Marucci DO34 Low Density Maple

David Ortiz has been swinging his signature Marucci DO34 for a few seasons now, a popular model that is available online in both Ash and Maple.  The link above is for Ash, or you can have a Maple custom-made by Marucci.

Batting Gloves

Franklin CFX Pro in Red or Black/Volt

As you can see in the feature, Ortiz wears a set of Franklin CFX Pros that don’t exactly match up with his team colors.  That doesn’t change the fact that they’re fire, and lucky for us, Franklin made a few pairs for the masses.  Pick them up at the “Black/Volt” link above, or check out other colorways here.

He’s been mixing these in occasionally, too:

Unfortunately, these are not available.


New Balance 4040v2 MCS

Ortiz switched out the Reeboks and is now in the NB 4040v2 MCS (plastic).  We’ve seen him wear a white/black with red/volt “N” as well as these volted versions below.  Both are exclusives.

Bat Wraps

Lizard Skin Grips

Ortiz is another high-profile player rocking the Lizard Skin wraps, a new product to the Big Leagues but one that has taken hold (pun intended) very quickly.  You can see a couple different colors in the photos above.  Both are available at the above link.

Elbow Guard

Douglas Brand

Never heard of these guys before.  Ortiz might be the only one wearing them, and their elbow guard is much larger than the ones we’re used to seeing.  Nevertheless, its available at the link above.
