Added On: Jul 24, 2015
Cleats have been used for decades in baseball and softball to improve a player’s traction on the field. Cleats in the last 50 years have changed a lot. They’ve been made more durable and have been made more position specific. There are three main types of cleats molded, metal, and turf. There are also interchangeable cleats, which are a mix of metal and molded cleats. Molded cleats can be made of many different types of materials, based on pricing. Lower priced cleats are made for younger players who quickly outgrow their cleats and do not need them for long periods.

How To Choose The Right Baseball Glove
Added On: Jul 10, 2015
Choosing the right baseball glove isn’t impossible but it isn’t easy. You want to pick a glove that’s right for your position. Sometimes you don’t have just one position so you want a versatile glove. Regardless of the position you’re going to want a glove that’s durable and made with quality leather. Make sure the glove you choose has the proper webbing. You must finally shop around to find one in your price range. Don’t fall into the trap of buying the all in one glove that isn’t even made with quality materials. Children wear between a 10 and 11-inch glove, while adults wear a 12 or 13-inch glove. You definitely want ample room inside the glove for you to be able to wear your batting glove. This protects the glove from the sweat that can deteriorate the leather, and it also gives you some extra protection around the palm area for catch off-centered balls. First baseman gloves are typically larger to receive throws easier. Catcher’s mitts are usually bigger and...

In 1903 it was speculated that baseball derived from a British game called “rounders” but a baseball executive, Albert Spalding, strongly disagreed. There was a commission created in order to find out the true beginnings of the game, it was discovered that Abner Doubleday was the inventor of the pastime, he was a civil war hero and 15 years after his death, he was anointed as the father of the game. The first team to play baseball under its modern rules was the New York Knickerbockers. Baseball was originally a social environment for the upper middle classes and strictly amateur.

Added On: Jun 11, 2015
If you are ordering a batting helmet online, you should know your right size before placing any order. It is very important to choose the right helmet size since a comfortable helmet plays an important role in your performance and safety. Professional baseball players are usually aware of the importance of the proper fitting of a helmet however, many parents assume a lose helmet is just fine since the child will grow and the helmet will eventually fit.

Breaking In A New Glove: What is the best method?
Added On: Jun 3, 2015
A brand new glove is very stiff and it can be broken in with a few different techniques. The first is to submerge the glove in very hot water for a few minutes. However, this is not always recommended and shortens the glove's life. Some experts advise to use glove oil on firm spots of the glove and let sit. Along with the above steps, you need to constantly work the glove and fold it where the ball will go. Store the glove with a ball in hand and try keeping it warm. But the best way is to just play catch. Play ball!

What is the best baseball bat made of?
Added On: Apr 14, 2015
If you are looking to choose the best baseball bat you should definitely look for the material which the bat is made of. All Baseball bats are made of wood, mainly from 5 types. Maple is one of the best woods to make a bat since it is hard and so makes ball to jump faster off the bat. Maple wood however, lacks flexibility. Ash wood makes a ball to jump off the bat with much more force. Ash bats tend to wear out so easily though. Birch wood bat is much lighter than maple and ash version and it allows the players to swing larger barreled bats through the hitting zone. Bamboo bats are relatively new to the market. Bamboo bats are extremely strong, even stronger than steel! Composite wood bats are very durable which don't wear out quickly. For the same reason they are very expensive compared to other bats. Check out Baseball rampage for all kinds of baseball bats. You can find cheap baseball bats with great quality at baseball rampage website.
