The latest issue of ESPN the Magazine has a "Page 2" feature article on Mizuno Brand Ambassador Corey Hart of the Milwaukee Brewers. The article is entitled, "When I Knew...I Had the Power", and is actually written by the Brewers outfielder himself. Hart discusses a pivotal pinch hit appearance he had as a sophomore at Greenwood High School in the Commonwealth of Kentucky that launched his power hitting approach at the plate. Complimenting the article is an action shot of Hart with his Vintage Pro G3 Batting Gloves and 9-Spike Vapor Elite G4 Cleats.
Hart is having a career year for the Brewers, having been named to the National League All-Star Team for the second time in his career, as well as participating and finishing third in the 2010 Home Run Derby. He currently has 23 homeruns, a .288 average, and 72 RBI, which puts him amongst the NL Leaders in most offensive categories. Hart was the center of a lot of trade speculation over the past few weeks leading up to the trading deadline, but just signed a 3-year extension with the Milwaukee Brewers earlier today. We certainly congratulate him on this new contract!
