What Pros Wear Update: Miguel Cabrera (Bat, Batting Gloves, Cleats)

If you hadn’t heard, Miguel Cabrera won the Triple Crown last year.  This season he’s making everybody look bad again, already leading the Big Leagues in RBI by double digits and batting average by more than 20 points.  Thanks to Chris Davis’ breakout season, there’s actually some competition in the HR race, but I think we all know where the smart money will be on that race.

Bat

Sam Bat Maple MC1

Nothing changed here (and why would it).  The good news is you can swing the same bat as Miggy.  The bad news is it won’t work as well.

The road colorway (above) was made to commemorate Cabrera’s 2012 season and is exclusive to Cabrera (CORRECTION: Thanks to WPW reader Jack, we found them at HomeRunMonkey.com along with some other sweet colorways you won’t find anywhere else!).  You can find other some more CFX Pro colorways here.  Miggy’s home choice (below), the Neo Classic II is also available in his exact colors.

Cleats

New Balance 2000 Mid and New Balance 3000 Mid in Orange/Grey/Black/White (Away) and Navy/Black/White (Home)

Miggy has gone back and forth between molded (2000 model) and metals (3000 model).  The prevailing attitude in the Bigs these days is that metals are tougher on the body over a 162 game season, with many everyday players going for plastics.  Cabrera’s are exclusive, but there are plenty of colorways available.

Most recently, Miggy has been wearing metals, both home (above) and away (below)

    The picture doesn’t come up right away, but if you scroll through the picture they come up, or if you choose a size and then the color, grey navy orange.

  2. Could you find out what compression sleeve and Franklin bands he’s wearing?

  3. What about his catching glove?

    1. check his player profile under player profiles in the navigation bar
