Gear Up Like A Pro This Spring Training Season With Sport Chalet

Premier specialty sporting goods retailer offers tips on top baseball equipment, fan apparel, and more

LOS ANGELES, March 11, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- With spring training underway, players and fans alike are preparing for the 2014 baseball season. Whether training like a pro or competing in a recreational league, Sport Chalet is equipping athletes with products from top brands needed to hit the field and providing fans with gear and apparel in support of their favorite team or player.

Sport Chalet.

"If you are training, hitting the batting cage or enjoying the game from the stands, providing you with the proper equipment and apparel is extremely important to us," said Sport Chalet Expert Phillip Szto. "At Sport Chalet we have Experts on site that can help you determine which products are right for your skill level, including how to select the right glove, bat, helmet, and more. For spectators who want to support their team from the stands, we also have a variety of fan gear and apparel to help them rally behind their team of choice."

To help prepare athletes and spectators for baseball season, Szto lists the following equipment essentials:

  • A ball glove is your tool on the field, so choosing the right glove is essential to playing the game.  The Wilson A2000 11.5" Infielder's Baseball Glove and Rawlings Heart of the Hide 12.75" Outfielder's Glove are  durable and provide a comfortable fit.
  • When selecting a bat, it's important to look for a style with maximum performance, such as the Easton MAKO Composite -3 BBCOR Baseball Bat that allows players to find the ideal sweet spot with ease.
  • Practice makes perfect. To improve batting skills, work on hand-eye coordination by simulating in-game pitches with the SKLZ Hit-A-Way Baseball Swing Trainer, designed to increase the consistency and power behind every swing.
  • Protection is crucial when stepping up to bat. Padding in helmets can help provide a better fit and a face guard option allows for more safety against stray pitches. Venting technology found in styles like Rawlings Coolflo XV1 Helmet can also help batters keep cool under pressure.
  • Properly transporting, storing, and protecting equipment will increase the efficiency and lifespan of each product. Invest in a bag such as the Wilson DeMarini Black Ops Backpack, which offers a lightweight, compartmentalized design and ergonomic strap system.
  • Fans always want to show off support for their team with the latest gear and apparel. Sport Chalet offers an extensive collection of fan gear both online and in store, including tees, hats, jerseys, coolers, chairs, tumblers, and more.
