SHARE Wilson Gloves New Award Category

Chicago-based Wilson Sporting Goods Co., makers of the iconic A2000 baseball glove, is an official partner of Major League Baseball and “the official glove” of MLB. But it is the Rawlings Co. that has long sponsored the Gold Glove award given to players at each position for fielding excellence.

Now Wilson is about to enter the defensive award category..

Plans are nearing final approval to have Wilson sponsor a “defensive player of the year” award, given at each position in the same way as the Gold Glove award. The Wilson award won’t replace the Rawlings award but instead will be a new, added honor for players.
