If you’re like most people, you are looking forward to the holiday season that is rapidly approaching. Families are decorating, the weather is getting colder and children are making their wish lists.

But, most people always end up wondering what to get the last few people left on their list for the holidays. Softball America is here to help you with that. We’ve compiled a list of the best softball gifts for the softballers in your life.

See below for some gifts any softball player would love this holiday season.

Blast and/or Rapsodo Softball Technology

Whether the athletes in your life are playing at the 10u or 18u level, they will love being able to analyze different parts of their game.

The Blast sensor attaches to the end of your bat and connects to an app on your phone. It then analyzes your swing so that you can understand data points related to bat path, exit velocity, bat angle and more. 

Rapsodo's softball technology is for pitchers and hitters alike, as it allows coaches to analyze various metrics that encourage data-driven development.

New Equipment

Gifting your softball player a new bat, glove or gear is always a sure way to put a smile on their face. If you’re looking to make the gift even more special, Louisville Slugger and DeMarini allow for customization of their bats.

Along with that, most glove producers offer an option to customize gloves as well.

Pitch Tracker

This is the perfect gift for the pitcher in your life. This ball comes with an app to download onto your phone that tracks different measurements of a pitch. It tracks spin rate, velocity, spin direction and more. 

New Water Bottle 

No matter if they’re training during the offseason or enduring tournaments in the scorching heat all summer, it is imperative to stay hydrated and healthy when playing softball. Gifting your softballer a new water bottle is sure to be a crowd pleaser.

Softball Apparel 

Another gift you can’t go wrong with is softball apparel. Whether it’s clothing that reflects their support of a particular college team, the NPF or Athletes Unlimited—or even just Dick’s Sporting Goods’ new line of softball clothes—you really cannot go wrong.
