7 Sexiest Gloves (So Far)

It’s back. We made it. Baseball. Finally. Around this time of year, every time we open up Twitter or Instagram, its something fresh. Its a good time to be a WPW Head. In this post, we’ll focus in on the new and hot gloves we’ve been seeing at Spring Training. These are just a few and we definitely missed plenty. (Let us know what we missed! Comments with valid e-mail on WhatProsWear.com are automatically entered into a monthly gift card giveaway. First winner will be named on Sunday 3/1, so don’t be shy.)

The Sexy List

Fresh off a Gold Glove season at second base, Kolton Wong put together one of the sexiest gloves we have seen in a while. Wong’s Rawlings PRO31 pattern (which can be shopped stock or custom from Dicks Sporting Goods) is eye-popping. Columbia blue and red with those gold labels and accents. Wow. Not only is this going to go perfectly with the Cards blue unis, it also feels distinctly Hawaiian. Looks like it would be right at home on a beach in Wong’s home town of Hilo. Even the stock option at Dick’s is dope.

Matt Kemp is a Swag God. Old school high socks, Nike Alpha Huarache Elite 2 spikes, Oakley shades, and a Rawlings training glove all infused with that South Beach vibe. The training glove is what caught our eye most. Looks like Kemp and Wong had similar inspirations, pairing that light blue and red with the irrepressible heat that comes from gold labels. Kemp took it to the next level with his custom logo on the thumb. While right now, Rawlings doesn’t offer an “outfield trainer”, you could pick up a custom Rawlings 9.5″ infield trainer or any other Rawlings infield model that could serve a similar function.

Change The Game 🖤

We mentioned this in our last post but now we’ve got pics.

2019 AL Batting Champ Tim Anderson will be rocking a Marucci single post with something new from Marucci, dual welting.

This looks like a Marucci clone of his A2000 from years past.

Tim Anderson’s exact model is a one-off for him, but Dick’s Sporting Goods has all the latest offerings from Marucci’s newest glove line.

Baseball is back!

A post shared by Andrew McCutchen (@cutchtwenty2) on

Since we first started in 2012, Andrew McCutchen has had some of the cleanest gear. This glove, though, may be the most eye catching we have ever seen from Cutch. McCutchen looks like he is rocking a PRO6019, which you can customize on Rawlings.com without the gold labels of course. White back, classic Trapeze web, with a red palm and accents is a clean look, especially when paired with Phillies threads.

While flashy is never a bad thing, it’s hard to beat the classics. Nolan Arenado is already one of the greatest 3rd basemen ever. ‘Nado’s 7 for 7 on Gold Gloves to start his career has never been done before by an infielder, and only once by an outfielder (Ichiro, 10 for 10). He’s also the first guy to go 3-times Platinum. These are good reasons not to change gloves. His 12″ Rawlings Heart of the Hide in that classic Timberglaze color never goes out of style.

Home sweet Hohokam. #RootedInOakland

A post shared by Oakland Athletics (@athletics) on

Speaking of Platinum Glovers from El Toro High School in Lake Forest, California, Matt Chapman was spotted with a new glove interest, a Wilson A2K in black with white and green trim. He’s got the initials and jersey number of his Cal State Fullerton teammate, Nick Hurtado, inscribed on the ring finger. Hurtado died of a rare bone cancer in 2013, and Chappy continues to keep his memory alive. Last year, Chappy wore Hurtado’s name and number for Players Weekend.

We’ve asked Wilson for details on this glove, and when we get them we will update here. Until then, shop Chappy’s piping hot game model at Dick’s, which we expect him to put into play this year.

@ronaldacuna13’s new glove is straight 🔥.

A post shared by Major League Life (@majorleaguelife) on

@ronaldacuna13 is rocking Rawlings in Spring Training for the first time, having dropped SSK mid-2019 after a dropped home run robbery. The new piece is fire. We built it to his exact specs on the Rawlings custom builder, just like Acuna did. Get it for $360 at Rawlings.com.

  1. Love this post. Kolton Wong is winning the spring training glove game.

  2. How about Didi Gregorius and his blonde Mizuno pro I’ve seen flashes of in spring training. I think he had it laced in red. Looks amazing.

  3. You couldn’t have a list of Sexiest Gloves without Mike Clevinger’s Sunflower glove. That thing is a beaut!

  4. Love Chapman’s new A2k wish I had the money for one cause that is 🔥

  5. Mookie’s new Wilson is absolute fire 🔥🔥🔥

  6. I’m torn between McCutchen’s and Acuna’s gloves. Both are beauties.

  7. Anderson’s Marucci is pretty, but how do you go against Arenado? Classic look and the dude obviously knows how to use it.

  8. Stripling’s “chicken strip”glove was clean.I think jose abreu’s and Luis Roberts blonde and black snake skin gloves were not too shabby. Would love to have Luis Roberts globe to rome the outfield.
