Spring Training Sightings: New & Newsworthy Gear

This is pretty self-explanatory so I won’t waste words.  Here’s a little look around Spring Training.

Masahiro Tanaka has been transitioning nicely into American baseball with his new custom Mizuno leather.

Yoenis seen here wearing Cutters new Prime Command batting gloves.  You can get these in standard or custom colors like Yo’s at Cutters’ website.  Also see Eastbay’s Yin and Yang version with inverted colors, which has a really unique A’s colorway and comes with a pair of wristbands.  Great value.

Yoenis is taking some chances with these Rawlings  303 pattern gloves but I much prefer this one to the last one we saw.

Timmy rocking the Nike Mercurial 8.0 shades that we’ve seen throughout Spring.  These are available sparingly across the web.  The 13 year old ‘stache is not.  Lets just pray that thing gives his curveball a little more bite.  The Diamond Collection hat is available.

The 1992 version of Barry Bonds is back in baseball, and here he his rocking a Garmin Forerunner 620 GPS/heart rate monitor/race predictor/watch.  Bonds is known to have taken up cycling and this piece is the Ferrari of the “quantified self” items that are growing in popularity among endurance athletes.  It is available here.

Ian Kinsler is working in his new Nike glove that we featured recently.

Here’s Victor Martinez, hemmed up, showing off his Mizuno 9-Spike Advanced Swagger 2, available here.

Braves prospect Christian Bethancourt wearing a dirty pair of UA Phenom sunglasses.  His colorway looks like an exclusive, but you can get the Phenoms here.

A nice shot of Melky‘s custom Wilson A2000 1799.  Build your own at WilsonCustomGloves.com or shop available colors here.

Jed Lowrie spraying with a pretty nice pair of Easton HS9 batting gloves, the first we’ve seen them.  They are available in multiple colorways including a ‘Murica-inspired version.

A reality show based on the LA Dodgers 2014 clubhouse would be appointment television.  The cast is outrageous.  HBO, E!, somebody get involved.

Looks like Dee Gordon dropped or got dropped from Nike after last season.  He’s in standard issue UA including the UA Yard Mid cleats and batting gloves.  I love the gloves but the cleats, well I think most of us can agree its tough to go from being styled by Nike one year to choosing from UA’s catalog the next.  Nothing against UA but Nike is just in a different class in terms of contract guys.

See what I mean?  (Available in an almost identical colorway.)

Joe Beimel, Mariners reliever, quietly putting Team Jordan on watch with this stockade of Jordan cleats.  We found the top left, the Diamond Cat, available on eBay for $39.99.  Get those here.  The 12s on the right are available right now, and the bottom ones are BCT 2s, not available as cleats (thanks to @ChrisOverholt76).
