Keeping a dugout free from equipment chaos is an ongoing challenge in youth sports.
I’ve reviewed a few dugout organizers on JBM Thinks Sports Parenting–all excellent options–and today I’d like to show you another one. This one, however, is a smaller, more compact answer to dugout organization, and in fact, fits easily into any sports bag.
A year ago, Barry was looking for a way to help his 16-year-old daughter organize her softball helmet and bat in the dugout. He came up with the idea for the Bat Butler, a personal bat and helmet hanger.
The Bat Butler did what other baseball organizers do, but with a simpler, smaller design.Forged from 18 gauge galvanized steel, the lightweight bat and helmet hanger/holder clips securely to a chain link fence. It is ideal for athletes who play baseball, little league or softball on any level.
What’s the word on the field?
Bat Butler‘s simple, unique, and personalized design (choose from 6 colors and get your child’s number printed on the hanger) has garnered positive reviews:
I recommend it to anyone who is tired of walking over Helmets and Bats in the Dugout. Most simple thing I have every seen and works GREAT!
The bat butlers are great! Considering purchasing 16 more for our 18U team.
My daughter used it this weekend at a tournament and it works great. I’m talking to the coach now about ordering some for the team.
My 14U team loved them! Our dugout is finally organized.
An added bonus
And the cool thing about the Bat Butler? It’s small enough to easily save as a reminder of those all those baseball and softball games you went to while your kids were growing up. And if you get new ones as colors and numbers change, you’ll have a great reminder of all your kids’ teams and jersey numbers. A pretty practical souvenir.
Note: Bat Butler works best with helmets that have face masks and/or chin straps work best with the Bat Butler. It was developed for Barry’s daughter who is a fast pitch softball player, and the league requires them all to wear protective masked helmets which fit securely behind the bat on the Bat Butler.
Yes, this is a paid review. But I stand by my promise to only review products that I think will help sports parents and their children have a better experience in youth sports.
