Wilson is the official mitt of the MLB!

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 utilized. 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. Wilson: Peerless In Performance!

This 1617 Wilson A2K First Base Mitt (WTA2KRB181617) features a large 12.50-inch pattern, a double horizontal bar web, and an index finger pad for extra protection. Due to the size and construction of the 1617 pattern, this model is Wilson's largest first base mitt. Make your next snag at first base in style and order one of these Wilson A2K mitts today with free shipping and our unreal 100 Day Love Your Glove Guarantee.

Trying to understand more about the break in process. Wilson says this is a single break glove. Can this be broken in so it’s a double break rather than a single break?
James Negron
Based on the heel design of the Wilson A2K 12.5" First Base Mitt: WTA2KRB181617 it would be a single break glove. Unfortunately there is no way to change that.
What's the best way to break in the glove?
There are many ways to break in the Wilson A2K 12.5" First Base Mitt: WTA2KRB181617. The safest route, as well as the longest, would be to use glove oil/conditioner to help lather up the leather shell and then play catch as much as possible. One can also use a mallet or ball to hit the leather shell to help soften it up. Although this method takes longer to get the mitt game ready, it is also the safest method to ensure the longevity of the mitt.
Do you recommend the steam treatment for breaking in a glove?
The JustGloves Trusted Glove Prep Service will definitely soften up a stiff glove like this Wilson A2K 12.5" First Base Mitt: WTA2KRB181617. It should make the break in process a little easier.
