What Pros Wear: Bryce Harper (Bat, Batting Gloves, Cleats, Glove, Sunglasses, Guards)
Marucci Custom BH34, Los15, MR24 Low-Density Maple
Our source at Marucci called Bryce Harper a “moving target,” and that’s a very accurate term. We’ve seen him swing Marucci, Chandler, Louisville, and Old Hickory since we’ve been keeping track, but most recently he’s been swinging an unfinished Marucci. He’s ordered his own model, the BH24, Carlos Beltran’s model, the Los15, and the MR24, Ian Desmond‘s favorite Marucci named for Manny Ramirez. The Los15 is available under the old “CB15″ moniker. The others are much harder to find, though eBay can sometimes have them.
Though Bryce has been swinging Marucci lately, he’s still got a place in his heart for his HR Derby sweetheart, as evidenced below:
The Chandler “Manhattan Project” MP1BH, available online.
Under Armour Epic in White/Red and Grey
Both of Bryce’s batting glove colorways are exclusive, but the white/reds are very similar to a pair available at the link above. Bryce has opted to go white trim instead of the red present on the retail version.
Custom Hybrid Under Armour Spine Highlight
As you can see in the mock-up that Bryce posted on Twitter, Harper’s cleats are based off the 2014 Spine Highlight, available at the link above, with tweaks. If you’ve been reading WPW for a while, you know Bryce is pioneering the hybrid metal/MCS cleat, and you can see the metal fronts and plastic back very clearly above.
Rawlings Heart of the Hide PROHARP34 (PRO303 Pattern H-Web)
Before the season it looked like Rawlings had won over Bryce’s loyalties in the field with three custom H-Webs which you can see below.
We featured the red version here:
And also saw Bryce narrowing it down here:
But it looks like Bryce has settled on the black/brown version during the season. The PROHARP34 is a personalized model number, but the glove is a PRO303, which is available online in different colors.
Under Armour Igniter II in Red/Grey
The best look at these is in the first glove shot above where Harper is celebrating with Ryan Zimmerman. These are a new model from UA, available in many colors, but not Bryce’s as far as we know.
Some good looks at the leg guard earlier in the post, and you can get all of these for yourself.
The only questionable one is the compression wrist guard, which you can see in the first batting gloves image. We can’t tell if that’s actually the compression sleeve or something else.
