Prepare for your Game: Baseball or Softball Equipment means Homeruns
Getting your arm loose before the game is something that is overlooked by too many players around the world. The idea that you have a spaghetti arm that never gets tired or injured is what you say until you get injured. One way to prevent injury when playing is to ensure your arm is fully loosened up and an easy way to do that is with a warm up ball. These are weighted balls
that you toss to a teammate 5-to-10 times before throwing a game ball. Another thing you might want to do before a game is take a few cuts with your bat. Much to the same effect as throwing a weighted ball, you will want to swing your bat with a bat weight
on it. And, adjust your glove as prepare for game day. Of course, all of your gear is ready for you in your ball day equipment bag
Game Time Helpers
Whether it is pine tar sticks or liquid, glove oil, athletic tape, pro bat grip or sting eliminators, it is often the little things that make a difference. For those playing wood bat baseball or softball leagues, the need to have these items handy is essential. Without athletic tape and pine tar, you won’t be able to get a solid grip on the handle of the bat and this could lead to scary situations for spectators. Glare can be one of the most dangerous things for defensive players and one way to protect yourself in these sunny situations would be with eye black. After applying only a little eye black beneath your eye, you will be better served to field any grounder or fly ball hit to you regardless of the sun. Other game time helpers you may want to look into include scorebooks, home and away pitch counters and lineup organizer clipboards.
