What Pros Wear: Robinson Cano (Bat, Batting Gloves, Cleats, Glove, Sunglasses, Guards)
Spalding loses its biggest customer as Cano moves into a Wilson in Seattle, and its a beaut. According to our contacts at Wilson, Cano loves the Superskin and has implemented it in his 1786 using Wilson’s custom builder. Here’s our article about the Cano/Wilson signing with his EXACT specs to guide in your own custom creation. If you are just looking for a ready-made 1786 Superskin, find that here.
Cano switched over from the Show x2 (different lenses) this year, wearing a navy/white exclusive version, though there are similar colorways available at the above link.
Nike Air Max MVP Elite 3/4 Metal in Black/White/Teal
We were curious to see what Cano might wear having been freed from the shackles of Yankee’s dress code, but Cano has only slightly modified his 2013 Nikes by adding a little teal flair on the soles. These are exclusives, though you can customize your own on NIKEiD.com.
Cano has moved around a little bit in the lumber department, but with Seattle we’ve only seen Sam Bat. Cano has his own signature cut, and its available online. I know that the layers of stick on Cano’s bat make the photo above tough to figure out, but you CAN see a piece of the bat wing, Sam Bat’s trademark. Trust us, we’re professionals.
Such a sick color. Unfortunately, exclusive. He also wears a Navy/White pair that is unavailable, too. COME ON, NIKE! WE CAN’T EVEN GET NAVY?!
Spalding Elbow Guard
You can see it well here from his time with the Yanks. Unfortunately, this one is exclusive to Robby so far as we know.
Robby flirted with Evoshield’s leg guard early in the season but has since gone back to his NY staple, the Cosby brand with the white straps.
Cosby, also seen on A-Rod, wins the award for most archaic website, but they also must make a pretty good shin guard if Robby and Alex are wearing them. This is available by phone through the website.
ProHitter in White
Cano also wears a ProHitter hitting aid on his thumb to keep the bat in his fingertips and maximize whip. These are worn by hundreds of Major League hitters and are very available.
Who isn’t wearing one of these?
