Smitty Deluxe XL Expandable Umpire Ball Bag
OFFICIAL 2-MINUTE REVIEW: Smitty Deluxe XL Expandable Umpire Ball Bag
I have tried a few different types of ball bags over the years. Now, I have not tried the expensive ($15+) ball bags, but I am not sure how much better they could be than the Smitty XL. This ball bag is very large and can easily hold 6 baseballs comfortably. I've had as many as 8 in them, but prefer to have 5 or less for a professional appearance. The lining is nice and keeps the baseballs dry, even during rainfall. The lining also prevents sweat from your body getting the baseballs wet. The pockets at the top are nice for the line-up card folder and your plate brush. I recommend these to any new or experienced umpire. These are worth spending a few dollars more to have the larger, expandable sides. It will give you a better appearance and fit better with less flopping when you run.
Took a while for this product to reach me. We have moved to wearing grey pants, so purchasing a grey ball bag was next. I will be using it in January when our season resumes.
