What Pros Wear: Evan Longoria (Cleats, Bat, Glove, Batting Gloves, Guards, Sunglasses)
Longo’s 11.75 Inch EL3 is also worn by Miguel Cabrera.
Longo recently showed off a new piece recently that you might see next year. Its an EL3 with Superskin, the first we’ve seen Longoria go with the lightweight synthetic material.
We could see any of these three gloves in 2015 but for now Longo is rolling with the original.
Longoria has been hitting missiles with the flame-treated I13 for a while now. The bat is available in both Longo’s old style Louisville as well as the new “Prime” cut. He swings a 33.5 inch, 31.5 ounce, though there is always slight variation in the weight.
And below you can see a more recent bat, which shows that Longo’s lumber carries the new Slugger branding.
Longoria has been mixing up his Franklins this year, even wearing a yellow version with the Tampa Bay hypothetical “throwbacks.”
These are my favorite though. Rays have some of my favorite jerseys in sports and these Franklin CFX Pros match up perfectly with the threads.
New Balance has been treating Longoria like royalty since he made the switch from Nike in 2013. He’s worn two different exclusives recently, both NB 3000s.
Here’s an in-depth look at both thanks to New Balance (plus a bonus look at Longo’s trainers):
Both are exlusive, but which do you prefer?
Available not only in black but other colors, including camo.
Evoshield Elbow Guard in Dark Blue
Unavailable in Longoria’s blue, but there are many colors to choose from.
Pro Hitter in Various Colors
This one is the most popular “guard”-type piece of equipment in the Majors, hands down. There’s probably a handful of guys on each roster that uses it.
