New Balance continues its "Excellent Makers" web series with a spot featuring New York Yankees right fielder, and all-around good guy, Nick Swisher. The former Ohio State product will look to make 2012 his eighth straight season in the MLB with at least 21 home runs, a streak dating back to his breakout rookie campaign with the Oakland A's. Wearing the New Balance 574, customized with the name of his "Swish's Wishes" charity, Swisher walks the streets of New York while discussing his stoked outlook on life.
