Baseball and Softball
Whether you're on a team or just playing casually with friends or family, having the right baseball equipment will help you get more out of your game.
There are many types and styles of baseball bats. Plastic bats are good options for young children. For older kids, you'll find youth bats in both metal and wood. Bats also come in different weights and shapes. A T-ball bat, for example, is wider at the end than an adult bat.
The right baseball glove will depend on what position you play: there are different pitcher, first base, outfield, infield and catcher gloves. There are also different gloves for right-handed and left-handed players. A batting glove helps you keep a firm grip on the bat when swinging.
Baseballs also come in many varieties. Wiffle balls are best for T-ball practice and for teaching kids to catch. Softer baseballs, or "safe balls," are also good for children. Pitching machines require special balls designed to fit the machine. And weighted balls can help pitchers build strength.
Baseball protective gear is important for guarding against injuries. Baseball helmets are crucial for protecting your head, and if you're a catcher, you'll need a protective face guard and catcher's gear. Wrist and ankle braces can add additional support, and male players should wear cups.
