On April 2, 2021 Wilson Sporting Goods, the world’s leading manufacturer of high performance baseball and softball equipment, dropped its latest version of the Autism Speaks Love The Moment A2000 1786® ball glove as World Autism Month is getting underway. It is the latest product launch in the on-going collaboration between Wilson Baseball and Softball and Autism Speaks.
Since 2019, Wilson and Autism Speaks have worked to create on-field products and promote a message of inclusion, acceptance and understanding for people on the autism spectrum. The lineup of baseball gear highlights Autism Speaks’ signature blue color and Wilson’s Love The Moment message created specifically for this collaboration.
Wilson’s donation this year to Autism Speaks will help to increase advocacy and support; provide reliable information and resources; and advance research into causes and better interventions. With an estimated 1 in 54 children affected by autism, Autism Speaks is dedicated to enhancing lives today and accelerating a spectrum of solutions for tomorrow.
“Autism impacts a great number of people in the U.S., and that includes many of the baseball and softball families that we serve,” said Michael Markovich, Global Commercial Director, Wilson Baseball and Softball. “We know that every person with autism has unique strengths and challenges, and many may feel misunderstood or excluded. We hope that through this partnership with Autism Speaks we can play a part in creating more understanding and acceptance of people with autism.”
“At Autism Speaks, we are committed to fostering kindness in local communities to create a more inclusive world for those on the spectrum,” said Autism Speaks Vice President of Services and Support Valerie Paradiz. “We can’t do that without Wilson’s continued support that helps us meet the diverse needs of people with autism, through every stage of life, so they can reach their full potential”
