Basic Baseball Gear And Equipment Needs

Since Babe Ruth hit his first out-of-the-park home run over the Polo Grounds in 1920, baseball has rapidly evolved in terms of rules, regulations and baseball equipment technologies. Look over the following summary of key baseball gear and then connect to more expanded discussions throughout this baseball and softball magazine site.

The Baseball. Find out about the modern "lively" 9.5 ounce baseballs you now use, and how they evolved from the "dead ball" era, in the early 20th century, where great hitters like Ty Cobb or Honus Wagner hit for thousands of singles and doubles because no batter had the power to lift a ‘dead ball' further. In the 21 st century, raised seam cork centered baseballs are regulated equipment for all baseballers, from youth Little league and Pony league through to high school, college and pro players. Baseballs are manufactured under careful quality control conditions, in terms of size and weight, plus you can learn about training and safety baseball designs.

Baseball Equipment

Baseball Bats. Since the mid 1830's when the first rule book was created, baseball bat designs have been subjected to myth, superstition, fickleness and virtually every other nuance as players attempt to refine technique and to gain an advantage over pitchers. Learn about the various weights and lengths of bats, from thin-handled to bottle grip designs, as well as the best wood species such as maple and ash, along with the growing rise in aluminum bats.

Hats, Caps And Helmets. Looking sharp, playing well plus obtaining necessary head-brain protection is crucial to a sport where pitching speeds even in the youth segments may rise into the 80MPH range, with the pros regularly pitching in the mid 90's MPH. Find out about the range of baseball hats, some bearing team logos, as well as custom baseball caps. When you're not shielding the sun from your eyes while out on the diamond, you'll be preparing to bat where you'll need a light weight, yet impact resistant shell baseball helmet to protect you from wild pitches, tipped balls, or even the dreaded ‘bean ball'.

Gloves. Like bats and hats and cleats and virtually every aspect of the game, your baseball glove is highly personal. Learn about unique playing-position gloves for infielders, outfielders, catcher's mitts. Sizing gloves, as well as a wide range of leather and synthetics, make baseball glove selection a crucial gear decision. Discover how to ‘break in' as well as maintain your glove so that you get years of great error-free play.
Uniforms, Jerseys And Pants. Practice and training lead to ‘game day'. Make sure your team gets good-fitting, low maintenance and hard-wearing baseball uniforms. See all the online specialists offering expanded choices in baseball jerseys, where you can get fabric and color preferences, and custom touches such as logos and insignia.
