Easter Basket For Baseball & Softball Players

Choosing the Heavy Hitter: Selecting the Right Bat

If you are really looking to make a splash with your Easter basket, add a baseball bat or softball bat into the mix. With the season just around the corner, you can get two birds with one stone by gifting a new bat for the season during the Easter holiday. But buying a new bat can feel daunting. Here are a few things to consider before making your purchase.

How To Buy A Bat:

  • Consider the Size: Like any sports equipment, your bat must be the right size. Too heavy or too long and your kid will struggle to control the bat and make quality contact. Too small and they will lose noticeable amounts of power. Measure your child's height and compare it to the JustBats bat sizing chart in order to make the right decision. 

  • Material Matters: Aluminum bats, composite bats, or wood bats. Which one is right for your player? It all depends on their league and personal preferences. 

  • League Requirements: Double-check with your child’s league as some have specific certifications for bats used during play. For example, BBCOR Bats, USA Baseball Bats, or USSSA Bats.

 Filling the Basket: What Else to Include

Now that you've nailed the centerpiece, let’s take a look at baseball and softball accessories that can fill the rest of their basket.

Sweetening the Deal: Treats and Goodies

No Easter basket is complete without a little sugar rush. Instead of traditional candy, think outside the box:

  • Bubblegum, like the kind big leaguers chew, adds authentic flair to their game-day routine.

  • Sunflower seeds have become synonymous with dugout snacking - opt for a variety pack.


Assembling the perfect Easter Basket takes planning and patience. And remember to tailor each item to your child’s preferences and needs, ensuring that come Easter morning, they’ll find a basket that makes their eyes light up.
