Show It Off: St. John’s University 2015

image8

As far as I know, brand reps (Rawlings, Wilson/DeMarini, Slugger, Easton, etc) fight tooth-and-nail for the allegiance of top flight schools like St. John’s.  The reason (besides market share) is that they know D-1 ping is their best chance to get the most lucrative baseball product they sell, metal bats, into the spotlight.

A team like St. John’s has the potential to swing Rawlings alloys all the way to Omaha while the ESPN cameras are rolling, and that’s why this 2015 St. John’s ballclub and CWS contenders like them will always get styled, custom-fitted, and downright spoiled.  Its just good business.

Black Throwback Alex Katz

Thanks to LHP Alex Katz for tugging on the WPW side of the rope and getting these pics over.

Throwbacks just do it for me.  The black/red one above and the powder blue “Johnnies” with the two-tone full body piping are what brings the ladies to the ballpark and I think I speak for all ballplayers when I say that I appreciate the fans.

Also of note is the reflective jersey that glows for the flash of a camera.

Note: That isn’t even all of their jerseys.  I’m told there are 12 sets in total.  12!  How many games are there?!

The dual threat:

St. John's Fitted Hat

If it was up to me I’d wear both.

As far as leather goes, the Rawlings custom shop cut no corners.  Gorgeous team-inspired colors and the St. John’s logo sewn into the thumb of each model.

That last red one is a carbon copy of the Bryce Harper we saw last year.

These gloves are just the kind of thing, if its yours, that you’ve got to display in the mancave for the rest of your days.  Just an American relic.

  1. You should do uva

  2. Hey WPW, I was wondering if you could give me some equipment advice. I’m a smaller freshman SS (with a little 2B) and I use the 11.75 Wilson G5 glove. It is a little too big, and I can wiggle my hand around inside. Should I wear a batting glove under, or would that sacrifice the ability to feel the ball in my glove? Thanks
