- Some type of hat, visor, or sunglasses to block the sun. Hats are the best option because they can always be used to block not only the sun, but also rain from your eyes. Sunglasses are handy for catchers to block dirt from flying into your eyes while catching.
- Sunscreen – You may not play softball forever but skin care while playing the game could carry with you for the rest of your life. Preferably choose a sport block. Spray-on sunblock is also very handy for sharing with your team.
- Water – Always remain hydrated. Keep a bottle in your bag even if it’s empty. You can usually find somewhere at a field to fill it with water if you are in desperate need to quench your thirst.
- Medical Tape – Medical tape is useful for many reasons. You can tape up an injury or us it to cover blisters or new sliding burns. You can also use it to tape up a bat grip real quickly, for a short time, if yours becomes loose and considered illegal to use.
- Extra Pair of Socks – Keep an extra pair of socks in your bag to keep your feet dry and protected. Morning games you will typically get a lot of dew on cleats while warming up. Your feet can also get wet during rainstorms. Holes in socks are also a pretty frequent occurrence in athletic socks, which can lead to blisters. Make sure to bring an extra pair of socks if you don’t like wet feet or holes in your socks.
