What Pros Wear: Miguel Cabrera (Glove, Sunglasses)
So I’m finally back to work after a little vacation.
I’m not going to waste much time getting wordy on this one, because I’m sure Miggy’s batting gear is more important to most of you than his fielding. Nevertheless, he’s played a respectable 3rd base this year, currently 6th in the Majors in fielding percentage (.966).
Cabrera wears Evan Longoria’s Wilson A2000 EL3-ST, which is available online. Under his glove, Miggy wears the Franklin Neo Classic II batting glove that he wears to bat. We already know this one is available online.
Miguel Cabrera learned the many functions of the Oakley Radar Range sunglasses he wears when in Spring Training he took a bad hop off a line drive straight to his orbital bone. Not only do they protect from the sun’s glare, but the sunglasses deflected the ball away from his eye, resulting in a small fracture instead of a much more serious injury. The glasses may have saved his season.
You can create Miggy’s glasses at Oakley’s custom builder online with the following specs:
Frame: Pearl White (Straight Stem)
