Inside Redmond’s World...

Posted at 7:31 PM on June 26, 2007 by David Zingler

Mike Redmond may have a shoe fetish. Although he's played in just 48 of the team's 74 games, the Twins back-up catcher says he’s already been through 30 pairs of Nikes this season.

Being a major leaguer has its perks; the cleats come free. “This is The Show, you just order them and they send them to you,” Redmond explained.

Redmond gleefully went through his shoe inventory. He’s got black-on-black, gray-on-black and even white-on black. Major League rules state that as long as the shoe is 52% black another dominant color is acceptable. Nike gets their 48% worth, especially with the white.

How many pairs would Redmond need if he actually had to pay for them? “Probably one” the 36-year-old admitted. “But my feet would be killing me.”
