Glove

Rawlings Heart of the Hide PROTT2

Tulo’s is looking much more worn in of late, and he likes it flat as a pancake.

Can anyone chime in her with some professional infielder knowledge as to why he’d like it that flat?  I could see it be better at knocking balls down and possibly make balls to your right easier to handle, but those are guesses.  I’m an outfielder.

Sunglasses

Gargoyle Gamer

These to me are the coolest sunglasses on the planet for a baseball player.  They’re unlike anything else, a throwback to when Ryne Sandberg was the toast of Chicago.

Cleats

Nike Air Huarache Pro Mid

We showed you his teammate’s mock-up, Carlos Gonzalez, but they’re similar to Cargo’s with some aesthetic tweaks.  Tulo’s have some special effects but you can get very close on NIKEiD.com.

Bat

Tucci Pro Select Limited Maple TL-271 in Black

Just  as we’ve seen guys like Jose Bautista join up as a partner with Marucci, Tulowitzki became a part of Tucci Lumber Co. this offseason.  (Pablo Sandoval joined up as well.)  Tulo  swings the TL-271, the same bat that Prince Fielder swings.  His measurements are 34/31.5, on the lighter side for a Big Leaguer.   We asked Tucci why Tulo liked the 271: “Because that model allows us to use heavier wood resulting in a harder bat because the barrel isn’t that big. The heavier the wood, the harder the wood, so by using a smaller diameter bat, it still makes the weight what he wants.”

This was an interesting finding for me as I had only recently heard about this concept, even though its common knowledge in the bat industry.  The 271 is one of the most common models out there and its interesting to note that it is harder wood than thicker models.  This is also true for cupped bats vs. non-cupped.

Tulowitzki’s exact bat model is available via TLBats.com, you just have to do the customizing yourself.

Batting Gloves

Franklin Cold Weather Pro and Nike Diamond Elite Pro (2012 custom version)

In cold weather games, Tulo has been known to wear the Franklin Cold Weather Pro’s to fight the numbness in his hands.

Despite his Nike obligations, these gloves are the Franklin Cold Weather Pro, available online.  Thanks to WPW readers Bryan, Rob, Jack and Peyton for helping me out with this one.

Tulo’s Nike PE’s are his Diamond Elite Pro model from two seasons ago.  You can hunt on eBay at the above link, but those are likely scarce.

You can also see the Jeter wristband, which Tulo is wearing in 2014 to honor his childhood hero and the reason he wears the number 2.  These are straight up collectors items, so you probably won’t find one for less than $500.

    The “Cargo” link shown in the first paragraph is a link to the page of Carlos Beltran; and not Carlos Gonzalez.

    I’ve worn 2 different PROAK2′s (same glove as PROTT2) and it is the most flat pattern available. Most people really dont like it, because there is really no pocket. It makes for easy transfers but most people think it’s too shallow.

Love it, hate it, proof we're wrong? Let the world know.
