What (Future) Pros Wear: The Bats of the College World Series (2 of 2)
Rob Refsnyder, the 2012 College World Series Most Outstanding Player and 5th round pick of the Yankees, hit .476 with 2 bombs, 5 RBI and 6 runs in Arizona’s flawless run (5-0) through the tournament. In the College World Series, Refsnyder was seen swinging the red Exogrid you see in his hands, which we could not identify as it is a totally new design that might have been supplied by TPX specifically for the Wildcats’ postseason run. Our guess would be to look for it next year when the 2013 models come out.
Before Refsnyder switched to that bat, he was swinging the TPX Omaha BBCOR BB126 on the left side of the feature. Refsnyder batted .364 on the 2012 season, leading the team in doubles (19), home runs (8), RBI (66), and slugging (.562). The Omaha IS available.
Refsnyder also wore TPX batting gloves. From the images we saw, they look like the TPX BG26 style, and are available (pretty cheap, too) online.
Refsnyder scored the series-clinching run in his Nike Air Huarache 2K4 cleats in black/white. These are available online. Like the South Carolina guys, he also wore an Evoshield leg guard.
Fifth year senior teammate, Bobby Brown, was also a key contributor for the Wildcats in 2012. Seeing his first regular playing time in his college career, Brown made it count, hitting .348 with 59 RBI while slugging .551 on the season. Along with Refsnyder, Brown was named to the CWS All-Tournament Team at DH. Bobby Brown swung the TPX Exogrid 2 BBCOR that you see on the right side of the feature photo. This bat is available online.
As you can see in the feature, Brown is wearing the same gloves as Refsnyder, the TPX BG26 style which we already mentioned are available online at a good value.
Brown’s cleats are the Nike Air Show Elite 2 in black/white, and are also available online.
