Thread Starter 
In keeping with the tradition of past MLB and Baseball postings within this forum. It is time for the 2013 season. Let us keep up with the trends and products the many brands will throw at us this year. So let's follow the past rules just like the last thread and enjoy this year to the fullest.

Checked both of my local Marshalls today and didn't see anything in terms of last years Nike baseball gear that all popped up over the winter. If/when somebody does see a bunch of it popping up please post so we can all grab stuff. Thanks!

I've never had any luck seeing any baseball gear at Marshalls, Ross, and TJ Maxx. Is there a special time when they put baseball stuff out? Or are you just lucky if you find stuff?

Last year around this time they got a bunch of batting gloves and some "PE" catchers equipment that hit all the stores within the same month or so which is what we are referring to. You can find random nike baseball stuff from time to time still at those places but they had a ton of it around this time last year.

Reporting from East Coast NY, Marshalls, and TJMaxx, I have not come across any baseball related items. I have seen some Nike pro combat 2011 undershirts for 18.00 nothing to write home about. Will check the Nike Outlet stores in a couple of days to see if anything new has come in for baseball. Last I checked was a bunch of old Pro Players Compression shirts in Red.

My go-to TJ Maxx (Just oustide of Seattle) got a ton of TB Football gloves last week as well at a few of the mid level Nike Ball gloves........ The stuff is starting to trickle out. I've talked with employees at the Local Ross/TJ Maxx/Marshalls stores and they indicated that they recieve new stuff daily, just keep looking......

FYI ....if your thinking about coppin the nike vapor elite bg's DON'T !!! Save your money. Hands down the worst nike batting glove I ever owned. There so thin and cheap and offer no comfort or grip. They feel like your using a pair of rubber medical gloves!!! Nike needs to step up there game ASAP especially with those prices smh! There cool looking but not worth it just wait til they hit eBay. Just giving you guys my personal view.

Good to know.  They sound like the same quality of last years DE.  I will say that this year,  Nike did the DE's right though.

I got this as a gift, but unfortunately it is the wrong size (XXL) and need an XL. The sleeves are a bit baggy and it hangs at the bottom on me.

Gonna put it out there - anyone want to buy it off me? They are completely out of stock in all colors on Eastbay

If someone was willing to buy it, I did find it on another website with all sizes. Only tried this on once, been hung up in closet since. I would pick up the shipping as well - really like this hoodie, very light and great to wear for workouts.

PM me if interested !

thanks teamswang!!

You guys are lucky you guys even have a DSG around haha. Up here in NorCal, the closest one is down south.
Btw the New Rawlings Pro Flare II (2) pants were just released on baseball express. It's a new stretch material that feels like yoga pants ironically. Same material as the Graphite pants Rawlings came out with last year. Best pants I've worn by far.

Nice I'm looking for a couple new pairs I'll have to try them out. Last time they were a little too short for me but I'll give them a try.

Early Birthday present slated for Monday but came in today.
In all my years of playing I finally gave up the 33'' and went down to 32.5'' I also decreased weight down from a usual 30-31 oz to 29.5oz. Why the drastic change? Well, my repaired right shoulder cannot muster the weight of a heavier bat at the moment so I decided to go down and try it for a season. I read where Tony Gwynn also went down in size to compensate for the later years in his career and it benefited him. Enclosed is a couple of pics of the infamous Baum Bat ordering directly from them. Btw my training Bratt Bat will also come in next week and will post pics of it as well.

Once I saw UPS man coming to my door with this box, I immediately saw the logo as he was approaching the house.


Once I gripped it, I felt natural with the new weight adjustment. This is probably the Rolls Royce of all Composite Bats at the moment.

Amazing bat...something about the feel of Baum bats is just awesome, plus they have serious pop. I have 4 of them in my basement right now for my team to use next year and I go down and swing one every few days just waiting for the season to start. Really nice purchase.


Tulo PE batting gloves have volt accents on Eastbay they look pretty cool.

My closest DSG is about 15 miles from my office but the OPPOSITE way from my drive home so it's way outta the way. Luckily, I have a couple buddies that live right by it.

nice man.. those aint cheap but i hear they last forever.. i remember in college playing against guys that used these things religiously.. i would assume that if you are living in a colder state these bats are golden.

 

do they still use the steel rod in the middle for balance on the baum bats?  i know they are pretty evenly weighted which is probably a good thing for someone that has recently had their shoulder repaired.  

post #25 of 3275
We have had 35-40 game seasons where an entire team used 2 Baum bats and they were still good enough to use at the end of the season...amazing bats.

Happy New Year everyone!  Glad to see the new thread up and running.

 

Nice pickups, those Baum bats are nice but I just can't personally use a composite.  Doesn't have the same feel as wood, plus I hate the shock you get when you get jammed with those.  

 

Couple of ebay finds:

 

http://www.ebay.com/itm/230903652064?ssPageName=STRK:MEBIDX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1426.l2649

 

if anybody want's to simulate having a nike mask on the cheap.

Funny thing I never got the shock when using a Baum. I did with a lot of wood bats but not Baum and I don't use gloves so it hurts double when I swing with wood being thrown at 90+
