7 Must-Have Items for Baseball Season

2020 might have been a tough year for many of us. But fortunately, baseball season is just around the corner!

Baseball season marks a period of rebirth and new beginnings for fans and even casual viewers throughout the country. It’s a time of new activity and possibility. This is even marked by baseball itself, since Spring Training typically begins in April, so teams are ready to play shortly after.

But fans have to get ready as well. If you want to catch all the games you can, whether you’re interested in viewing MLB games or watching Little League games with your kids as players, you’ll need some equipment. Let’s break down the seven must-have items for baseball season you should consider picking up right now. 

A Baseball Cap

For starters, any baseball fan needs a quality cap. A baseball cap is arguably the iconic apparel piece that performs the most critical functions. For one, baseball caps are just cool to wear. There are so many designs you can choose from, ranging from American or patriotic designs to baseball caps that have the logos of your favorite teams.

But baseball caps also help to keep the sun out of your eyes and keep you cool while you watch the game. Nothing is more annoying than having to squint as you look down at the field. A baseball cap can keep your viewing experience more pleasurable.

Not sure where to pick up some high-quality baseball caps? Check out Printed Kicks’ selection. We’ve got a wide range of baseball caps for just about any taste. You can also check out official team caps if you want to support a specific team at a home game.

Foldable Chairs

This next item is mostly important if you plan to attend Little League games or watch casual games in your community: the foldable chair.

Foldout or foldable chairs are staples for a reason. They’re a great alternative to bleachers, especially since they have supported backs, so your waist doesn’t get tired over the course of a game.

But foldable chairs are also convenient when you need to sit and watch a game on the grass. In other words, they're a perfect solution if you get to the game later than expected and can't find an appropriate spot on the bleachers.

Some of the best foldable chairs have holders for your beverages or accessories, too. Do yourself a favor and pick up a few foldable chairs with carrying bags – they’ll make getting to and enjoying your next baseball game that much easier.

Hoodies for Cold Games

Since baseball season starts in the spring and lasts well beyond summer, some games at the beginning and end of the season, and even certain late-night games, can be pretty chilly. There's no escaping the fact that baseball has to be played outdoors.

But you don’t want to miss a game just because the temperature dips below 40°. Instead, why not pick up a comfortable hoodie you can wear while you’re at a baseball game? That way, you can keep enjoying your favorite pastime and feel snug and comfortable at the same time.

As with baseball caps, Printed Kicks has a wide selection of comfortable hoodies you should definitely check out. Many of these hoodies have awesome logos or designs on them, like American flags and more.

Hoodies straddle the line between being comfortable outerwear and stylish apparel. You won’t be too hot or too cold in a hoodie, and even if you do start to work up a sweat, you can easily take the hoodie off and cool down. Just be sure that you get the right size for comfort!

Baseball Sneakers

But that’s not the only piece of clothing you should think about buying for baseball season. You’ll also need some great baseball sneakers.

Printed Kicks’ sneakers are a great example. These are mesh sneakers with high-quality traction on the bottoms. As a result, you can rely on these sneakers either as a baseball game watcher or a player (provided it's not a professional game when your wardrobe is more strictly regulated).

In fact, our sneakers are great choices for Little League games or casual adult games. The traction on the bottom helps the sneakers retain a good grip on the grass, even if it’s dewy or moist. But perhaps most importantly, our sneakers are comfortable to the max.

Each pair is made with breathable mesh fabric so your feet won’t become sweaty or hot over time. This makes them a great choice for casual baseball viewing, especially for kids, who might be more likely to run on the field and trip without appropriate footwear.

These sneakers are perfect picks for any weather outdoor play, so they’re great choices for general purchasing as well. Check out the baseball mesh sneakers we have to offer in a few different styles so you can showcase your support for the game and have some functional footwear for the future.

A Cooler and Snacks

You won’t be able to take a cooler and snacks into a professional baseball stadium since they’ll want you to buy their overpriced (yet delicious) hotdogs and other snacks instead. But a cooler and your own snacks brought from home can be great choices if you are attending a casual game or watching your kid’s Little League game.

Let’s face it – sometimes baseball games can take a while to finish, especially if the teams are evenly matched, and each inning takes up to 20 minutes or more. In that case, nothing hits the spot more than ice-cold lemonade, Gatorade, or even beer. But you can only get those things if you have a quality cooler by your side.

Try to find a cooler that comes with wheels and other rolling features. This will allow you to bring the cooler with you to any baseball game pretty quickly and easily. The best coolers will retain their cool internal temperatures for several hours without a problem, at least as long as you add ice to the cooler before leaving.

Don’t forget to bring plenty of tasty snacks, including a few treats for your kids and their fellow players if you’re so inclined. But snacks can also be a good choice for you and other adults, especially if the game stretches beyond lunchtime.

A Tumbler for Drinks

Speaking of drinks, you might consider purchasing a high-quality stainless steel tumbler. Good tumblers will be made with vacuum-sealed walls to keep the temperature of your drinks stable for hours on end.

For example, Printed Kicks' tumbler can keep a hot beverage warm for about a day and a cold beverage cold for around 12 hours, even under extreme temperatures.

Tumblers are much better choices than traditional plastic water bottles as well since you don’t have to waste plastic materials or add to environmental problems. In contrast, stainless steel tumblers are easy to wash and will last for years to come.

Bring a tumbler for yourself to any baseball game, and you won’t have to deal with being uncomfortably thirsty around halftime. Plus, you won’t have to pay for any overpriced beer if you’re sneaky about it…

Sunglasses

Lastly, think about purchasing some sunglasses before baseball season starts. While there are a few late-night games from time to time, most baseball games take place in the bright sun of the day.

During the summer, this can be downright oppressive, depending on where you sit in the bleachers or stands. Plus, trying to squint through the sun without protection for too long can lead to damage

But you don’t have to worry about not being able to see the game play out so long as you have some great shades. Combine these with a baseball cap, and you’ll be able to watch any game’s action, even if the sun is shining right in your face because of some unlucky ticket purchases.

Plus, the right shades just look cool. Therefore, sunglasses are a perfect pick for baseball season, both as an improvement to your style and as a practical addition for baseball games at the same time. Grab some that fit your face and your aesthetic, and you’ll look great.

Summary

As you can see, there are lots of things you should buy to prepare for baseball season. Fortunately, you might have several of these items already as part of your regular wardrobe or from previous baseball seasons.

This list is meant to help you round out your collection and make sure that you’re ready for the coming baseball season, so you don’t have to sit through a single uncomfortable game. Be sure to check out Printed Kicks’ store in more detail. We offer a wide range of high-quality and patriotic products for Americans who love our national sport.
