What a solid game last night. It may be because I am trying to pump out as much content as humanly possible before the game ends, but don’t All-Star Games fly by? I wish they’d play two! So fun to watch. I swear I gasped at every pitch, just watching the movement and velo that every single one of those pitchers brings. It is legitimately frightening to see it from that top view. Jansen, Kimbrel, Sale, Miller, Scherzer, Scherzer’s grunts: all quite unsettling for a hitter. Except if you’re Robbie Cano. Robbie laughs, flips a Wade Davis 3-foot curveball off the marquee while blowing a bubble, then drives off in a Z06. He is a bad man.
None of this has anything to do with the Futures Game, though. I unfortunately didn’t catch this game—too much content—but lets take a look.
Baseball’s #1 prospect Yoan Moncada, in his second consecutive Futures Game, wore custom Yard cleats by Nomad Customs with his own logo on them. Minor Leaguers have their own logos now?
Also notice some new Under Armour Yard batting gloves, which we haven’t seen yet. Unless the release cadence has changed, these should be out in August, or maybe for playoffs. If you have any info on them let us know @whatproswear.
Not only do minor leaguers have logos, but they have mid-game wardrobe changes, too? This older Spine model customized by SR Customs are also Moncada’s and at some point during the night, he changed.
Custom Cubans for @ymoncada19 to rock in the MLB All-Star Futures game in Miami this weekend.

Touching a hundo makes anything look cool, and Moncada’s White Sox teammate Michael Kopech made these adidas Boost Icon 3 “New York City” from adidas’ “Legends Pack” look as good as they’ll ever look. You can shop the entire collection here (I’m a much bigger fan of “Atlanta” and “Miami”).
Mets #1 prospect Amed Rosario’s 4040v3s by Soles by Sir had a really nice Dominican design, and these take the WPW award for best cleats at the Futures Game.
The toes say “Don’t Be Surprised, Be Ready.”
I like that.
Also notice the Mizuno piece. Mizuno leather just glows.
The first game-action the Trout 4 ASG chrome cleats saw was in the Futures Game, on the feet of Marlins top 3B prospect Brian Anderson. Its most likely a minor league rule being enforced, but notice all the pants up? And notice how good the cleats look!?! Drop the bell-bottoms, MLB! These will be available soon at this link.
You can tell just by looking at Nats #1 prospect Victor Robles’ feet that he’s fast. The Afterburner 4s help.
No, these are not a new adidas cleat, these are Flo Rida’s shoes. And that is the end of this post.
