Now that your baseball or softball player has all the necessary equipment, they’ll need something to put it in and carry it. Baseball bags come in many different colors, shapes and sizes, such as backpacks and wheeled catcher or bat bags. Backpacks are quite popular since they allow younger players to carry all of their equipment. Modern baseball bags now have clips to clip them to a fence for easy access and to minimize losing a bag.

5Healthy Snacks and a Water Bottle for the Dugout

When it’s sweltering hot and your baseball or softball player needs energy, it’s a perfect time for water and snacks. Hot days out at the diamond means your athlete should drink as much water as possible to stay hydrated. On the snack side, oranges and orange slices are a good source of vitamins and nutrients needed to keep your baseball or softball player in the game!

Another snack common to dugouts is sunflower seeds. Play It Again Sports ~ Brentwood carries BIGS sunflower seeds in various flavors!
