Training Equipment Buyer's Guide

Training equipment makes you a better ball player and keeps you learning new things. Simple as that.

Choosing the Right Training Gear

It can seem complicated so we've decided to make it really simple. We have split our training gear up into categories: Batting Tees, Batting Aids, Training Balls, Training Gloves, and Fungo and Training Bats.

Just click the heading below for the category of training equipment that best fits your needs!

Batting Tees

Getting your swing right is key in baseball and softball. Taking live batting practice helps, but if you want to practice by yourself this is the way to go. Batting tees are one of the original pieces of ball training gear. They help you develop better hand-eye coordination and work any kinks out. Whether your little one has just taken up an interest in baseball or softball and needs a tee starting out, or you need a premier quality tee with super durability that is good enough for MLB and the NCAA, these tees have you covered.

Batting Aids

Batting aids are key items both during the season and in theoffseason to help you stay on top of your game. They have no downside. Specialized batting aids like bat weights, hand trainers, and pitching machines can help you improve strength, speed, and hand-eye coordination, or allow you to practice on your own. It is as easy as swinging in your garage or basement during the winter. After some work with these, swinging a "normal" bat will seem a lot easier!

Training Balls

Everyone loves working on their hitting, but when it comes to fielding and pitching, training balls are the way to go. Training balls are an essential training tool and have a variety of specific uses. You can find and work on your weaknesses when you use training balls. You can work on arm strength, release point, and all-around mechanics. Depending on what type you choose, they can help young players drive through the ball, improve your reflexes with unexpected bounces, help you pitch with no release, and improve your hand-eye coordination.

Training Gloves

Training gloves are vital for improving your catching skills. These specialized gloves are usually smaller and stiffer than standard gloves, forcing increased focus and technique. They improve hand-eye coordination and ensure you secure the ball cleanly, teaching you to position your glove just right and anticipate the ball's path accurately.

Fungo and Training Bats

Fungo and training bats are essential tools for elevating your skills. Fungo bats, lighter and longer, are designed for coaches to easily hit ground balls and fly balls, allowing for repetitive fielding practice that sharpens defensive skills.

Training bats, often weighted or designed with a smaller barrel, challenge you to improve your swing mechanics, timing, and strength. These specialized bats let you have focused, efficient practice sessions, helping you develop the precision and power you need for game day performance.


Warranties from Bat Manufacturers

At Closeout Bats we stock what we sell! We have a huge warehouse and are NOT drop shipping bats like many web sites. We update inventory and availability on the Web site several times a day as inventory positions change shipping hundreds and hundeds of bats. We also sell bats out of our physical store, so sometimes things sell out before we can get them off the Web site.

Limited quantities available. Prices subject to change without notice. Like we say, if it's on the site, it's in the warehouse -- just SOMETIMES it might have some other player's name on it! If you snooze, you lose, so ORDER YOURS NOW!
