Welcome to the second “UniSwag Horns Illustrated Edition”. Each month Uniswag will highlight best parts of the University of Texas sports gear throughout the year.

As spring begins to bloom it's time to get out the sunflower seeds and the ball caps and make your way to UFCU Disch-Falk Field for some Texas baseball. This season the Longhorns have introduced a new piece of swag currently taking baseball by storm, the new Nike MVP Elite Batting Gloves.

Texas represents one of the first teams to add this unique feature—inspired by the football field—now finds itself on the baseball diamond. With these particular gloves the Longhorn logo becomes visible on the palms once the player places his hands together, giving the batters plenty of Longhorn pride look that will surely have every team asking for their own pair. The gloves not only look good they also feature the newest technology from Nike. A very thin yet durable palm gives the batter the ability to feel at one with the bat while still receiving the best in performance, durability, and protection. The gloves have a supple, one-piece sheepskin leather palm that eliminates any seams allowing the player to maintain a better grip while swinging. Nike made sure to show off the schools Burnt Orange and White color combination while still adding a few pieces of chrome to catch the eye of the crowd. The ventilation systems located on the back of the hand and on the knuckles provide optimal airflow and feel for any player.

Texas and Nike have once again brought innovation and style to the Longhorn players that will translate into the “Look Good, Play Good” mentality that every player strives for.

Here's a closer look at the gloves from our friends at @UTBaseballEquipment
