief executive. In 1931, the name was changed to Wilson Sporting Goods Co.
