what’s up guys is tracks and today we’re going to be reviewing some MLB chains and pendants [Music] Chris Archer so here Chris has the classic Miami Cuban chain Chris had an incident in the bullpen with one of his chains it broke something happened that’s not what you want in professional athletics from the picture I could tell that’s a very very high quality Cuban because the links are very very tight it’s very important to have that especially when you’re on the field and throw on the ball you want a chain that’s not gonna inhibit your athletic ability in any way or get in the way Aaron good Aaron judge is wearing a classic Figueroa link this is a link that’s been around for a very long time it’s not particularly fancy it’s something that even the average person can’t afford but he’s wearing it on the field because he likes if he likes the way it feels he likes the way it looks he’s not trying to be flashy he’s not trying to be over-the-top so this is a Figueroa chain a Figueroa chain is basically three links plus one elongated link of a curb link the curb link is these three links and if you add this and turns it to a figural link right a Cuban link would be these same three links compressed all across so a figural chain is just a specifically designed chain to get a beautiful aesthetic look that also saves a little bit on weight but mostly people wear it because they like the style of it it’s not for the weight purposes but that’s essentially why was invented to begin with to give somebody a little bit of a longer chain without having extra links that are extra heavy Mookie Betts Mookie Betts is wearing a classic Figaro link very similar to the one Aaron judge has except his is a little bit heavier the length is between 20 to 22 inches Mookie Betts is wearing his Figaro link on and off the field and these types of chains they never bother you they never scratch you so you could wear them to sleep you could wear them in the shower their gold and never tarnish and then we give you a problem they become ultimately a part of you Manny Machado when Manny Machado was signed to the Orioles he had a unique diamond chain it’s not the best for the field because it’s flying around as you could see in this picture however it’s a unique chain it’s got red diamonds white diamonds all the way around when he signed to the Padres he switched it up to a tighter link shorter heavier fully iced Miami Cuban which to me is a way better chain to wear on the field and in the game when in action that Miami Cuban chain is gonna stick with you you could be on a motorcycle with it you could play a game you could almost do anything with this change so this is the type of chain you might want to have on the field heavy short not interfering that’s something you have to tuck in and out every time you throw the ball yasiel P yasiel is wearing a rose gold rope chain a beautiful chain because the solid rope is very heavy you have to have your chains heavy when you’re on the field because when you’re throwing that ball you don’t want your chain going like this or hit you in your face you don’t want to interfering with your game you don’t want to cause a loss or something like that this choice is a little bit better because it’s heavier and it’s gonna wear even better on the field Austin Jackson Austin is wearing a two-toned rose and white gold fully iced Miami Cuban link right around 13 millimeters and he’s got another chain right under that it’s a fully ice he’s going for the fully ice look he’s not wearing the Figueroa chain that was your Grandpa’s look he’s going for the fully ice but the most important thing is it’s heavy its solid and it’s not gonna interfere with what he’s trying to do Alex Verdugo Alex Verdugo is wearing two chains he’s got a rope chain and a dog tag deep chains on the dog tag deep chain he’s got his player number 27 and another pendant on the rope chain these are two light chains that you could buy almost anywhere in America he’s keeping it classic he’s keeping it simple and that’s a good look so here Alex switched up his chains he’s got a moon cut on the 27 he’s got a nice Miami Cuban and he’s got a tennis chain with another pendant on it all three of these chains out of all of them my favorite one it’s not the most expensive it’s the least expensive it’s the moon cut so this is a moon cut chain and rose gold and you could see why it’s called a moon cut because of these little crescents it’s basically a dog tag chain that’s been modified with these little facets and they have a beautiful shine tube so for a gold chain this is about the most shine you’re gonna get it’s almost like wearing a diamond chain that’s just made out of gold Adam Jones Jones is wearing a fully iced Rolo link a Rolo link is a lighter link it’s a simple chain it’s a simple of a chain as you can imagine it’s not particularly heavy for example this is a modified Cuban and Gucci link or anchor link as it’s known this change that’s even shorter is double the weight of this Rolo link so you could see the way this is a little bit flimsier a little bit lighter and this is a little bit heavier this is something when you’re wearing it on the field you want it to be heavy so I would probably recommend that someone will be wearing something like this over something like this on the field I’m not a professional athlete but I’m a professional jr.
Ronald Acuna jr.
model has to change he’s got a Miami Cuban link that’s the heavy one and the lighter one is the curb link and that’s the one that has a cross on it as compared to other MLB players Ronald has chains that are longer that’s gonna be flying around even more that’s probably why the other guys are wearing shorter heavier their performance is gonna be right on point it might even help them in a way right to have something heavy around your neck it’s not something that’s gonna inhibit you that I wouldn’t recommend on the field it’s gonna be longer and it’s gonna be flying around in your eyes subconsciously you’re probably gonna be thinking about it as many bases as Ronald has stolen he’d probably steal even more if his changes were a little shorter and a little heavier Javier Baez javi used to have a white-gold dog tag chain with a Jesus head and then later on he switched it up to a rope chain with a I style Jesus head and a Miami Cuban to go all right again fully I stopped hobbies Jesus head chain is a little bit longer and that is gonna fly around as you could see when he’s playing the game he doesn’t seem to be bothered by it so as long as that’s fine on him that’s good but again something that probably could get annoying after a while Malik Smith Malik’s was inspired by hobby to get a chain he got a beautiful Florida pendant with a black diamond on the Capitol Florida in Tallahassee and he’s wearing it on a nice little Miami Cuban chain it’s a beautiful look and I actually admired very much Josh Bell Josh Bell has a white-gold Miami Cuban it’s a choker length like around 18 inches 19 inches tops with a second chain which is another white gold rope chain with a fully iced cross on it now these two chains are to me the right length that they won’t interfere you’re not gonna see this guy swinging a bat and then this chain is flying up in the air Francisco Lindor francisco is wearing a beautiful pendant it’s got enamel on it it’s something that I personally think is superior to what the average pendant is out there so that’s very very nice however his chain is a beautiful chain it’s a diamond chain but it’s not professional athlete ready because it’s a beaded chain with a thin link in it and that thin link is only on a timer before it breaks the way these chains are manufactured is that you fully ice a bead and you string it on just like a string of pearls onto a thinner chain that’s underneath that you can’t really see because you’re strung along so tight ultimately this is not the type of chain that you want on the field because that thin chain inside will eventually snap and I know so from experience and when it does snap the beads go everywhere Yoenis Cespedes so you Ennis has a completely unique set of chains those are unique links they’re older that’s not something that’s manufactured nowadays anymore and that’s not something you’re gonna find in the average jeweler store the nicest piece he has their buy jewelry standards would be his jersey number pendant that’s a beautiful piece a white gold chain is a unique link it’s not something manufactured everywhere and he’s got a ring hanging off of one of those that’s probably a sentimental piece I don’t know exactly where that’s from probably only he does MLB players have different styles of wearing their chains on and off to the field but you don’t want your chain to be a major inconvenience you want to have it at the right length if you have it at a longer length that’s a personal choice but it might become a problem at a critical moment during the World Series and that’s not what you want costing you the game is a chain flying in your face the last thing you want while you’re running to home plate is to look over your shoulder and see your chain on third base [Music] inside the lives of athletes like me oh [Music] snap Jenny pumped get ready I’ve got a big crush on my back took ten hours just in one go this one hurts oh I didn’t finish my mom hates every time I get one what’s up guys collecting shoes started when I was in high school I broke the freshman scoring record at NC double-a tournament in these how many 39 these my favorite though finish your birthday you can wear stuff like this what up thank you is my favorite bag one big candle God gotta have my cuff link by central thanks Arnie site you go absolutely in essential never leave home without it.
