We have turned a corner in the Stewart house. The kids have all hit ages where they do fun ‘big kid’ stuff and not hard, pack-my-life-in-a-bag to leave the house ‘baby’ stuff. All 3 boys are playing baseball, and Zander has moved up to Coach Pitch! He loves it, and we’re so excited to watch him play this season. Momma is on a steep baseball learning curve, but I’m confident these boys will keep me up to speed!
A good friend of mine recently told me about Batter UP! box… a baseball themed subscription box with a Coach Pitch option! I couldn’t wait to contact them and find out more!
What is the Batter UP! box?
Batter UP! box is a monthly subscription box full of baseball or softball themed training tools and accessories. The boxes are catered to your child’s age and skill level. You can choose from Tee Ball, Coach Pitch, Kid Pitch, Softball, Softball Elite, and Senior League. A month to month subscription is $29.99 per month with free shipping. You can save even more by pre-paying for 3-month or 6-month subscriptions.
What’s in the box?
Obviously, we chose the Coach Pitch option for Zander. First thing in his box was this note card with the Batter UP! Box Tip of the Month. It includes a batting drill and stance reminders.
Next, A TeenyMates MLB action figure. Zander has a couple of these already, so he was very excited to get a new one to add to his collection! I checked on Amazon and you can buy a 4 pack of this particular series of TeenyMates for about $10, making the retail value of this around $2.50.
And then the eye black. I tried to hold him off until he was actually playing baseball, but this little turkey snuck off to the bathroom and was looking game-ready headed to bed! Not mom’s favorite thing, but I had one happy boy… who returned to school the next morning looking like he’d been in a fight with Rocky Balboa. Retail value, according to Amazon, around $6. That cheesy grin, priceless.
I must admit, I had no idea what this thing was when he pulled it out of the box. After a quick explanation from Daddy, Zander had it slid onto his bat and was all over those batting drills included on the tip card. For those that also don’t know, it’s a bat weight valued around $10 on amazon.
I’m sure you can tell by his face that he was more than a little thrilled to see these Fathead Tradeables. He pestered me for a good two hours before I caved and let him stick them all over his bedroom wall. I’m certain he’ll be asking Santa for more! This pack included 5 – 5″x7″ peel and stick vinyl decals. The same one is for sale on amazon for $9.
And no baseball theme box would be complete without some Big League Chew! He had to fight off his brothers and sisters (and Daddy) to keep this for himself! These retail for $2-3/each depending on the quantity you purchase on Amazon.
If you’re keeping track, the retail value of the items in this box was around $30, which is exactly what this box costs (or less if you pre-pay for an extended subscription). And, not only is the box reasonably priced, there’s so much added value. For one, it’s packed full of items hand selected for a Coach Pitch baseball player like Zander. He loved everything, and I never would’ve been able to pick all of this stuff without help. Also, I’m not able to put a value on the tip card or the excellent customer service we’ve received working the Batter UP! box.
Go ahead and add this one to the list of perfect Christmas or birthday gifts for the baseball-lovin’ boy or girl in your life! I hope you’ll give it a try and come back and let me know how much they love it! Click here to head over to their website and get yours ordered today. Use code SWING5 to get $5 off your first box!
Special thanks to everyone at Batter UP! box for working with Pop Goes Perfection and providing us with a Coach Pitch box for Zander to try!
