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.
