Matt Harvey was dubbed “The Dark Knight of Gotham” by SI’s Tom Verducci because of his sheer power and nastiness on the mound.

The name is a fitting one.  If his high-90s fastball isn’t scary enough, he’s got a top-to-bottom curveball, power slider, and a changeup that is statistically his best pitch (opponents batting average .122 vs. the change according to Pitch f/x).  Not only is his pitching repertoire sinister, he has the gear to match.

Nike Diamond Elite Pro II in Black with Blue Lacing w/ Custom Two-Piece Solid Web

Harvey follows suit with his ride, too, driving a black 2013 Cadillac Escalade (no, its not a Hybrid like this one).  As you know, these are available, too.
