Brandon Phillips (profile) taking some grounders, possibly with one of his future sweethearts, a custom Wilson A2K 1786. Unless you’re a pro, you can’t customize an A2K, and there aren’t even any stock versions available currently, but you can cook up whatever you want with A2000 leather, or check out the regular A2000 1786s available here.
A look at Miggy’s exclusive Franklin CFX Pros. Some nice custom versions at that link.
I’m on a need to know basis with this Darvish (profile) glove, meaning I need to know ASAP what that is. Let me know.
Joe Nathan rocking the first-seen pair of New Balance 4040v2 trainers. Couldn’t immediately find a close-up of these, but here’s a look at the cleats, which we’ll see later in the post:
Waiting on more details for these, but according to New Balance these should be available August 1. Current 4040s available here.
A nice set of Nike Show x2 sunglasses on Alex Gordon, but more interesting is the Nikken necklace. We’ve never seen these before, but they are available online. It looks like the Nikken company has a crazy portfolio of products including mattresses and “shower systems.” Worth a look.
Bryce’s sunglasses are the UA Phenom, a style that is available in white/grey with orange lenses online.
A better look at McCutchen’s Nike Air Swingman MVP 2 cleats, exclusive for tonight. Also see JJ Hardy’s New Balance 4040v2s. That was an awesome play, too—All Star all-around.
Jose Fernandez (profile) showed he belonged tonight. He’s my favorite new pitcher and he definitely showed out with the gear tonight as well. Check out his custom Wilson A2000 HG12, a glove that is scarcely available online, but also available on Wilson’s glove builder to his exact specifications.
Also see his UA Spine Low, an exclusive version that we looked for online but couldn’t find. The below is all we saw from UA, an All Star pack, and the low version doesn’t seem to jive with Fernandez’ orange and golds. Nevertheless, the Spine is available online, even in an All Star Edition.
