When you really think about it, a youth baseball coach can be an influential figure for youth baseball players and even their families. Depending on the level of baseball you play, how many games you play, or if you happen to play for a travel team, chances are you’ll end up spending a lot of time with your coach. Not to mention that they act as teachers since they work with you to help you learn the game and also show you how to conduct yourself both on the field and in the dugout.

So when the season comes to a close, it would be nice to say thank you for all the time and effort they spent with you and the team during the season. Youth baseball coaches are not compensated, and take the job because they get a certain satisfaction from what they do. They enjoy teaching the game of baseball and helping young players get better. So why not get them a little something to show your appreciation. You could get them something individually or maybe get together with the rest of the team and their families and get a nice group gift. And rather that getting them something generic like a gift card, it’s probably best to personalize it so the gift is something that they’ll always remember. Here are some great ideas for you to consider.

Home Plate Plaque For Baseball Coach Gift

This can be a nice group gift for your coach. It can be easily personalized for your team. The plaque can give a big Thank You Coach message with the names or signatures of all of that seasons players below it. In fact, if you wanted, you could even add a picture of the team as part of the plaque. This is surely a gift he will look back on and it will bring back memories of that season and those players.

Mugs, Tumblers and Water Bottles

These could be ideas for individual gifts that can easily be personalized. You can add just about anything you want to say on these from Thank You Coach Dave to adding the names of your teams players. If you’d like, you could also add a picture or a baseball logo such as a bat or ball. For a coach who always has a bottle of water handy, a personalized water bottle with their name on it is something they may use for years.

Personalized Coasters

Another individual type gift could be a personally engraved coaster with a big thank you and the coaches name displayed. Any time they pull them out to use them, they’ll remember the good times spent with that team.

Personalized T-Shirt

There are a lot of things you could add to a T-shirt for your coach. Maybe it’s simply Thank You Coach or maybe something like Best Coach Ever that he could wear with pride to next year’s practices. Use your imagination to design this gift.

Miscellaneous Baseball Equipment

Maybe your coach is not necessary the sentimental type, and a gift of some much needed practice equipment will be much more appreciated. Not every team or coach has access to all of the practice equipment they could use. So getting him something he can use next season and for seasons to come may be a great idea. Based on the price of the item, this could also be something that the team as a group purchases.

One idea is to purchase a hitting or fielding net that can be used whether you are practicing indoor or outside. Add a couple of batting tees that players can use to hit balls into to the net and you have yourself a nice gift. Or possibly your coach doesn’t have an Accubat for practicing hitting grounders and fly balls to the team or could use another one. Or maybe a bag of low Impact baseballs and/or wiffle balls for use in future practices.

There are many other ideas for baseball equipment and only you know what your coach might appreciate the most. But no matter what you decide, getting your a coach a gift is a great way to show them how much you appreciate all of the time and effort he has put in over the course of the season.
