The Best Birthday & Christmas Gift Ideas For Fastpitch Softball Players

Sometimes it’s just outright impossible to find the right gift for that special person in your life. Add the fact that it is for an athlete (or in this case a softball player) then it can just get plain aggravating to keep searching for the perfect gift. SoftballGalaxy.com has decided to step up and help you find just the right birthday or Christmas present for that amazing athletic girl in your life. Make sure to scroll to the very bottom so that you don’t miss out on our list of favorite stocking stuffers as well!


RIP-IT Defense Pro Softball Fielder’s Mask with Blackout Technology
RIP-IT is quickly becoming the number 1 mask seen at every softball tournament we attend and there is a reason. These girls barely even know the mask is on and yet it still provides loads of protection in this fast paced sport. They are also available in YOUTH models as well for the younger girls.


Charles River Apparel Pack-N-Go Wind & Water-Resistant Pullover (Reg/Ext Sizes)
If you are accustomed to playing tournaments every weekend then you know that eventually you will end up in the rain. Let your softball players have a way to get out and move from tent to tent with this awesome, portable Water-Resistant pullover and she will surely thank you!


Tifosi Women’s Lust Sport Sunglasses

A fastpitch softball player’s glasses take a beating so rest assured any player would be happy with a new pair of sunglasses. Not only is this a great gift, but if they are already wearing sunglasses with scratches (especially a problem with younger players), having a new pair increases their chances of seeing better thus better and safer play. Also makes a great stocking stuffer!


AKASO Brave 4 4K 20MP WiFi Action Camera Ultra HD with EIS 30m Underwater Waterproof Camera Remote Control 5X Zoom Underwater Camcorder with 2 Batteries and Helmet Accessories Kit
Action cameras are all the rage right now, however there are so many options and many of them a sub-par cameras. That isn’t true of the Akaso. After our team going through two other non Go-Pro action cameras we finally found this one and have been happy ever since. Let your players use them for fun, or if they want mount them to a fence and let her be able to go back an relive her highlights (or errors) in games played.


DeMarini 2020 CF (-11, -10) Fastpitch Bat Series
The CF line of DeMarini bats are just plain sweet bats. Lot of pop, longevity and backed by a great company make these bats desirable to many girls. Just make sure you are getting the right size for your player and if possible let her demo swing the bat if available at a shop local to you.


DeMarini Voodoo Rebirth Backpack
If rolling bags aren’t favored by the softball player in your life, then we highly recommend the Voodoo Rebirth Backpack. One of the highest rated bags out there and for good reason. It provides room enough for 2 bats, helmet, shoes and even a fleece lined pocket for her phone and valuables. Please note this bag will probably not work if your player needs a bag to hold all her catchers gear. Available in multiple colors.


GCI Outdoor Freestyle Rocker Portable Folding Rocking Chair
Give her the gift of comfort with this amazing rocking chair. We all know days are long at tournaments and there can be lots of waiting for the next game so we really think your player will thank you for this sturdy portable rocking chair. The icing on the cake is that while she’s playing maybe you can borrow it while she’s not able to sit in it!


AOMAIS GO Bluetooth Speakers,Waterproof Portable Indoor/Outdoor 30W Wireless Stereo Pairing Booming Bass Speaker,30-Hour Playtime with 8800mAh Power Bank,Durable for Home Party,Camping(Black)
For a mid-sized bluetooth speaker (about the size of a shoe box) this speaker is great! The sound from it has great highs and lows so whenever she wants to pump herself and the team up this will perfectly handle the job.


Anker PowerCore 10000, One of The Smallest and Lightest 10000mAh External Batteries, Ultra-Compact Portable Charger, High-Speed Charging Technology Power Bank for iPhone, Samsung Galaxy and More
We’re so lucky to have our girls involved in sports since you see so many kids out of shape from being addicted to the electronics in their lives. However, a full day at the field can still bring that phones battery down and for safety reasons it’s a great idea to have a way for them to charge up their phones. This power bank can charge the phone up multiple times so it’s great for her to carry to the weekend tournaments.


Rawlings Liberty Advanced Finger Shift 12.5 Inch RLA125FS-15WNS Fastpitch Softball Glove
This is such a beautiful, performing glove that there isn’t a softball player out there that wouldn’t love it. If it’s time for a new glove in her life then we highly recommend the Liberty Advanced series gloves. Don’t forget to make sure you get the right size for her. If you are looking for a quality glove for a younger players (since the Liberty advanced doesn’t go into the smaller sizes) then we recommend looking at the 11.75″ Rawlings Liberty Advanced Fastpitch Softball Glove Series for infielders.


Precision Impact Softball Squishies: Heavy-Duty Lightweight Balls for Softball Hitting Training (8-Pack)
If your player does a lot of practice at home then this makes a great training ball that won’t go far which especially useful when space is limited. Bright colored so as not to lose them and surprisingly durable for the soft-ish feel on these balls. They are unlike any practice ball we’ve ever used and we love them!


The Hitting Vault (Pro)
Probably one of the most valuable gifts we’re recommending in this list. If your player truly immerses herself into The Hitting Vault program then she will more than likely improve her batting considerably! Put out by the amazing Coach Lisle and if you’re not familiar with that name then here’s some info on him(Coach Lisle). For just a single player the Pro version will be exactly what you’re looking for. Also, if you have any questions they are very responsive on facebook with answering any questions you may have.

With an agility ladder, cones, hooks and resistance bands you will have everything you need for your own training sessions on cool sunny days in the backyard.

Another great training tool to use in the off-season and during the season. This is a must have for infielders to work on their “glove to throw” transition.
