It’s hard to believe that it is already time for Spring Baseball! It makes me happy though because that means Spring and warmer weather are right around the corner!! Not only is it important to us that our boys are involved in sports/hobbies but the social interaction of being part of a team and following (sometimes, ha) directions from a coach are essential skills that they need! This will be Brantley’s 3rd Spring season and Rhett’s first! It will be a challenge coordinating their schedules but it will be fun! If you need us, you’ll know where we are!
With sign ups going on right now there are a lot of places offering discounts on clothing and equipment. Now is the time to get stocked up for the upcoming season. Dick’s has most of their Spring sports merchandise on sale and I know that our local one is offering an additional percentage off this Saturday for certain ball parks/leagues. It would be worth calling and asking about.
Also, Academy is running a Bat Trade in Promotion, where you can get 20% off any bat when you bring in your child’s old one. This is a great deal because I’m guessing a lot of people will need new bats this year with the new 2018 Youth Bat Standards. If you have no idea what I’m taking about, read this!
My husband handles the bats, helmets, gloves and such but it is my job to make sure they are dressed appropriately! Here are a few of my favorite pieces so my boys are ready, rain or shine!

I usually get nicer pair of baseball pants for pictures and games then one or two cheaper ones for practice.
Under Armour Boys’ Clean Up Baseball Pants, Baseball Gray, Youth Small
Rawlings youth baseball pants are only around $10 and are great for that price. You can find them at Academy.
A hat is so important to keep the sun out of their eyes and off their sweet faces! My boys love their Under Armour hats like this one!
Under Armour Boys’ Blitzing II Stretch Fit Cap, Black/White, Small/Medium
I usually get black belts and socks so that it will go with any team colors and they can wear them for more than a season!
Under Armour Boys’ Baseball Belt, Midnight Navy/Midnight Navy, One Size
I usually put them in a long sleeve thermal or a short sleeve dry fit for practice or under their uniform jersey for games depending on the weather. I buy a lot of Under Armour because their stuff looks nice and holds up well, which is really important for us. If I can get Brantley and Rhett to be able to wear it (and it still looks decent) I don’t mind spending more.

I also found these cute raglans that I’m going to order for them. I love them in little baseball tees!

To keep us (me) organized I designate a drawer that is just for practice clothes and uniforms. That way I always know where they are. It is a lot less stressful than digging through the rest of their clothes. I know from experience! Ha! I hope everyone has a great weekend!!
