Jose Altuve’s ascent to superstardom is all the proof a young player needs to believe in The Dream. Altuve, at 5’5″ 140, did not impress most of the MLB scouts who first saw him play. He could hit, they said, but he was too small. Altuve refused to relent, returning to Astros tryouts even though the team had cut him the previous day. On that day, Altuve squeezed a $15,000 contract out of the Astros—the best $15K that Houston has ever spent.
With his glove and bat, Altuve brought Houston their first-ever World Series title in 2017. Altuve wears some of the flashiest gloves that Wilson has to offer. He has worn Nike and New Balance cleats in his career, and swung a few bat brands including Tucci, Victus, and Sam Bat.
