Things Are Kickin’ Up in the Swag Department


In the last few days DeMarini has made some not-so-subtle hints about a custom bat offering coming this spring.  DeMarini, a Wilson-owned company, hasn’t said much about the details just yet, but we know that the following models will be available:

Available models for customization:

  • 2015 Voodoo -3 BBCOR Baseball
  • 2015 Voodoo -10 2 ¾ Youth Baseball
  • 2015 ONE SlowPitch
  • 2016 Fastpitch (Coming this Spring)

We’ll be in touch with DeMarini tomorrow and I’ll publish any more details I can gather, but you can sign up for notifications and enter to win a custom bat here.

Vanderbilt Nike MVP Pro 2

Instagram user @Jared_Castill0 called Vandy’s new Nike MVP Pro 2 cleats “icy” and I’m not mad about it.

Vapor Trout NIKEiD

Instagram user @BDawson66 sent these in and I don’t know his credentials as a ballplayer but his kick game is devastating.  Trout NIKEiD’s available.

Oregon Nike Hyperfuse Batting Gloves

Oregon SS Mark Karaviotis (@MKaraviotis_24) makes WPW history with the FIRST EVER SELFIE PUBLISHED HERE.  As selfies go its one of the best I’ve seen.  Oregon’s new Nike Vapor Elite Pro batting gloves.  Karaviotis says he likes them because they’re lightweight.

Karaviotis threw this up on his own page in case you weren’t already jealous enough:

Illinois Gear

Illinois IF/OF David Kerian (@DKerian12) sent this in of his 2015 tools, including the Huarache Pro, the DeMarini CF7, and the Nike gloves we’re seeing throughout the country.

St. John's Rawlings Gear

St. John’s P and WPW ambassador Alex Katz sent in his battery-mates armor for the year, the 950x set from Rawlings.

Yadier Molina Rawlings Gear

I should also mention that I noticed Yadier Molina’s leather chest protector is also available right now.

Brett Lawrie's Kyrie 1 Turfs Brett Lawrie's Custom Vapor Trout Cleats

Top: Brett Lawrie showed off his Kyrie 1 NIKEiD’s which he says he’ll be using for turfs this year.  I was surprised to hear that, but others have said its not that unusual for guys to be wearing basketball shoes on turf these days.

Bottom: Lawrie’s Trout NIKEiD’s.

Penn State Nike Batting Gloves Washington State Nike Batting Gloves Minnesota Golden Gophers Batting Gloves

More Nike BG’s from their respective schools.  Note: Penn State’s chest selfie doesn’t qualify as a selfie I don’t think.  (Thanks @Traxler_23, @Jake_Mulholland, and @ReidFrazier for the photos)

3n2 southern 2

Ryan Flynn (@ryan_flynn9) of Southern University out of Louisiana sent in these 3n2 Viper cleats customized for the Jaguars.  Honestly I’d love to see how the full uni looks but I think they look pretty tight.
