Player Profile: Giancarlo Stanton

Giancarlo Stanton is hitting MOONSHOTS with a cherry Marucci and Nike Diamond Elite Pro batting gloves.

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.

Screenshot from MLB.tv.

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.

Hitting another rocket into the left field seats. You can also see the white gloves here. MLB.tv.

On his feet, Stanton wears a black/white/orange version of the Nike Diamond Elite Fly.  These are also available online.

Stanton also wears the popular Evoshield elbow guard, like Longoria and Pedroia.  This is 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.

Giancarlo Stanton glove model, giancarlo stanton sunglasses, rawlings pro-preferred h-web, oakley radar
Giancarlo Stanton wears a custom Rawlings H-Web and Oakley Radar Range.

Giancarlo Stanton is not known for his glove,  but he has an absolute cannon.  In the next few years, he will get a reputation like Ichiro’s in baserunner’s minds, where guys are thinking twice about tagging up or going first-to-third on a single.  He might even get a reputation among cut-off men—just ask Logan Morrison.

Stanton wears a custom Rawlings, and as far as we know its a Pro Preferred H-Web (302 model) in all black.  I did my best photoshopping to try to give it the right look, because there is no glove exactly like it.  Stanton’s also has the Fastback finger slot like in the feature, but also has that piece of leather that outlines the finger.  Even though he has the Fastback, Giancarlo doesn’t use it.  He actually looks like he doesn’t even put his index finger in that slot.  Like a lot of outfielders, he puts his pinky and ring finger in the pinky slot, and slides the rest of his fingers over one slot.  I play center field, and I’ve tried that way—it gives you the ability to close the glove with more force over the ball, and I could see some guys thinking it gives you more control.  It’s definitely an interesting thing to try.

Stanton’s sunglasses are the most popular model we’ve seen, the Oakley Radar.  Stanton’s sunglasses have the “Range” style lenses.  He has black frames, Positive Red Iridium lenses, white ear socks, and polished chrome icons.

These are available, but you have to use the Oakley Custom Builder.

      I thought the same thing too since Phiten is one of the “official companies” for MLB. Esdras Delis and another person named Michael both said it’s a CSS (Custom Sports Sleeves) sleeve, with Michael saying it’s confirmed that he uses it; I haven’t found a link supporting that claim as of yet. The Vols Orange color looks like it’s the exact same color as the one Stanton wears, so I ordered one just for the hell of it.

    Got the CSS sleeve yesterday in Vols Orange, and I can say with almost 100% certainty that Stanton wears a customized CSS sleeve. The “CSS Font” on my sleeve is the exact same as the Stanton’s number (27) is on his sleeve.

    They also work amazingly well; I had Tommy John surgery after busting my elbow pitching for University of Miami, and this thing takes away any and all pain.

    Looking as badass as Stanton does with the sleeve is one thing, but having no pain is way worth it.

    I think I saw the Under Armour logo on the sleeve during a game last week.

      You more than likely saw the CSS Font that read “27″ somewhat spaced apart. That’s the sleeve he’s been using since the whole “orange compression sleeve” mystery began.

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