Eric Homser has made a name for himself as one of the premier first basemen in the MLB. The third overall pick in 2008 out of high school pulled in a whopping $6 million signing bonus. Hosmer is a Silver Slugger, a Gold Glover, and an All Star. Hosmer played key roles in the 2015 Kansas City Royals World Series championship as well as the 2017 World Baseball Classic gold medal. Hosmer’s sweet lefty stroke and ability to pick it at first has earned him many accolades and will likely earn him many more in the future.
Hosmer’s gear matches his high level of play. Homser started his career with Under Armour using their cleats and batting gloves. His move to the Padres brought a shift to Adidas for cleats and batting gloves in team colors. At the dish, Hosmer swings Dove Tail or Zinger maple bats with a LizardSkin bat wrap. Hosmer’s glove may be one of the prettiest in the Bigs. Eric Hosmer’s glove pairs those beautiful gold labels with an all blue Rawlings Heart of the Hide DCT first base mitt. Some of his gear can be shopped below.
