This is a survival kit for all of the travel baseball coaches who will meet for our annual picnic soon. It is a clear bag with items in it and a topper that has lots of different kinds of thank yous in various colors on it. The items listed are from different combinations I've seen on the internet.

My husband coaches 8U & two of my girls play Fastpitch Softball. People have no idea what it means to a volunteer coach to feel appreciated. My husband would have a breakdown crying in the middle of the field if someone thought enough to do this for him. LOVE IT! Thank you!

Have fun and let those coaches know how much they're appreciated. I know I wouldn't want their 'job' some days.
