Baseball Season Is Here! Do You Have Your "On the Fly" Tote Packed? Here's How!

Baseball and softball season adds to the craze of springtime schedules. With rain delays, cancellations due to weather and field availability, it can be hard to keep up with the demands of the pre-season. Pack your "on the fly" tote this week to be ready for anything! Gather the following items: 

  • large utility tote blanket 
  • bug spray 
  • snacks (dried fruits, granola bars, snack mix) 
  • water bottles 
  • sunscreen 
  • sunglasses 
  • baseball cap 
  • umbrella 
  • something to do (book, deck of cards, word puzzle book, etc.) 
  • your kids' gear

Put everything in the tote. Keep a case of water in your car, if possible, or just a few in the bag. Your kiddos gear should stay in their own bag so that they can be responsible for it. Then you'll always be prepared for a long practice, rain delay or double header!

I remember these days! Love the idea of keeping a packed tote bag ready and waiting, Kim Kusiciel . No more scrambling to find what you need and then getting to the baseball fields without half of it.

Yep! Great list to start the season strong. Thanks, Kim Kusiciel !
Kimberley Hemminger
Perfect timing. Today's the first scrimmage. Better get my tote ready!

Thanks Donna John, Elisa All Schmitz 30Seconds, and Kimberley Hemminger!My friend, Jacqueline, suggested bubbles and chalk as additions! Great idea for younger siblings! Plus, I keep folding chairs in my trunk all season!

We play soccer and this is a great plan.

Thanks Jregly! It works for all sports. We play soccer, too. Those can be long days, too. Especially during tournaments!

My friend, Stephanie, reminded me that depending on where you live you may also need hats, gloves, jackets, and even hand warmers! I think I have summer ball on the brain after our beautiful weekend and forgot that it's still chilly for a few more weeks!
Ann Marie Gardinier Halstead
Great tips! I always forget the big spray! :)
Erin Musto
Thank you for the reminder, so far no games up north so I am looking forward to being prepared.
Tamara O'Shaughnessy
Great list. I always make sure to have baby wipes because port-a-potties are gross and tissues (since the toilet paper is always gone in them)!
Kim Kusiciel
Those are great additions! Thanks Tamara O'Shaughnessy!
