Player Profile: Alex Rodriguez

A Rod was last seen in the ALCS wearing Nike Diamond Elite Pro II (and I) batting gloves and MVP Elite 3/4 cleats.

A Rod was last seen in the ALCS wearing Nike Diamond Elite Pro II (and I) batting gloves and MVP Elite 3/4 cleats.

Update: 1.21.13

Bat – Louisville Slugger C271L in black (just added, available without the “L”)

Based on the 2nd photo down, A-Rod swings a 34/32.  I assume the “L” has something to do with the handle but would love for someone to step in here and add any info they might know.  The C271 is one of the most popular bats in wood bat leagues around the country so there are plenty available, however, I would recommend going for the “1xx” timber, which is the highest quality wood.

If you look closely, you can see the “C271L” on the barrel. Screenshot from MLB.tv.
Here’s one from the ’09 World Series, when A-Rod drove in 6 runs. From gameusedbats.com.

Leg Guard – Custom Cosby 10″ Batter Guard by Gerry Cosby Sports (just added, looks like its available, just not in his color)

This was quite the hunt.  Cosby Sports is a company I have never heard of but supposedly they have a lengthy list of professional sports teams that they supply for.  They make chairs and guards (very strange).  Nevertheless, A-Rod has been wearing one of these for many years, so it must get the job done.

alex rodriguez glove model, prorv23, alex rodriguez sunglasses, show x1
Alex Rodriguez is still wearing the Rawlings PRORV23.

Update: 6.5.12

Glove – Rawlings PRORV23 (unchanged, not currently available)

I would imagine supplies are limited with this one.

Supplies WERE limited.  They’re sold out.

Sunglasses – Nike Show-x1 in navy blue (changed from Skylon Aceavailable but not in his colors)

The sunglasses A-Rod wears are just like the ones seen in the feature (except if you’re sharp you can probably see my photoshopping work).  However, these are unavailable and the closest you can get to A-Rod’s are probably the navy/grey version of the Show-x1.

I know it’s a short post, but I’ve gotta get down to the bar to watch the Celtics/Heat, people!  I’m going to try to get back here and do a little more updating (namely updating Matt Kemp’s glove thanks to some very keen WPW readers, and adding Giancarlo Stanton’s arm sleeve which another WPW reader came through big-time with).

    Forget about the all navy Show X1 Pro. I just received mine today and they were the same as the normal Gray/Navy Show X1s. Extremely disappointed.

    I have a louisville slugger c271L model bat. And it doesn’t have a cupped end. If you look at Manny Machados marucci, it is the same model. In my opinion the L stands for a no cupped end

  15. George

    can you add a yangervis solarte profile?

    The L in c271L stands for long not a cupped end
