Pin trading is one of the many highlights of youth baseball teams competing in tournaments all summer long. Throughout the season there are numerous opportunities for players and their family members to meet other players, coaches, umpires, and fans from around the country. What better way to make that connection than to trade team pins. This off-the-field interaction is an integral part of each players baseball experience. These pins aren’t just a cool way to show team pride but are also used to promote social interaction and cultural exchange among players, coaches and family members.
Both fans and players alike can get caught up in the excitement of pin-trading fever. Parents, coaches, siblings, and even umpires can often be found building their pin collections as they build lasting friendships. For many players, after their little league baseball days are over, their pin collections will last for years, and keep those wonderful childhood memories alive.
