As Spring Training comes down to its last week, the major leaguers are making sure they are primed and ready-to-go for the upcoming 2015 season. After the long hours of training and practice, the season is so close to Opening Day and the players have been working hard in the offseason to make sure they are ready once that first pitch is thrown.
A large part of training to be ready for the big day, is making sure they are well equipped with the right gear for the best performance possible. This includes training shoes, performance undergarments, shorts and of course More >
OK DeMarini faithful, you can let out that breath you’ve been holding while waiting for the new CF8 to arrive. The wait is over, and the 2016 CF line of bats from DeMarini are available at HomerunMonkey.com! DeMarini has revamped the technology used in these bats and has even added a brand new bat to the popular line.

For St. Patrick’s Day, 2015, we teamed up with Wilson in creating the latest addition to our HomerunMonkey Custom Gloves. In the spirit of St. Paddy’s day, the newest glove will carry a special, Irish theme!
The glove is a Wilson A2000 DP15GM, Dustin Pedroia game model. It features all of the same specifications you would expect from the 11.5″ DP15, most notably Wilson’s “Pedroia Fit” which includes: longer laces, a low profile heel (for a better feel), shorter finger stalls and a smaller hand opening for those that prefer a more snug fit or have smaller hands. The only difference between More >
As baseball and fastpitch softball have evolved as sports, the equipment each player uses has evolved as well. The gloves and mitts that are used on the field are more position-specific, helping the player field or catch the ball to the best of his/her ability. However, those that are new to a position may not understand the importance of the design of the glove and just what the big differences are between each one. This goes especially for the fielders that are considering catching for the first time. If you are new to being behind the dish, here are 3 More >
For those that are new to the world of Slowpitch Softball, choosing a bat may be pretty overwhelming. The length and weight ratios are different than in Baseball and Fastpitch Softball, not to mention which bats are legal in different leagues and tournaments vary. So, before making such a crucial purchase, it’s important to know the ins-and-outs for what your needs are as a player, as well as the leagues and/or tournaments you will be playing in. Hopefully, this guide can provide a little insight and make the buying process for slow pitch softball bats less complicated and confusing.
ASSOCIATIONS AND More >
Looking at all of the baseball bats that are available on the market today, it can be overwhelming when trying to determine which one to use in a game or practice. With the numerous materials, stamps, weights, designs, etc. players and parents are left at a crossroads when selecting a bat to use at the plate. So where does the player or parent start? How does someone determine which bat is best? Hopefully we can clear up some of these questions when it comes to the different options each player has.
Where to Start…
The best place to start is with league regulations. More >
Over the past few years, there has been much talking and, well, complaining about the latest NCAA and NFHS bat certification deemed “Bat-Ball Coefficient of Restitution”, better known simply as “BBCOR”. Officially since 1/1/11, the BBCOR standard has been a requirement for bats used in NCAA regular season and tournament play; a change from the previous, more responsive Bat Exit Speed Ratio (BESR) standard. The thought behind the new standard and change is the desire to make non-wood bats perform closer to the wood material – which will require better skill from the players, reduce the exponentially increasing offensive (particularly More >
Since posting about our “Axe Bat BP Giveaway”, I have gotten a number of questions regarding the Axe Bat and the theory behind the unique design of their patented handle and the durability of the barrel. With the influx of questions coming in, I thought I would dedicate a blog specifically to the benefits of the Axe bat and the information that backs up those proposed benefits.
If you are not familiar with the Axe bat design and what sets it apart from other manufacturers, start by looking at the handle. For baseball (all materials, including wood), fastpitch and slowpitch bats, More >
