Does your dad love baseball?
Is your father playing in a slow pitch league? Does he still model his swing after his favorite ball player? Heck, is your dad helping your team out or trying to get better at his game? Then, ditch the coffee mug or wacky tie for a Father's Day gift that is bound to be a homerun.
Here are the top recommended Father's Day gifts for the dad who plays and loves the game.
The Slow Pitch Dad
The Miken Izzy Psycho SuperMax USSSA Slow Pitch softball bat (SPSYMU) was recently named a Best Slow Pitch Softball Bat by JustBatReviews.com. The bat has also received 75+ customer reviews; all perfect scores. Armed with a one-piece construction and Certified 100 COMP, the Miken Izzy Psycho uses cutting-edge durability to ensure players love the bat. If dad doesn't love the SuperMax end-load, then he'll love that you saved money on the bat. It's currently on sale.
The Improving Player Dad
Swing analyzers and swing tracking systems can help any player perfect potential flaws in their game. Easton and Blast Motion make swing analyzers, but the Zepp 2 Baseball / Softball Swing Tracking System (ZA2B1NE) attaches to any baseball or softball bat quickly. With an easy to use app, the Zepp 2 will help dad track hand speed, time to impact, bat attack angle, and much more.
The Mike Trout Fan Dad
Does your dad talk about how great Mike Trout is? You can't blame him. The Angels' outfielder has won two MVPs. Whethe your dad still swings a bat or just really enjoys Mike Trout, the Old Hickory Bat Co Mike Trout Maple Wood Baseball Bat (MT27M Adult) will be appreciated. The bat is MLB approved and is Ink Dot certified, but--more importantly--it's the game-day model for your dad's favorite player.

Athletes and coaches around the country wear this hat, and now your dad can join the club. The bucket hat from Wilson Sporting Goods is one size fits all and comes with an adjustable strap for a comfortable fit.
The Best Coach Ever Dad
Dad has coached you your whole life. And, still, here he is coaching your squad. If he's hitting grounders and fly balls, then the DeMarini Fungo Bat Baseball Bat (DXFUN) will be fun for him. This top-rated fungo bat is specifically designed for coaches, which means it's light-weight and extremely easy to swing.
The Quick-Fielding Dad
How many times did Dad have to try to catch you as a kid? How much would he love hearing, "Hey, dad, wanna have a catch?" Grab him one of the most popular baseball gloves ever -- the Wilson A2000 Baseball Glove (A20RB151786) and watch as he reverts to his childhood days of turning double plays and making highlight reel catches. Dad caught you, now you can catch him.
Even if your gift idea for the Baseball Dad isn't for Father's Day, enjoy every game, practice, and backyard catch with Dad.
