My oldest son plays travel baseball, so there are a lot of times during the summer, I end up at a burning boiling baseball field for 3 or 4 hours at a time.
I never knew what baseball moms had to contend with up until the last year or so but there is a lot of stuff that’s difficult! The colorless baseball shirts and pants that are always stained with mud from sliding into home base, the bumps, cuts as well as bruises on your teenagers, as well as most of all, the boiling temperatures as well as bright and sunny weather on the weekends at the games.
I had no plan how much I would be wishing for some nice cool air conditioner during some of these games. I really had a cooling towel that I used to hang around my neck during some of the games, but that undoubtedly was not a replacement for the portable air conditioner unit! One of the other moms who has been a baseball mom for a very long time really brought her legitimately own portable a/c unit with her to the games. She would always set it up under her canopy, drop more than two sides on the canopy, as well as prefer the nicer cooling a/c during the game. When I saw her with her little portable a/c system, I was so envious! I thought that she was a genius for even thinking about doing that. For me, the best idea I could come up with was to go as well as sit in the car every once in a while so that I could crank down the air conditioner for a few seconds at a time. Of course, I would be missing the game right around the time the car started cooling off as well as I would have to leave the cooling as well as go back out to the field. That was undoubtedly not as fantastic of a plan as a portable a/c unit!
