looking for help finding baseball pants, cleats, and gloves this year for my 15 year old. any site suggestions?
Chris, are you looking for new or used? I’m guessing new as baseball pants get dirty and ripped up easily and buying used shoes has risks (though it is not altogether out of the question). A good leather glove can be worn for years if you keep it dry and oil the leather occasionally to keep it supple. A new one has to be worn in (try stuffing it under a mattress overnight). If you find a used leather glove in good condition that fits I would snap it up!
Garage sales are one place to look for gloves. To search for garage sale listings, I used Craigslist and search for specific terms, i.e. “glove” or “leather glove.” You might also try calling your local thrift store to ask if they have baseball gear in stock.
Where do you look for a bargain on baseball pants, cleats, and gloves?
