CLEVELAND — All-Star Weekend is finally in full swing and Play Ball Park is open for day two Saturday. It's the MLB’s fan experience for the All-Star Game and there are more than fifty unique attractions.

Sole Power is the first of its kind at Play Ball Park.

It shows fans how custom cleats are made, and on display there’s a number of custom cleats worn by Major League players.

Some of them are up for auction and the proceeds will go to MLB charities.

Jonathan Hrusovsky is the featured artist at the Sole Power booth.

He owns Hrusovsky’s Custom Kicks in Cleveland and designed a pair of cleats for Indians pitcher Mike Clevinger, which you can see if you come by the booth.

Kids can also design their own custom cleats and a lucky winner will get their design on a pair of cleats or sneakers.

“When you’re playing baseball you just want to have fun, all over. Regardless of if its just playing, you want to showcase your personality, you just want to have fun. And that’s why you kind of incorporate that art into it because yes, you have your standard jersey, your uniforms, you have your gloves, but what you can obviously do is customize those shoes and that’s what makes you stand out,” Hrusovsky said.

If you want to own any of these custom kicks, you have until Tuesday to make a bid. Bids can be made here.
