Manny Machado, the latest stud call-up in 2012, wears a custom Wilson A200 1786.

Twenty year-old Manny Machado didn’t waste any time announcing his presence last week,  winning AL Co-Player of the week (in only 4 games) with a .375 (6-for-16) batting average, a double, triple, three homers, seven RBI and five runs scored after making his major league debut Aug. 9.

Machado wears an exclusive version of the Wilson A2000 1786 in orange and black, which you can get VERY close to on WilsonCustomGloves.com, but not exact.  The difference is the leather around the web—the inside of the thumb and forefinger connecting to the web on Machado’s glove is orange (as seen in the feature), and the rest of the fingers are black.  With the custom tool, the fingers can either be orange or black, they can’t be both.

Here are the specs for the closest you can get:

LEATHER COLORS

  • Palm – Orange
  • Web – Orange
  • Back Fingers – Orange (The alternative would be to make this black, but you can’t do the half/half like Machado)
  • Thumb Strip – Black
  • Wrist – Orange
  • Super Skin – No

TRIM COLORS

  • Lacing – Black
  • Welting – Orange
  • Binding – Orange

STITCHING COLORS

  • Wilson Back – Black
  • Wilson Front – Orange
  • A2000 – Orange
  • Web Stitching – Orange
  • Shell Stitching – Orange

PERSONALIZATION

  • Name – 305 (Machado puts his native Miami’s area code on the thumb of his A2000)
  • Font Color – Blonde
  • Font Style – block
  • MLB Logo Colors – Royal Blue/White/Red
  • Throwing Hand – Right
  • Stiffness – Traditional
  • Long Laces – No
  • Pro Sleeve™ – No

The Wilson A2000 1786 is also available online in several other non-custom colors.

Manny Machado hasn’t worn sunglasses yet in a game so I don’t have anything to report yet on that, but we have seen him wearing both an Under Armour sweatband on his left forearm, and a Phiten X30 sleeve in all black on his throwing arm (above).  The sweatband is available online but not with the orange logo, and the Phiten sleeve is available as well, just not in all black.

  1. The black on the back is superskin, not black leather. When you make the glove on the custom glove site if you say yes to superskin, you can make the exact glove.

    1. Hey Mitch do you have a photo or some other type of evidence that shows that? It makes a lot of sense but I did as much as I could to determine what it was and that’s what I ended up going with. Please prove me wrong if you can and I’ll be happy to change it.

  2. Can we get Middlebrooks on here?
    Also btw the Little League World Series starts tomorrow if you want to get some of the easton gear on here.

  3. Why do you need proof that it is Super Skin when that is the most likely scenario? It seems to me like the burden of proof should be on you to prove it is leather.

    1. The burden of proof? Who knew there’s a WPW fan on the Supreme Court! Thanks for checking us out!

  4. Could you do a WPW Profile for Carl Crawford?

  6. I think machado switched over to rawlings… Ill see if i can find a pic!

  7. does he flare his glove?

  8. You can tell that it is superskin because the orange leather next to the web goes to the first welting on the index finger.

  9. the glove he uses is a wilson 1787 11.75 model not a 1786 11.5 model that you have, and the pic that you have on the top shows this. you can tell by the leather under the web on the outer part of the glove
