He took the MLB by storm, ignited an entire city and helped lead his Los Angeles Dodgers to the NLCS. Now, Yasiel Puig is the cover athlete for the latest issue of Eastbay Fielder’s Choice.

Despite being called up in June, Puig was a factor in both All-Star and Rookie of the Year discussions. He finished with a .319 batting average, 19 home runs and 42 RBIs. Following his arrival, the Dodgers made a historic jump from worst to first, including a 50-game stretch of 42-8.

It feels like the World Series just ended, but pitchers and catchers report early next month. If you’re gearing up for the upcoming baseball season, Fielder’s Choice is a must own. Within its pages, all of the latest and greatest in baseball gear that you need to perform at your highest level when returning to the diamond.

The Nike Air Huarache Pro Mid Metal was Puig’s primary weapon of choice during his sensational rookie season — now you can get a pair of your own. These elite-level cleats bring premium synthetic leather and mesh together on the upper, supported by a cross-strap for form-fitting support as you round the bases.

For turf performance, the New Balance 4040v2 Turf features a RevLite midsole that comes from the brand’s top-of-the-line running technology.

The latest Nike Pro Combat gear, Wilson fielder’s gloves, Evoshield batting gloves, Easton baseball bats and much more can also be found in Fielder’s Choice. Not subscribed? Sign up for your FREE catalog today.
