The iconic A2000 line from Wilson is back and as great as it’s ever been. These gloves from Wilson have grown into a well-known and reliable line – players that demand the familiarity and quality of these gloves, can rest assured knowing that Wilson has released these gloves with the quality those players expect and then some.
The DP15B is 11.5” in length and is the A2000 game model for MLB 2nd baseman Dustin Pedroia. This glove features Wilson’s H-web pattern and has a double-looped “X”-lacing at the base of the web to keep the pocket extra shallow for quicker transitions. This glove is ideal for the middle-infielder that prefers a snug fit and exceptional feel.
The shell, palm and lacing are composed of Wilson’s high-end Pro Stock leather in a Special Edition “Murdered Out” all black colorway. This leather is one of the highest quality hides Wilson has available for construction and certainly lives up to the A2000 tradition. This glove also features Wilson’s “Top-Shelf Dual Welting”, which takes two strips of leather, placed along the back of the fingers for a quick break-in and long-lasting pocket.
This glove also features the “Pedroia Fit”, which includes longer laces, a tapered hand opening for a snug fit, as well as shorter & narrower finger stalls. The sizing for this glove has a smaller hand in mind, so it will fit tighter than a standard, adult glove. Looking at the inside of the glove, the heel felt has been removed just as Pedroia prefers for an exceptional and consistent feel when fielding.
The hand opening features a conventional, open back with a laced binding. The conventional back allows for extra ventilation, while the laced binding provides a secure and snug fit – keeping the glove in place, even during the toughest plays. Additionally, the inside has been lined with Wilson’s Dri-Lex, moisture-wicking material to keep the leather dry and a comfortable feel.
The high-quality Pro Stock leather used is soft, but durable. The A2000 line will arrive stiff, but due to the construction of the leather and welting, will have a reduced break-in time.
