What Pros Wear: Giancarlo Stanton (Bat, Batting Gloves, Cleats, Guard)
Giancarlo Stanton has stupid power. As a right-handed hitter, Stanton belongs in the same company as guys like A-Rod, Bautista, and Pujols, and Cabrera—and keep in mind, Stanton is 22 YEARS OLD!!! He’s not even going to hit his “prime” for another 5 years! Stanton slugged his way into legendary company with his month of May, with only Joe Dimaggio putting up numbers like Stanton’s at such a young age.
He also broke his own scoreboard—off of a guy who debuted in the MLB three years BEFORE STANTON WAS BORN!
Giancarlo Stanton, NL Player of the Month of May, tied Dan Uggla’s Marlins franchise record of 12 home runs with the cherry Marucci RH6-M, like the bat in the feature. This bat IS available online, and on Marucci’s site you can even customize the colors.
Stanton wears Nike Diamond Elite Pro batting gloves in orange and grey, just like you see in the feature. He seems to have just switched over to these yesterday (6.3.12), as he was wearing white/orange before. The greys that he’s wearing now ARE available, but the white variation is not.
On his feet, Stanton wears a black/white/orange version of the Nike Diamond Elite Fly. These are also available online.
I’m sure you all notice Stanton’s sweet orange sleeve, but I couldn’t find anything on this. Sleeve’s are really difficult to figure out, so if anyone has any intel you’d like to share, please do.
Here are the links:
Marucci RH6-M Bat (Link to Marucci—Stanton swings an all-cherry maple version of the RH6)
Nike Diamond Elite Pro Batting Gloves in grey/orange (or just a general search)
Nike Diamond Elite Fly Cleats (Giancarlo’s are in black/white/orange which should be on the first page of this search)

Giancarlo in the field next! Put A-Rod’s glove post on the backburner because Stanton wouldn’t stop hitting home runs.
