While you won’t have to decorate for an outdoor baseball party like you might for an indoor affair, you will want to be extremely prepared. First, make sure there are nearby bathrooms accessible for your guests (and their parents). Of course, you’ll need to provide a few bats, balls and mitts for your players. You should also bring along a couple blankets for players to sit on while not playing – an umbrella for shade wouldn’t be a bad idea either. Bug spray, sunscreen and hand sanitizer should also be in your party-day kit, along with basic first aid supplies and a cell phone, just in case.
Plan a Successful Game
First and foremost, you should invite kids who actually enjoy playing ball (like the kids on your child’s Little League team). If not all of the guests are ready for the minor leagues, bring along some pompoms for those on the sidelines to cheer with. Designate a referee for the game, so the kids know who’s in charge, and have the ref explain the rules of play beforehand. If your players are young, you may want to have an adult play the role of the pitcher. The event should be fun, not frantic, so take breaks between innings and keep things casual.
