What Pros Wear: Ian Desmond (Glove, Sunglasses)

There is a right and wrong way to wear a baseball hat.  Actually a lot of wrong ways.  Flat like a pancake, wrong.  Over the ears, wrong.  Covered in filth, wrong.  The right way, clean, with a natural curve and a little cocked to the side—see examples 1, 2, and 3—that is how a ballplayer wears a hat.  You want to wear it straight without that little cock to the side?  Fine then, but there is no other right way.

Just had to get that off my chest.

Aside from wearing a baseball hat just about as good as you can wear it, Desmond’s got a gorgeous glove too.

Desmond wears the Mizuno GMP61BK you see above.  This beauty is available online.

And a backup (above) Mizuno GMP6 in tan.  Must be nice to have that as a backup!

As for sunglasses, Desmond rarely wears them in-game, but when he does he wears the Oakley Radar Straight Stem in a variety of colors.

These baseball-specific sunglasses are disontinued, sadly, but you can find them on eBay with some luck.
