What customers say about "Key Specs"
Wilson A2000 Baseball Glove Series
  • Beautiful glove. 11yrs old son uses glove at 3rd base. I broke the glove in about 2 weeks with Wilson leather oil and a glove mallet.
  • Got this for my 13U who has had opportunities to catch upper 80's on a regular basis. Last glove was the fantastic A1k.
  • This glove immediately caught my eye with the black and yellow color pattern (Pittsburgh Fan). I tried one on first at a local sporting goods store and loved the short finger stalls, which is worked well for my fat short fingers.
  • All my son wanted for this birthday this year was an A2000. It did not disappoint. It's pretty stiff when it arrives but we also purchased a hot kit and that helped break it in fast. Exceptional quality and a perfect fit for my 9 year old.
  • Excellent glove. It is breaking in very quickly. It is for a 11 yr old and it is working very well. So much better quality than the gloves we saw in local stores.
Rawlings Pro Preferred Glove Series
  • I also played a lot of catch with my buddies which is the best way to get it how you like it. I’ve had it a month and I feel this is by far the best glove I’ve ever owned.
  • I’m currently playing in college and would recommend this glove to everyone!
  • Amazing glove my son loves it, broke it in in less than a week.
  • Really nice golve. Looks better in real life than in the pictures.
  • The very best glove I've used. Nothing but quality, from the leather to the construction.

What customers say about "Features"
Wilson A2000 Baseball Glove Series
  • The wrist strap needed adjustment but otherwise this fit's literally like a glove on my XL size hand.
  • The pocket forms nicely, the lacing and inside palm of the glove are very high quality and hold together nicely even during the rather violent break-in of the glove when you are using a mallet and working the pocket
  • The snap of a hard throw hitting the pocket of this glove is enough to make a game of catch a nightly occurrence. Performs well in games too! Huzzah!
  • Very durable, quality material. Strung well. A little tough to break in, but what you would expect for a quality glove from a reputable maker like Wilson.
  • Great glove! If you’re shopping these gloves you know to expect. They won’t disappoint quality construction and materials.
Rawlings Pro Preferred Glove Series
  • Love the traditional 200 pattern of this glove.
  • Ive had a number of HOH gloves, and I have to say, I really like the leather of the Preferred over the HOH.
  • The close pattern is more of a thumb to pinky, and the glove will definitely take a while to break in
  • The Preferred has a much softer feel and the palm lining is a much better feel.
  • Like all Pro Preferred models, come extremely stiff but breaks in with some effort to form to your hand.
