Fernando Tatis Jr. has signed with Mizuno Sports.
Fernando Tatis Jr., formerly an SSK glove guy, joins fellow premier defensive shortstops that wear Mizuno gloves, including back-to-back defending NL Gold Glover Nick Ahmed, 5-time Gold Glover Andrelton Simmons, and Didi Gregorius.
Indications are that Fernando Tatis Jr. will wear a glove similar to the one above (filmed at Mizuno’s Haga, Japan pro glove factory).
Its a Mizuno Pro Series GMP2-600R, and while the video shows a one-piece web (the same as Tatis’ old SSK), Tatis has been favoring the stock T-Web with Mizuno.
Tatis’ trust in the stock model is a really good sign for anyone considering a Mizuno Pro model since the leather will be the exact same. Tatis’ glove size is 11.75″ inches.
