Players Weekend Custom Bat Roundup

2017-08-25 22.31.58

The Players Weekend.  The inaugural opportunity (aside from All-Star festivities) for guys to step outside of the MLB standards box and get creative with their equipment and man have they ever! I’ve been looking forward to this weekend ever since it was announced and so far I’ve been pumped with what the players and bat companies have come up with.  Here’s a look at some of the custom bats that have been shown off.

Marucci

Marucci went really strong into team colors while mixing and matching their label / lettering combinations.

Rawlings

Rawlings had a big focus on showing the country that each player represents by using different flags, area codes and color combinations.  Not everyone decided to go in that direction though. Nick Markakis is sporting a custom camo pattern while Eric Hosmer pays tribute to his dad with multiple firefighter references.

Victus

These guys made a huge splash during the MLB All-Star break showing off some sick customs for the Kraken, Gary Sanchez.  For the Players Weekend, they are sending a strong message by innovating and releasing some of the coolest customs we have seen this year.

Louisville has focused on team colors using different shades and color fade to provide a little pop.

Sam Bat

For the most part these guys went all in on repping the different countries of their hitters and they turned out pretty great.

Chandler

It started with the Aaron Judge custom for the Home Run Derby and they haven’t stopped creating their hand painted masterpieces.

Kike had this beauty, but unfortunately MLB denied him from using it in a game.  The custom artwork was done by the rising 16 year old custom sneaker artist @wescustomkicks on Instagram.

Old Hickory

Old Hick went with the same custom for most of their guys this year.  Chuck Nasty showed off his American pride during the All-Star Break and it has moved right into the Players Weekend with the good ole red, white and blue.

Even though he’s injured, that hasn’t stopped Bryce from posting some amazing bats from his major bat companies.
