Independence Day (Late Edition) + Giancarlo’s Blacked Out USA Sleeve


via CSS

Part 2 of our Independence Day recap, starting with Giancarlo Stanton’s Blackout USA arm sleeve from Custom Sports Sleeves.

You can get that one here.

Cutters athletes, including SS Jason Martinson with the Syracuse Chiefs (Nats), got hooked up with a nice little spread for the 4th, including the BGs, sleeve and wrist guard.


Soto Customs sent through a shot of K-Rod’s kit for the 4th, including his custom New Balance 4040v3s (though you wouldn’t know it).

Louisville Slugger USA Bat

Michael Rockett, aka @moonbootcustoms, is a former Tigers minor leaguer and current York Revolution outfielder of the Atlantic League. Michael not only plays pro ball, but he’s also a custom artist, and did this bat up for himself, which he used in-game.

Bryce Harper showed off his take on patriotic lumber, a Statue of Liberty bat that had the words “Freedom is Never Given, it is Won.”

Bryce made this statement in his post:

To the soldiers who keep our land safe and free this was going to be for you, to tell the true story of the amazing life that I have growing up in such a beautiful country..This wouldn’t be possible with out the whole military and the efforts and sacrifices they take every single day! I love America and I love the freedom that we have..One day I hope players in the @MLB can express the way they feel and give thanks to everybody that makes our lives possible and safe every single day through bats or cleats or anything to that point..Again thank you and #Oorah ?? And no I will not being using this bat today to respect the rules of @MLB!

Though he said that he wouldn’t use it, we still needed to see it to believe it:

Bryce played nice, swinging his Victus BH137.1 in black/mahogany. (See our post on Bryce’s favorite bats here.)

Miguel Cabrera Trusox 4th of July Cleats

Miggy and Trusox’ 4th rendition… I do like the jerseys, but the hats just didn’t do it for me.  The white front panel is lame in my opinion.  Always is.

Christian Vazquez had a bit of a rough day getting demoted, but this All Star gear is a nice consolation. This stuff is actually available.

Yasiel Puig Nike USA Cleats

Minutiae Customs sent through his work for Yasiel Puig, complete with dual Bald Eagles, which Puig wore yesterday.

Yasiel Puig Muhammad Ali Cleats

Yasiel may have liked what he saw from Minutiae Customs on Michael Lorenzen’s Muhammad Ali Nike 2K Filths, so he had his own version done.

adidas didn’t stop at the cleats (see our post on those) to celebrate the 4th.  They also made up a custom sleeve and BG’s that Carlos Correa rocked, too.

Franklin couldn’t resist getting in on the action with these SICK Powerstrap customs.  Expect to see the Powerstrap style this fall.

I think we’ve officially beaten the 4th of July stuff to death, so here’s a little Red White and Blue breather, the Marucci batting gloves made for David Ortiz’ final All-Star appearance upcoming in San Diego.
