What comes to mind when you hear “Yadi”? Defense? Arm strength? A pitcher’s dream?  Well both of those would be right on the money, but Yadier Molina is much more than that. He is the complete package.  The Silver Slugger winner, second runner up in the 2013 MVP voting and 6 consecutive Gold Glover is known as the best defensive catcher in Major League Baseball but has quietly become one of the best hitters as well. In 2010, Yadier had one of his worst statistical hitting seasons with an average of .262, but he has yet to be under .305 since. He is a must watch player and a web gem waiting to happen (we’ve all seen those absolutely ridiculous back picks to first).

Let’s dive right in to the gear he’s been wearing and we’ll start you off with a bit of “Theft Prevention” for your pleasure.
