The long-awaited baseball pitch in our facility is now ready for use. For those who have never been to a baseball game, probably you don’t know the pleasure of watching 18 guys battle over a tiny ball. Tickets are your pass to this recreation, and already you can book yours in advance to avoid the last minute hassle. Probably this is the first time you want to visit East Gate Motor Inn for a baseball game, odds are you don’t know what to expect. It’s just a game, but more interesting than any other pastime event you have ever watched.
I would advise you to buy a ticket to a section where you are more likely to catch a baseball whenever it finds you. Unlike the basketball and football matches, when a ball strays to the fans’ areas, whoever catches it owns it! However, every attendee is a fan including that 10 years old kid next to you. You better give the kid that ball!
Alright, have you ever played baseball? The actual fans have been playing it throughout. Whether you have been a player or you want to try it out, here are the tips on baseball bats and equipment to include in your backpack.
A baseball bat is a must requirement because you can’t play without it. The game is all about hitting, and that’s where a bat comes in. Types of baseball bats are many in the market, and you can choose either for adults or young men. Adult bats have larger barrels and heavier compared to their youth counterparts. A bigger barrel facilitates easier ball hitting, and therefore recommended as long as you can hold it and swing comfortably.
A baseball glove is a basic requirement, but they come in different materials, designs, sizes, and colors. If you are a catcher, you will need a mitt because it’s relatively larger and stronger than a typical glove for catching fastballs fired by pitchers. There are baseball gloves for adult and young men. Gloves for adults are expensive, high-quality, and larger. However, quality may vary depending on the material, and those high-end leather gloves are usually expensive. When buying your baseball gloves, try several so that you choose what fits and feels good.
A helmet is quite needed if you are going to play or try a bit of pitching. Quality helmets are made of a sturdy plastic material with interior padding for comfort and safety. You will find many different options to choose from, but each model comes with its own price. For those that need specific colors of helmets, there are many colors to choose. In short, you can find a helmet that suits your personal and playing needs.
Baseballs are the core things. If you are shopping for baseballs, choose according to your playing needs. If you want to play during a wet weather, baseballs covered with the plastic material are perfect, though baseballs with a rubberized center are the most popular. These are wrapped with a dense yarn and then covered with a leather material. Once you buy your baseball, you will realize they are hard, and weigh about 5.3 ounces. Baseballs are generally designed for throwing. Believe it or not, you just feel like throwing it whenever you hold it!
Gear for catchers
Last but not least, a few pieces of catching gear should be considered by those that want to be catchers. You need a helmet, chest pad, and leg guards. These items come in different sizes for different players. There are many models from various companies, and their prices are also different. However, those expensive pieces of gear are the finest if you want the best comfort and protection while playing.
In conclusion, if you are a catcher never attempt playing without the essential pieces of gear. A catcher is always hit by balls throughout the game, and they can hurt if you don’t have proper catchers gear. Sometimes, a hitter may throw a foul ball and it bounces to the catcher. You can imagine being hit by that blazing ball on the head without a helmet. Don’t even try to play a baseball game without a batting helmet, whether you are a field player or a catcher!
