A2K glove is Better for its Construction and Durability.
The three times crafting gives it more durability and allows it to last longer than the A2000. … It has more softening features that are better than the Wilson A2000 glove.
Most major leaguers get at least two new gloves each spring — for free. Players use spring-training games to determine which glove they will use in the regular season and which will be their backup if their “gamer” breaks. Gloves that don’t make the cut are usually given away or signed and donated to charity auctions.
Yes, a glove can be too soft. If you son played 1B or OF (or was 10 or under), I wouldn’t be that worried. But in general middle IF’s like harder (and smaller) gloves so that they can quickly get the ball out of their gloves.
The two most popular Rawlings leather types for MLB gloves are Heart of the Hide and Pro Preferred leather. Pro Preferred is the more expensive option. The leather tends to be thicker, but softer than Heart of the Hide leather. Heart of the Hide is thinner, but a little more firm than Pro Preferred.
Have you tried the glove steamer at your local Scheels? It breaks in your new baseball/softball glove in minutes!
Steaming your glove will soften it, but will also make it less durable. Players also tend to find that steamed leather fails to hold its shape, continuing to break in until it becomes almost too soft to use.
Vaseline is another substance you can use to break in your glove. Vaseline contains various mineral oils and moisturisers that are effective leather softeners. In addition, Vaseline is useful for sealing and protecting your glove from drying out in hot environments and from exposure to dirt and dust.

SSK Ikigai glove
Fernando Tatis Jr.’s glove is simple yet beautiful. He uses an 11.5″ SSK Ikigai glove with a one-piece web in an all blonde with black lace color combo. He brings Under Armour Harper 3 cleats and Epic batting gloves. Tatis swings a Rawlings MY13 ash bat at the dish.
Javy Baez’s glove is always a sight to see. Baez has chosen the up and coming brand SSK. He has switched through multiple gloves throughout his career. He has used blonde, black, blue, and red gloves with one-piece and I-webs that have even been paired with mesh.
They haven’t made a Wilson glove in the USA since the early 90s (I believe) Japan made wilsons are either pro issued or before 2006 I believe.. When they originally first switched to Vietnam the glove quality was awful but is now very nice.. A2ks and pro issues are still made in Japan.
I really love the tobacco tanned leather from the Joe mitts. They have that old-time feel and look. Nokona gloves have a wonderful history of handcrafted mitts produced in the USA since 1934. They produce some of the best gloves for both beginner and advanced player.
Popular glove models the pros wear usually cost consumers anywhere from $200 to $500. Perhaps surprisingly, very few Major League Baseball players wear gloves that are custom-made specifically for them.
