Kolten Wong didn’t waste much time shaking that “goat” label, huh?  After getting picked off of first base to end game 4 of the 2013 World Series, Wong has devised a bulletproof plan to avoid that situation.  He simply doesn’t stop at first base anymore.  Wong lets the runts have their singles, he lives on a steady diet of doubles, triples, and game-changing bombs.

Through Game 4 of the NLCS, Wong has 7 playoff hits, all for extra bases, two of which have been game-winning home runs.  He’s also one of the Cardinals leaders in the style department, with some studly gear and the iconic striped stirrups that many Cardinal greats, like Hall of Famer Lou Brock (below), have worn before him.

Here’s a video we did with Kolten.  We asked him about his glove choice and a few other tips you’ll be interested to hear:
