10 Things Every Baseball Mom Needs

My son signed up for baseball a few seasons ago.  He decided to make the switch from soccer to baseball, my heart was broken at first, as I loved watching him play soccer, we are now officially a proud baseball family!  As a baseball mom, there are several things I always have with me, so if you have a child in sports too, be sure to have these 10 baseball essentials with you every time you head out to the field.

  1. Drinks – And lots of them.  Stay away from the sugary drinks, for your sports star and you!  I have water and BODYARMOR with me.
  2. Sunscreen – Spray, lotion, and a face stick.  Protect yourself and your loved ones from the damaging rays of the sun.
  3. Healthy Snacks – We love cuties, grapes, cut up strawberries, etc.
  4. Something To Sit On – Chairs if your field doesn’t have bleachers, bleacher chairs, or a blanket/towel.  Those metal bleachers are hard!
  5. Equipment – A good baseball bag complete with everything your baseball player needs: bat(s), mitt(s), balls, and a helmet.  Before we leave the house my son has his cup and a chest protector on.
  6. Band-aids – First Aid kit is good too, but band-aids at the minimum.
  7. Something For Siblings – My daughter gets bored about 30 minutes into my son’s game, so I make sure she brings a book or something with her to keep her entertained for the 2 hours.
  8. Bug Spray – If you go to a night game and forget the bug spray, you’ll be sorry!
  9. Sunglasses/Hat – To help block the sun.
  10. Camera/Phone – You have to be ready to capture those catches and hits!

Comments

  1. A hat is so important to me and my grandkids now because of the sun and our face….keeping it shaded!

  2. I definitely think it would be my phone/camera! I love taking pictures of my kiddos and this is the perfect time! 🙂 I need to try this Body Armour drink!

  3. Bug spray, sometimes the difference between life or near-death in the deep south in the early evenings. 🙂

  4. Up here in the Seattle area an umbrella is usually helpful! Along with your rubber boots… sigh….

  5. So many of these items would apply to just about anything your kid(s) participate in. Minus things like sunscreen and sunglasses, everything would pretty much apply even to moms with kids involved in dance, tumbling, karate, etc. I wouldn’t dream of going to any event without snacks and drinks, and I’ve always kept a large supply of bandages with me as my middle daughter tens to spontaneously bleed….for no reason. Well, not really, but I swear I should buy stock in one of the companies that sells bandaids with as many as we go through. I didn’t have a cell phone with a camera when my girls were involved in dance and tumbling but really wish I had. Oh, the photos I missed that I would have been able to take!

  6. Have to say Protein bars. Quick and a variety so everyone is happy. Pack on a cooler with a drink and you’re set for a few hours of fun.

  7. My must have item is bug spray. Mosquitos are attracted to me like no other. I need the protection!

  8. My favorite is the Body Armour drink! We never have enough drinks and to have these in our bags to go would be the best!

  9. Oh the sunscreen is so important…oh and band-aids!!! We also bring kleenex in case of a bloody nose!

  10. Our must have is bottled water. We can always us it!

    Thanks for the chance to win!

  11. My must haves would have to be, sunscreen, bottled water and gatorade. I don’t go out with any of those. I haven’t tried the BODYARMOR drinks yet, but I would like to sometime soon.

  12. I’m not actually a baseball mom but lots of these are good ideas for every outdoor sport. My personal fave is the sunscreen.

  13. In the summer we do a lot of outside activities and our absolute must haves for everyday is sunscreen,drinks lots of water!!! BUG spray! We live by the beach the bugs are rediculous!!!! Def camera or phone to capture those precious moments!! Sunglasses!!!

  14. We are a soccer and hockey family. Hydration is the most important for the kids. Sunscreen,bugspray,and a chair for soccer but gloves and warm clothes for hockey.

  15. Sunscreen is my number one must have. Runner up would have to be sunglasses. My eye are really sensitive.
