I’ve been a baseball mom for almost six years now and while I’m certainly not an expert, I have learned over the years what I need in order to be cool, comfortable, and cute when I’m rooting my baseball player on from the sidelines. Today I’m sharing my list of 10 Baseball Mom Must Haves to help you sit in style on the sidelines and be comfortable at the same time!
Baseball Mom Must Haves
- A Great Chair.
For starters, an awesome chair is a must have for any sports mom in general, not just a baseball mom. Because I’m fair skinned, a chair with a shade cover on top is even more important.
Here’s some baseball chairs that I love…
2. The Perfect Cup to Keep Beverages Cold
Don’t sit through games with a warm drink. Be sure to prepare for hot summer game days!
Here’s some of my suggested beverage holders…
3. A Cute Hat (Baseball Mom Accessories)
All baseball moms need a cute hat for game day. Why? You may not currently be a hat wearer, but let me tell you that when you sit at a baseball field in 90% humidity on a 100 degree day for 3-5 hours…your hair definitely is having better days. A cute hat helps keep your hair under control, gives some shade to your face, and helps you shout to the world…”I’m a Baseball Mom!” all at the same time!
Here’s some adorable baseball hats…
4. A Tote Bag (Baseball Mom Tote Bag)
Being a baseball mom often means long walks to the fields carrying chairs, drinks, snacks, things to keep other siblings occupied, and more. After years of forgetting things, I now just keep a tote bag filled up with my Game Day Essentials so that I can just grab it and go.

5. A Soft Cooler
No game day is complete without a soft cooler. We like to bring them and keep cold drinks in them like Gatorades or bottles of water. For busy game days, we can pack sandwiches and fruit for between game meals or even pack freezer pops for the team for a post game treat.
Here’s some great soft coolers…
6. A Portable Fan
Baseball moms–we play in the summer, so be prepared for the heat! Don’t come to a game without having a portable fan handy for those 100 degree days where you’re baking in the sun!!
Here’s some fun portable fans…
7. A Folding Wagon
When you’re hauling stuff to and from the field (think chairs, totes, coolers, drinks, umbrellas, baseball bags, catchers gear, and more), we found that we really need something to pull all this stuff. I highly recommend a folding wagon to cart all your stuff around in! It’s worth the money and is great for beach and camping gear too!
Here’s some awesome folding wagons…
8. A Portable Phone Charger
When I’m at a baseball tourney all weekend, one of the worst things is when my phone goes dead. Keep a portable phone charger in your purse so that you can follow GameChanger or keep track of team stats, as well as take lots of Instagram worthy photos and videos!
Here’s some portable phone chargers…
9. A Canopy
One of the things that has SAVED our team and parents during hot summer games are canopies. The more canopies the better. We create a little tent town down the baseline and it allows all the parents to sit comfortably in shade. Canopies are also perfect for when you have double headers or are between games…it gives the kiddos a place out of the sun to relax.
Here’s some awesome canopies…
10. A Lot of Random Things
Here’s a list of random things to consider having on hand or in your car to make baseball life easier:
- bug spray
- ice packs
- cash for concessions and entry fees
- hand sanitzer
- first aid kit
- trash bags (for dirty cleats or clothes)
