The Pro Tips Softball Checklist

Make sure you're prepared this fastpitch season with our softball essentials checklist.

May 16, 2016

Are you gearing up for softball season? There are a few essentials you’ll need for before you take the field.

Picking up a bat and a glove seems pretty obvious, but there’s a handful of other items that may not immediately come to mind. For example, sliding shorts and sliders are key to protecting players when they need to slide on close plays, and close plays are common occurrences during every softball game.

Practice apparel, equipment bags, balls, cleats and helmets are also all essential for any softball player. Consult this DICK’S Sporting Goods softball checklist for a complete guide to the gear you’ll need this season.
