January 19, 2018 - Feed Me!

One of the hardest things for a player who wants to hit, is to find a partner to throw to him. My boys are fortunate that I am always (almost always) willing to pitch to them and we have a local high school cage we can use whenever we want. But what about the vast majority of others not so lucky? 

You might say, "get them a pitching machine" and we've already written several times that JUGS makes the best. But you still need that other person to feed balls into the machine. So while that expands the spectrum of who can help (i.e. they don't have to be another player), it still entails getting someone else to come along. 

Or does it? Because JUGS thought of that too. Their 18-ball feeder (14-ball feeder for softball) means you can go take BP and no one else even needs to know about it. The feeder is simple to operate, lightweight and will feed you a ball every six seconds. 

But don't you still need someone there to load the feeder and start it? Not with JUGS' In-Line On/Off Feeder Remote which allows you to start and stop it with a step of a pedal. Now you truly are autonomous. 

JUGS makes products that get players better, plain and simple. The more innovation they bring, the fewer excuses there are for the rest of us.

October 6, 2017 - What's in the Cards?

You'll find out soon enough if you order a CoachDeck. Their handy, deck-of-card set of 52 color-coded drills come in five different sports: Baseball, basketball, soccer, softball and football and are perfect for volunteer coaches who either lack experience or time to prepare to run great practices. Below is some of the feedback from their Amazon reviews:

Excellent product. I have used many of the drills with my 9-10yo with great results. 

Great cards, very useful 

Started using these for my u8 soccer team on wensday and I love them. 

Great items, able to pull some cards our and keep in pocket throughout practice to reference if needed. 

This really helped with having new drills to keep the kids engaged. They really like when I let them pick from the deck. They feel like they are coaching themselves. 

I have played basketball my entire life but I am only on my second year coaching for my son and daughter's basketball team and these cards are very useful. Great ideas on drills to run to improve overall skills while keeping it fun. 

I use these cards all the time to come up with different drills for practices for both of my co-ed recreational soccer teams. They love the varying practices. 

Great holiday gift for my co-coach. He enjoyed using it to help arrange our practices. 

A perfect practice is in the cards with CoachDeck!

September 8, 2017 - Sweet by Design

If your baseball or softball team is looking for that extra edge this season look no farther than TeamBattingGloves.com. They can custom-make gloves with your logo, colors, even to match your uniform jerseys. They are the added touch that will have other teams wondering what else you have up your compression sleeves.

Made with the finest quality leather these gloves are superior to almost any we've ever seen in a retail store. Yet when you order in bulk (minimum orders start at just a dozen), you'll get them for half the price or better than other pro style gloves. Oh, and did we mention, this includes full customization for your team? Many organzations use them as a fundraiser or spirit pack item.

Ask them to send you a digital mock-up so you can see how your gloves will look. Show them to your players and see if they don't start drooling. These are exactly the motiviational item you need to make the next season a hit. And isn't that what great batting gloves are for after all?

July 21, 2017 - Hat-itude

If you're someone who loves wearing caps, (and who doesn't), you might have never considered anything but the standard sports team cap you can buy at the mall. What kind of sweet lid would you have if you could create your own? From scratch? 

The folks at OC Sports let you do just that. But it gets better. This isn't a case where you maybe email them some colors and a style, maybe a logo. They have the coolest online mock-up generator you've ever seen. Animated, in 3-D, the tool lets you choose everything from the crown to the to the embroidery, the seam tape, piping, even down to the buttons and eyelets! Throw in contrast stitching if you want. If these are for a team you can have individual player numbers embroidered on the back. And there are dozens of different styles to choose from.

This online generator is addicting. You'll want to play with it for hours until you have your own artistic masterpiece. If it's a traditional MLB cap you want, they can do that for you too. But why go the safe route when you can be bold. After what you come up with heads will turn when they see what you've got on your head.
