If you have been to a Fastpitch Softball game in the past few years I am sure you have noticed that some of the infielders and pitchers are wearing protective faceguards.
This is a trend that started a few years back, and has taken the world of fastpitch softball by storm. Softball facemasks are taking the off like a rock and with good reason.
A youth softball pitcher is only 35 feet away from the batter at home plate. Compare that to the over 60 foot distance in baseball, and you will easily the reason.
Infielders are so much closer to the batter that they just don’t have the reaction time to get out of the way of a rocket headed right at their head.

Everyone is familiar with the black greasy substance ball players rub under their eyes. They use this to help keep the glare of the sun out of their eyes. Between you and me, I think they wear eyeblack to make themselves look mean. They want to send a message that they are tough, and mean. This may be subliminal message , but it is a message.
Traditional eyeblack is messy, and can even bother your eyes by rubbing it with your hands. Then the fact that on a hot day it can melt in your bat bag, and you have a possible super mess.
That is the beauty of eyeblack stickers. Their is no mess, no rubbing in your eyes, no problems at all.
These stickers work to block glare just like eyeblack grease does, but they offer an extra benefit. You can send a message that is not subliminal. A message that everyone will see.
The eyeblack stickers are printed with words, logos, messages, and yes you can get solid colors too.
Many teams will order custom eyeblack stickers with their team logos on them. Advertisers even buy with their company logo on them to give away at sporting events.
Eyeblack stickers are really pretty cool, and i am sure your team will enjoy them.

I know this is going to be hard to believe, but in 2000 when SoftballJunk.com first went live on the Internet there were no fastpitch softball equipment websites on the internet.
Everyone ether bought equipment online from baseball websites, or websites for slowpitch softball. Yes these websites may of added a few pieces of softball equipment, or some fastpitch bats, but they were still baseball, or slowpitch softball websites.
When SoftballJunk.com can on the scene it was an overnight success. People had never seen a website that only sold girls fastpitch softball equipment.
The orders came in like crazy, but so did the phone calls from people that wanted to express their thanks to us for creating the Softball Junk website.
Now it is going on 17 years since that website first appeared, and the website is still doing great.
