MVP Jose Altuve, second baseman of the Houston Astros, gives What Pros Wear a locker tour of his glove, bat, and cleats. He also offers a little insight into the music he likes, and you may be surprised to hear what Jose likes. (Oh and my bad for dropping an […]

We caught up with the Astros in West Palm Beach as they begin their defense of the AL West crown. We saw new leather from their star-studded infield, some pretty footwear (including PEs from George Springer), and a behind the scenes look at an Evoshield fitting, as well. First up […]
