What the Pro Wears: Jacoby Ellsbury (Glove, Sunglasses)
Jacoby Ellsbury claims in the video below that he likes to keep a glove for a few seasons because he likes a well-broken in glove. The glove we’ve seen him playing with the last few years is a custom Rawlings model PRO JE-46 (named for him and his first number, 46).
This glove, not in production, is nowhere to be found other than this eBay auction. If you’ve got that kind of coin lying around, grab the one of a kind. If not, there are very similar gloves out there that are much more affordable. The most similar glove on the market right now is the PRO302-6JB. The black Heart of the Hide leather and Pro H web is identical to Ellsbury’s. The only difference is the PRO302-6JB is a Fastback®, meaning it has a single opening for your index finger, whereas Ellsbury’s glove has a conventional back—-the kind where all of your fingers are visible.
A 2011 Gold Glove Award winner, Ellsbury navigates Fenway’s “Triangle” with wreckless abandon. When the sun is out, Ellsbury rocks the Nike Show X2 sunglasses (see below).
Ellsbury’s shades are red/grey/red with Nike’s “Grey with Orange Flash” lenses, another player exclusive for Jacoby. The shades don’t make an appearance in the video below, but Ellsbury’s speed and aggressiveness do.

Rawlings Heart of the Hide PRO302-6JB (Identical to Ellsbury’s except for Fastback® instead of Ellsbury’s conventional back)
