Nike took the crown for the most popular brand of catcher’s gear during the 2022 season, with 53% of all starting catchers rocking the swoosh (check out our 2022 Catcher’s Gear report for more). In 2023, Nike is dominating again with top guys like JT Realmuto, Adley Rutschman, and All-Star Will Smith choosing their gear
Smith wears the Nike Diamond Elite chest guard and shins in grey with blue and red outlining. He also has his name embroidered on the padding that sits right under the neck. A classic look that a lot of people would love to get their hands on.
Once upon a time, Nike gear was as exclusive as it gets. Now, you can get Nike Diamond Elite catcher’s gear at DicksSportingGoods.com! Get the chest protector and the leg guards for $300 each, but only available in black.
