WPW On-Field: Tigers vs Angels (Mother’s Day)

trout mothers day

WPW was on-field for Mother’s Day at Angels Stadium, and as you could imagine, the pink was on full blast.  A lot of game-used Mother’s Day stuff is up for auction via MLB to benefit various charities.  As for our run-down, you might want to throw on some sunglasses for this.

Instagram loved Mike Trout’s Trout 3s.


Mike Trout Goes Yard

Trout went deep for the third consecutive day for moms.  Guy is from another planet.

Trout even got a special pair of Nike Show x1 sunglasses for the occasion.

Kole Calhoun autograph

Can this kid at least pretend to be pumped about getting a sig. from a Gold Glover?  Good grief.  Kole Calhoun is so sneaky underrated, too.

Ian Kinsler batting gloves

Ian Kinsler and the Tigers hit back with their own pink barrage.  The Nike MVP batting gloves may have taken the cake as the pinkest pink thing out there.

Miguel Cabrera Sam Bat MC1 Pink Bat 2

Miggy had his Franklin CFX Pros (available in pink) and Sam Bat MC1, which he swung in his first AB.

Later in the game, though, Miggy went back to his standard Sam Bat.

Justin Upton mothers day sleeve

Justin Upton’s adidas Afterburner 4 (Mother’s Day edition is AVAILABLE) went the extra mile with polka dots.  Yep, polka dots made it in an MLB game against all odds.  We liked the personal touch with the arm sleeve, which actually had the names of the mother’s of MLB’s adidas roster.

Stance socks added a great element to everybody’s uni’s.  The transition from grey to pink there is fire, plain and simple.

Justin Verlander Under Armour Cleats 2017

Verlander was rocking them too. You can get those at this link.

Watching Verlander just made me feel like he was from another time.  Just had a certain old school swag to him, though the Under Armour Heater cleats wrapped in pink paisley directly contradicted that entire feel.

Ben Revere Cleats

Ben Revere opted to just wear his regular super fresh custom adidas Afterburner 3 cleats.  Absolutely filth.  I’d wear ’em to church.

Luis Valbuena Tucci and Marucci Bats

It used to be that only Louisville Slugger could make the pink bats for game use, but we saw all companies, including Luis Valbuena’s Tucci MG9 (Marwin Gonzalez), being swung that day.

Ian Kinsler Warstic Bat Mothers Day

Ian Kinsler swings a Warstic IK58 Maple Pro Signature bat.  According to Warstic, this is a 243 model with a modified handle and more balanced feel.

Alex Meyer Pitching

Alex Meyer of the Angels was one of many to be rocking the Nike Air Clippers.

Victor Martinez Swing

Victor Martinez had his own Mizuno Swagger 2s made up by Soto, too.

Miguel Cabrera Wilson Glove 2017

Miggy’s Wilson A2000 MC24 custom was quite nice.  We’re working on details but you can get an MC24 in a Tigers colorway here.  Pop the chain, Miggy.

JD Martinez Wilson Glove 2017

JD Martinez’ 1799 was nice, too.  The 1799 made it onto our buyer’s guide to Wilson’s 2017 line.  Check that out here.

All Star Catchers Gear Mothers Day

Angels back-up catcher Juan Graterol took full advantage of the Mother’s Day start with a pinked out All-Star System 7 set.

Omar Vizquel Stylin

And last but not least, the great Omar Vizquel, suavecito at first base coach.  The Costa Motu sunglasses were only part of the story.

First Base Coach Turfs

Vizquel probably had the sickest shoes on the field with the Trout 3 turfs, which as we noted earlier, you can buy.
