Here's a list of four things you must have in your bag for the 2019 season.
Despite the cold weather of the previous weeks, baseball and softball seasons are approaching at a rapid pace, believe it or not! While some lucky ones will spend the next months under Florida’s sunshine for spring training purposes, some will hit the gyms and sports complexes while patiently waiting for the spring to finally arrive. Regardless of how you prepare yourself for the upcoming summer, it is essential that you’re properly equipped. Therefore, here’s a list of four things you must have in your bag for the 2019 season.
You’ve probably heard of it before, or you’ve probably seen it in the hands of Georges Springer during the 2017 World Series or in the hands of Mookie Betts during last year’s Fall Classic. This technology is currently revolutionizing hitting in baseball and softball because it allows players to generate more power between their hands and the ball. How does it work? A couple of years ago, the Axe Bat company, along with some Biomechanic scientists from UCLA conducted a study and concluded that if the bat handle is adjusted to a certain degree so that handle is molded into in the palm of the hand, the pressure spots would be eliminated and therefore, the batters would have an enhanced grip strength as well as a better flexion of the wrists. Furthermore, those adjustments provide more bat speed and better control while you swing. This technology is available in wood bats, youth aluminum bats and in the brand-new Avenge USSSA slowpitch bat from Axe Bat. Those products are all available in our three shops.
The official on-field socks of the MLB are back at Baseball Town for the second year in a row! The Diamond Pro OTC will provide you with incredible compression and permeability that will allow you to play your games in the perfect comfort of your cleats. The various colours and designs will surely catch plenty of eyes on the diamond. Moreover, Stance socks are made out of top quality and are sturdy enough to survive the rigours of the long season. Stance also offers some casual models featuring the colours of your favourite team, perfect to show your true colours in the bleachers, while you travel, or during special nights!
EvoShield is a company that specializes itself in custom mold protection for athletes. The “Gel-To-Shell” technology gives players the option of adjusting the protection so it doesn’t affect the player’s performances. “Gel-To-Shell” implies that the protection materiel begins soft and flexible, and transforms to hard and protective in a matter of minutes, ensuring a perfect, custom mold fit. EvoShield products are available for elbows, thumbs, wrists, ankles and the torso, so you’re certain to find the right protection guard to help you perform with confidence on the field throughout the season. Additionally, you can add a little bit of flair to your game with compression sleeves featuring your teams’ colours.
Under Armour “BH34” Collection
While Bryce Harper’s free agency situation has been lingering over the course of the offseason, the former first overall pick of the 2010 draft had time to develop his very own product line with Under Armour, one of his major sponsors. With some golden and chromed touches (just like his bright and shiny future contract), Under Armour has released the “BH34” cleats, as well as batting gloves adorned with a golden logo and some workout t-shirts featuring the 26-year-old superstar. This brand-new collection will allow you to fully benefit from the performance and the quality of Under Armour’s products while hoping to sign, one day, a lucrative contract like the one he’s going to sign in a not too distant future!
