words // Nick Engvall
Having something uniquely your own is something that many athletes often desire. This is why we are constantly seeing player exclusive models of everything from baseball bats to baseball cleats. Brands will offer their athletes goods in team colors, or have custom lettering stitched on to give them something completely unique.
Koji Uehara of the Baltimore Orioles gets a bit more detail worked into his player exclusive Nike baseball glove. On top of having his name stitched into the glove, he also has the flag of his native country of Japan stitched, as well as a silhouette of himself worked into the webbing of the glove. The silhouette is an outline of Koji’s delivery motion, and with the above pictures, you can see where the designers got it from.
