We asked WPW’s college-level grinders to send us in their pics from glove day a couple of weeks ago. The returns have been bountiful. Here’s the best of the best, starting with University of San Francisco SS @ngiarratano6‘s gorgeous Rawlings H-Web.
Fellow USF middle infielder @afs23 isn’t hurting for glove swag either.
@lgdavis2, 2B for the Ohio State Buckeyes, sent in a couple looks at his new Nike MVP Select, which is a flat-out showstopper. One of the sexiest gloves these eyes have seen.
Davis also showed off OSU’s Huarache Pros for 2016.
Texas was the first school we saw with these babies. It’ll be interesting to see if the gloves have improved from last year’s debut. We had a UNC ballplayer weigh in on the MVP Select gloves just yesterday.
Cal Baptist University infielder @jakegallaway with a Pro Preferred that’s all class. That gold paint is simply decadent.
Some Easton MAKO gloves sent in by these ballers (in order of appearance):
- East Carolina pitcher @joeingle36‘s dual hinge
- Arkansas infielder @mike3bernal‘s single post
- Fresno State infield @_franchise_‘s I-Web
- Minnesota OFer @traxler_23‘s H-web and teammate Alex Boxwell’s trap
Baylor infielder @joshbissonette‘s Wilson A2000.
Army pitcher @MGTrey1‘s self-customized Rawlings complete with American flag patch.
We even got a couple of pro guys to send in some heat:
White Sox prospect Peter Tago sent in his Gloveworks piece, which stays true to his “Petey Pistola” nickname. You can get a better angle on that beautiful web on our Instagram.
Jeff Hoffman (@jeffhoffman23), #9 overall pick in 2014 and one of the big pieces in the Tulo deal, sent us his new SHA|DO two-piece for next year. Ugh. Why do the Rockies always have it so good?!
And lastly, a quick look at UNC’s hat selection for the year:
’cause why have one hat when you can have five?
