Rookie 5-tool beast Mike Trout swings an Old Hickory bat and is a menace on the bags in his Nike Air Gamer cleats.

THIS POST HAS BEEN UPDATED HERE.

It should not come as a surprise to anyone that Mike Trout has burst on the scene in his rookie season.  After all, this is a guy who was ranked the #1 prospect in baseball AHEAD of “The Chosen One.”  The Millville, New Jersey native  is hitting .341 as of today (6.15.12), and leading the league in stolen bases with 16 even though he’s only played about 2/3rds of the season.  If he qualified for the batting lead (he’s 7 plate appearances short), Trout would be second to Paul Konerko.  And he’s no slap hitter either.  If he qualified, Trout would also be in the top 10 in the league in slugging as a leadoff hitter.  Everyone else on that list is a middle-of-the-order type power hitter.

Mike Trout swings an Old Hickory J143 with a same paint job as you see in the feature.  Based on what he used in the minors (that’s all we could confirm), he uses a 33.5 inch maple (see photo below).  You can get this exact model on HittersInc.com, which looks like a great source for bats.  It lets you customize the bat entirely.  If you want Trout’s model, choose the following:

  • Black barrel
  • Natural handle
  • Clear dipped handle
  • Silver logo
  • Cup
  • (Not sure weight but you should probably choose that yourself)
  • 33.5 inch

Trout’s batting gloves are the Nike Diamond Elite Pro model in red, and are available all over the place.  We’ve seen these so many times before—most definitely the most popular gloves in the pros.

Trout’s got wheels, too.  He wears Nike Air Gamer cleats, which you can recreate on NIKEiD.  We’ll be updating this for 2013 as soon as the season starts, as it looks like he’ll be wearing a new pair this year.

  1. Trout actually switches his cleats up. Sometimes he wears the Nike Air Huarache 2KFresh, like in the picture that you posted, and sometimes the Nike Gamers. In recent games he was seen mostly in the Gamers, though.

  2. He also wore the Nike Air Huarache 2KFresh in a black/yellow colorway in Triple-A this year.
