The Buying Guide For Softball Uniforms

Aug 17, 2007
Its Always Healthy To Encourage Your Children To Actively Participate In Sports. All Work And No Play Make Him And Her Dull Boys And Girls. As Popular Sport Often Played Around This Time Is Softball. It Is A Direct Descendant Of Baseball And Is Sometimes Called Hardball In Order To Avoid Confusion Between The Two Sports.

As A Supportive Parent, It Helps That You Not Only Watch Your Kid During Practice, It Would Also Mean A Lot To Them If Youre The One Who Personally Picks Their Softball Equipment.

1. Select A Good Supplier. There Is Tons Of Sporting Goods Outlet Stores During The Summer. Make Sure That They Offer The Finest Quality In Their Materials And Accessories.

2. Bring A Sample Of The Teams Colors To The Store Where Youll Be Buying The Uniform. Remember That Each Team Has A Distinct Uniform Color. You Wouldnt Want Your Kid To Stand Out Because Hes Wearing The Wrong Color, Do You?

3. Uniform Basically Has Shirts And Pants. Then Theres Underpants And Then Cap. Most Of The Stores Provide All These In One Set. If You Are Getting The Set, Choose The Trendiest Looking Ones With The Best Accessory That Goes With It.

4. For Male Players, Caps Must Be Generic Meaning, Look The Same. For Female Players, They Have A Selection From Wearing A Cap Or A Visor Or A Headband, Just As Long As It Is The Same Color Of Those In The Team. When The Person Is Already Wearing A Helmet, Then He Doesnt Have To Wear A Headgear Underneath.

Remember: Caps Must Also Be Stylish. Just Because Youre Sweating Anyway, It Doesnt Mean You Cant Look Good, Right?

5. Numbers Must Be Visible On The Back View Of The Team Shirt. It Should Range From 1 To 99. If Its 02, Then It Is Identical To 2. Make Sure That Your Child Does Not Have The Same Number As That Of His Teammate. The Players Last Names Printed Atop The Number Are Optional.

6. Jewelry Like Necklaces, Bracelets Or Chains Must Be Removed During The Game. Of Course, Other Accessories Such As A Wrist Band And Other Less-hazardous Bling-blings Can Be Used.

Common Sense, Its Not Practical For Athletes To Wear Expensive Jewelry In The First Place. During The Nitty-gritty Of The Game, The Owner Might Injure The Other Players. Worse, He Might Lose The Prized Possession.

7. The Required Footwear For The Players Must Have Cleat Or Spikes. This Is To Help Them Get A Grip When Running And Sliding. Spikes Must Be Shorter Than ¾ Inches. If The Spikes Are Rounded And Metal, These Are Illegal Because It Could Harm The Other Players. The Spikes Must Be Made Of Synthetic Materials Like Hard Plastic. There Are Some Spikes That Are Detachable And Made Of Metal. These Are Also Not Allowed.

The Reason For The Specific Material Of The Spikes Is That A Runner Slides With Their Feet Heading Toward A Fielder First. If The Spikes Are Rounded And Metallic, Then These Could Hurt The Player.

8. Batters Must Wear Helmets Used For Batting Or What Is Referred To As Batting Helmets. These Have Ear Flaps, One On The Right Side, The Other On The Left. Theres A Protective Cage. For Young Players, Its Alright To Not Have Cages. Of Course, These Are Mandatory For The Adult Players. The Cage Stops The Balls From Flying Straight To The Batters Face. Damaged Or Heavily Altered Helmets And Cages Are Not Allowed.

9. Catcher Must Have Their Protective Helmets On All The Time. Helmets Must Contain A Facemask And A Throat Protector. Girl Catchers Must Also Have A Protective Suit Or What Is Known As The Body Protector During The Game.

10. To Protect The Knee Cap, Shin Guards Are Worn By The Players. If The Shin Is Kicked, This Might Create A Grave Injury For The Player Resulting To Wearing A Cast.

Now That You Know The Basics On Softball Uniform Buying, Its Also Smart To Know Where To Get The Best Product At A Reasonable Price. It Is Always Better To Canvas At Different Store Outlets First, Compare Their Prices, Then Make Your Decision Where To Get The Products.

After All, We Only Want The Best For Our Children. With Supportive Parents And A Complete Softball Set, All Thats Left For You To Do Is To Watch Him Or Her During Training Or The Big Game.
