Little League Baseball Essentials + Printable #ThisIsWholesome
It may be February, but here in Florida we’re already moving! Little League Baseball season is starting for us this week and it’s a HUGE deal in the eyes of my 6 year old. We have graduated from Tee Ball to Coach Pitch. No longer the baby in baseball, my son keeps reminding me how much he’s growing up. And I’ve never seen him so excited! All of the weekly practices, game days and school work, it’s tough for this mom to be on top of all of his Little League Baseball Essentials, so this year, I have a plan!
What Baseball Essentials do we need to stay on top of our game?
Baseball always comes with quite a bit of “stuff.” It can be tough for my son’s #1 fan (aka mom) to make sure that he is ready to play his best! So I make sure to pack his glove, bat, cleats and helmet in his bat bag before we go. Definitely make sure that those cleats still fit! I had to buy new one’s for my son’s growing feet this year 🙂
Does your child have a FUN baseball uniform? We always get our official “team hats” on opening day, but the jerseys, pants and socks need to be washed and ready for every game! I always make sure to have a back up pair of pants and socks. And definitely wash those shirts right after the game so you’re not scrambling out the door with a YUCK shirt!
Hydration is so so so important. Whether the practice/games are hot or cold, those kids are constantly losing water with every hit, catch and throw. Get a big reusable bottle and make sure that it’s easy for your child to open and close. I like to give my son a sports drink or fruit infused water. He loves the taste and it encourages him to want to drink more. (especially when he gets so excited!) Having a sport sipper that they can use their teeth for is an extra plus! No clay on the rim!
Up early. Long school day. And then right to practice. Our weekdays are very packed! It’s obvious that we need fuel when we are on-the-go! What is our Little League snack fave for this season? New Honey Maid Go Bites! Why do we love the delicious taste to fuel our game?

From the same Honey Maid folks that create your family favorite Teddy Grahams, Crackers and now Go Bites, these crispy baked bites are the perfect fuel for my son right before a big hit! He can easily snack on these bites in the car on the way to practice or celebrate the big win after the game! Either way, I love that he is getting the essential whole grains and protein when he needs it most! Honey Maid Go Bites are the perfect snack fuel for my little slugger!
My son made the decision to play baseball this year, all on his own. It’s something that he loves, he talks about, and has a real desire to play. And you know why? Not to impress mommy or daddy. But to be with his friends and have FUN! FUN. I need to remind myself that he’s just a small 6 year old boy who’s goal is to not win or lose and game, but to have the BEST time while he’s there. I have fun on our essentials to remind me and to remind him that the key to a good game is fun.
