2009 Baseball Equipment Series – Batting Helmets and Protective Gear

Friday, March 27th, 2009

Always under looked, the 2009 equipment series takes a detailed view of batting helmets and other protective baseball equipment.

Batting Helmet -

Besides the extremely important cup, batting helmets are the most important protective gear a ball player needs. Helmets protect against arrant fastballs or foul balls that can do serious damage. Most youth leagues require a facemask requirement on helmets as well to prevent major injuries to the face. Helmets don’t have to hinder playing abilities though.

Rawlings, Wilson, Easton, and other helmet manufacturers have developed technology to increasing cooling as with the Rawlings Coolflo helmet line. They’ve also added a more sleek design to increase comfort levels.

Baseball Protective Gear -

Various forms of baseball protective equipment are also a must in the field; especially for youth ball players. Technology again has expanded the way players can protect themselves from various injuries. The baseball protective cup is an absolute must while batters shin guards, knee savers or wedges, and heart guards help stop injuries.

Heart guards are rapidly becoming a popular item to use in the field for youth leagues after several high profile incidents involving hard batted balls hitting kids in the chest. Knee Savers by Easton and Diamond are a great way to save catchers knees from wear and tear. Batters shin guards not only protect the legs from fouls and bad pitches but also add an imposing look at the plate.

Improve your play while staying safe with a variety of baseball protective equipment.

2009 Baseball Equipment Series – Baseball Bags

Tuesday, March 24th, 2009

The 2009 Equipment Series continues with a recap of a general product category at Baseball Rampage. A baseball bag can be used to transport bats, catchers equipment, and other gear. Manufacturer advancements have went from the formerly simple duffel bag to an all-inclusive product that can carry everything from bats and gloves to helmets and other equipment.

Easton, Rawlings, and Mizuno are the most popular equipment bags while Diamond is quickly becoming the preferred catchers equipment bag. Prices can range from $17 for a simple Easton bat tote to over $150 for products like the Diamond Wheeled Deluxe umpire bag or Easton Sled Team Bag.

When choosing a baseball equipment bag, it’s always key to think ahead. Buying a $20 bat bag may meet your needs immediately but if you plan to grow into a more competitive environment including travel teams, switching positions (especially to catcher), or other changes, you could find yourself spending even more down the road. The heavier the gear and the more travel will almost certainly require the use of a wheeled equipment bag. Almost every manufacturer has a wheeled back on the market so make sure the size fits your current and future needs and you should be set.

Anderson Baseball Bats -

Swing any brands bat and you’ll never find one that sounds like an Anderson. Renowned for their durability and performance, Anderson bats use several new technologies to increase performance across their full line of youth and adult baseball bats.

Anderson Bat Company developed power-arch technology for their bats which is a series of opposing arches that stay in contact with the outer barrel to reduce vibrations, thus increasing performance. The “crack” heard from Anderson bats is literally unheard of with metal bats. The Energy Loading System, single wall technolgoy, harnesses the bat vibration and diverts it back to the ball creating a “crack” sound instead of the normal “ping” heard in most bats.

Approved by every major youth league, the Anderson Techzilla is one of the most sought after little league bats around. The Pyrotech adult bat uses the same technology for increased performance in adult and senior leagues. Anderson bats are changing hitting one “crack” at a time.

All bats are finished in Akzo Nobel SIKKENS Paint that will help increase the brightness and durability of the finish.
