Shane Victorino’s new Nike Road Machine sunglasses:
Not a fan. They are available, however, in Victorino’s red/black.
David Wright swinging a bat we haven’t seen much of, a Louisville Slugger B9 C243:

Its cool to see the different style webs that the Asian players have brought to America. Here is Yu Darvish‘s new one for 2013:

Koji Uehara’s own design:
Prince Fielder does not seem to have an issue filling out a t-shirt:
I read that he found this in a shop in Michigan—couldn’t find it online.

This model is available in Ash and Birch wood, and my guess is that “YB” stands for yellow birch, a wood that is used by some bat companies as an alternative to maple. Here is a link to more info than would ever be necessary on this topic. The model is available and looks like it can be made custom.
Here’s Jayson Werth’s Kaenon Hard Kore sunglasses in Matte Red:
That picture is from last year, but he’s wearing them in Spring, too. Available here.
Alex Gordon wearing the KC blue Evoshield leg guard:
Colors aside from black are now available online, including Gordon’s Royal Blue.
