Paul Goldschmidt has been getting a lot of love lately so if there’s enough room WPW is just going to hop on the bandwagon and fire up a profile for one of the brightest young stars in the game. This guy is the right-handed version of Joey Votto, a Triple Crown contender and the smartest hitter in the clubhouse. This USA Today profile of Goldschmidt shows just what a humble, no-nonsense, hard-working guy he is. An easy guy to root for, Goldschmidt has given Arizona plenty to cheer about.

Unfinished Old Hickory Maple TC1
Paul Goldschmidt has been loyal to Old Hick for years now, swinging the Maple TC1. Goldy’s lumber is an unfinished thin-handle, large-barreled 34 inch/32 oz. The model is available at the above link, just not with Goldschmidt’s unfinished look with a black/transparent logo. You can get that look by customizing one for $10 bucks more. (Thanks to Gonzalo for the tip on the finish of the bat)
@WhatProsWear Correct. We do the TC1 model and also a “Paul Goldschmidt model” PG44 on our site. His gamer is the TC1

Goldschmidt’s DBack teammates nicknamed him “America’s First Baseman” because of his blue collar approach, and went so far as to make t-shirts for him. In terms of gear, he’s WPWs first baseman, too, because all of his stuff is available to the people! Goldy’s red 2K4s are available at the link and in a few other colors as well. These are worn by division rival Matt Kemp as well.
With all the colors available these days, Goldy goes with a simple black Evoshield Wrist Guard with his number on the inside of the wrist that you can see three photos up. You can’t get the number on the inside of the wrist like Goldschmidt, but you can have your number on the outside (where everybody wants it anyways).
