You Know You’re a Softball Dad When…

If you’re a parent of a young athlete, you know that sports are a family affair. Your youngster puts in a lot of hard work to improve at softball, but you also work pretty hard to help them succeed. Softball Dads know that it takes time, resources, patience, and dedication to help young athletes excel at their chosen sport. How many of these Softball Dad habits can you relate to?

 

You Never Miss A Practice Or A Game

 

Sure, you could just drop your child off at practice and it would certainly be easier to skip the away games. If you’re a diehard softball Dad, these events are non-optional and you show up at everypractice and game. If it’s raining during practice, you wouldn’t ask your child to tough it out unless you were willing to tough it out, too. You value the chance to observe your daughter’s techniques and utilize that information during one-on-one practice. Perhaps you have even gone as far as shifting your hours at work or taking vacation days so that you can attend every practice and game. Different Softball Dads may make different sacrifices, but they all share an intense dedication to showing up for their child.

 

You Rock Your Daughter’s Team Gear Everywhere

 

Most Dads have a favorite NFL or college basketball team. You may still like other sports, but you know you’re a Softball Dad when your child’s team is your all-time favorite. Instead of a LeBron James jersey, maybe you wear a shirt with your daughter’s name and number. Naturally, your child’s team photos are displayed with pride in your office and home. Perhaps you have even turned that team photo into a life-sized cutout of your star athlete as decoration for your trophy room or Dad cave.  Lawn chairs, water bottles, and posters are all fair game to be turned into memorabilia.

 

You Host The Entire Softball Team At Your House

 

Win or lose, Softball Dads strive to honor the hard work of the players, coaches, and family members involved with the team. You have probably hosted the whole team at your home plenty of times over the years for dinners and celebrations. You’ve become a pro at preparing healthy, delicious snacks to help players fuel up for the game. Grilling up chicken and burgers for a big crowd is your specialty. Maybe you even know the details on the food allergies and dietary preferences of all of the team members. It may take a lot of time and work to put together meals and parties for the team, but, as a Softball Dad, you love to show the whole group how much you value their efforts. 

 

You Have The Coaches Ball Buddy

 

The No Errors Coaches Ball Buddy, or CBB for short, is the ultimate tool for the ultimate Softball Dad. It does double duty as a handy carrying case and a comfy seat for watching from the sidelines. A center compartment is big enough to hold a bucket of balls for practice or game day. Two side compartments are perfect for holding cold drinks and all the other gear you need to help keep your team in top form. A convenient shoulder strap and options for custom embroidery are just icing on the cake. 

 

Softball Dads are definitely in a league of their own. Their dedication to showing up for their child, obvious pride in their child’s accomplishments, and generosity towards the whole team truly sets them apart. Owning the Coaches Ball Buddy helps any devoted Softball Dad stay organized, tote gear, and rep their team spirit.
