One of my favorite things to talk about is my personal equipment – who doesn’t love talking about or showing of nice things that they own?
I recently purchased a new glove as my prior infield glove was from right around 2010 or so. I chose to go with a Todd Frazier model glove from when he was on the White Sox – so this model is a few years old. The reasoning behind my decision is that this glove is 12.25 inches. Most infield gloves are from 11.25 – 11.75 on average. Part of my decision on this glove was the fact the I frequently play both infield and outfield and that I am also involved in several softball leagues which obviously use a larger ball.
Old Hickory Ash Bat
My newest bat is made by Old Hickory bat company and is made from ash. I typically try to avoid purchasing ash as it is less durable and tends to flake over time. However, I am a huge fan of the classic flame-tempered look which can only be rightfully achieved on ash. The bat model I chose has the largest barrel that the manufacturer will make and is very end-loaded.
Old Hickory Maple Bat
My maple bat has been in my arsenal for just about two years now which is an insane lifespan for a wood bat. This sturdy piece of maple that is still a bit end-loaded but more balanced than my ash bat. I typically use this bat for all of my games but keep the ash around in case this maple bat breaks or if I’m in a slump and like to refresh my confidence at the plate.
