Rawlings Heart of the Hide PRO303 Pattern in Neon Green/Black

I had my teammate and SF Giants fan call this the “best glove in the game.”  This cannot be true.  What happens when it runs out of batteries?

I much prefer this one, which Yoenis was working in during Spring Training:

And this one, too, which Yo had been using for the first part of the season:

Which one do you prefer?  Just so I know I’m not crazy.

Note: You can now get a lower tier of Rawlings glove, the Gamer, in a very similar colorway to Cespedes’ neon.  Check it out here.


Chandler DTM7C Maple 34.5/32-32.5

Yo most famously swung a Chandler during the 2013 HR Derby in which he beat Bryce Harper, who was also swinging Chandler.  The DTM7C is a custom cut for Yoenis that you can get a great look at in the feature gallery.  Shop Chandler bats here.


NIKEiD Huarache Pro Mid in A’s Colors


Oakley Fast Jacket XL in Custom Colors

Cespedes Oakley sunglasses are exclusive, with Jade Iridium lenses, green ear socks, and a silver “Switchlock,” but you can build your own pair on Oakley’s custom builder.

 Batting Gloves

Cutters Prime Command in Various Colors

Cespedes gets the hook-up from Cutters with a host of different Prime Command colorways to choose from.  You can see three of them in the photos in this post, and that is probably only half of them.

Yoenis’ Cutters aren’t available online but Eastbay at the above link has some wild colors.  They actually sell a “Yin Yang” version which has the reverse colors on each hand.  You can also customize yours like Yo on Cutters’ custom builder (though the link was not working when we checked).

Hitting Aid


Cespedes is one of hundreds of Big Leaguers that wear one of these to prevent the hitter from “choking” the bat (holding it too deep in your hands and not in your fingers).  They’re available just like Yo’s.


Evoshield Leg Guard in Green & A’s Digi Camo

Yoenis has worn both a green and digi camo version of this guard.  You can get a good look at the digi camo version in the photo above, which is available online.

Custom Benik Baserunning Wrist/Finger Guards

Cespedes has a very peculiar setup, including an oven-mitt-style guard on the left hand to protect the fingers and what looks like a W-106B wrist guard that Yoenis seems to HOLD (not wear) while on base.  Our research showed him holding it every time on base.  Its definitely an interesting way to go about it and I’m not sure Benik would recommend it, but Yo makes his own rules.  The W-106B is available online, but the other one is custom.

    I have actually met the co-owner of Chandler Bats–the company is maybe 30-40 min. from where I live. These guys are extremely passionate about what they do, and the bats are pretty awesome….I only got to use a bat for a little bit, but it just felt great, looked great, and seemed like it could take a beating, too. The co-owner guy told me a story of how Pudge Rodriguez’s son started swinging a Chandler and Pudge soon realized his son was using better wood than he was. :P Really quality products these guys are making–and I don’t think they’re stopping there; I’ve heard some of the new ideas they’re coming up with and they sound really sweet. I really think Chandler Bats is going to be the newest big bat company in the Major Leagues before too long….

      This is about the most obvious “inside job” comment I’ve ever seen. It’s not that I care, it’s just funny is all.

    Lately he has been using the Cutters All Leather batting gloves in all white. The colors are only available through the BYOG system with Cutters. Obviously he did not wear them in the Derby though.

    Earlier in the season and at the home run derby he has a grip on his bat, was just wondering what grip that was
