The Rawlings above was pointed out by WPW reader Corey who thinks it was a HOH H-Web with Fastback—you can see the brown laces/red stitching… We’ll keep an eye on this to see if he sticks with it and thanks Corey for the scoop.

We also found this on Brad Mangin’s Instagram (which is a must follow), which looks a whole hell of a lot like a Marucci glove to me, which would make sense consider that’s what Bryce swings:

That’s 100% a Marucci logo clipped on the left  side.

Oh, and he’s also gone back to the old school stirrups:

The Giants color guy Mike Krukow commented on it, saying “He’s going to bring that look back,” and before he could finish his sentence, the play-by-play guy, Duane Kuiper shot him down, “That is not going to happen.”  It’d be cool if he did though.

Lorenzo Cain, also from Mangin’s Instagram, rocking adidas Excelsior Pro BG’s:

Josh Hamilton hitting again a sweet exclusive version of the Franklin CFX Pro, grey with red piping (via FranklinSports on Instagram which needs more followers):

From @pokebsbllequip, Oklahoma/Oklahoma State can agree on one thing:

This is happening:

yankees camo

 

Along with this:

yankees camo cap

 

They’ll be wearing those on May 27.  Click here for the jersey and here for the cap.

A nice gallery of throwback jerseys, and another of “good bad and ugly” on ESPN for Paul Lukas’ “Battle of the Uniforms” that I completely missed out on… Spoiler alert: the Orioles won.

WPW Contributor Robert mentioned to me that Dan Uggla had some nice gear and he was right.  Check out the new-look Nike leather, the first we’ve seen in the infield (See Kemp, McCutchen, Trout):

He’s also wearing a bad ass exclusive version of the Nike Air MVP Pro cleats.

Here’s a great shot of Hyunjin Ryu’s New Balance 3000 cleats:

Which leads me to my next question… What is his protective gear brand?  Those are sweet-looking.  Help?
