On any given day, I have between 11 and 16 empty or nearly empty water, Gatorade or Powerade bottles rolling around in the back foot of my car. (Or would be it back feet, since they’re everywhere.) I’m sure your vehicle has its own collection of empties clunking against each other every time you turn a corner. Hydration is vital to our ballplayers. Cleaning out the car…not so much.
Through the years I’ve overheard some pretty heated dugout debates over what’s better: Gatorade or Powerade. No matter what side of the fence you’re on, sports drinks are pretty darn important! They replace electrolytes and provide vitamins that water can’t.
A new contender enters the ring! A couple of weeks ago, my friend Liz mentioned that her son can’t get enough of these new (or new to me) BODYARMOR natural sports drinks. They come in seven delicious flavors and are full of potassium packed electrolytes. Plus they don’t contain any of the bad-for-you, artificial ingredients, like sodium, that other sports drinks have. Liz says the coconut water is like “liquid gold.” It’s so good.
Given my friend’s glowing endorsement, I was excited to have my boys try them (and maybe steal a sip myself). The good folks at BODYARMOR happily obliged to send us enough for both our kids’ teams, the 10u Southside Kryptonite and 14u Rattlers.
When the Rattler boys were done chugging the BODYARMOR, they threw their empty bottles into the foot of my car and asked for seconds. I had to break the news that there were none left. Several demanded to know where they could get them. (Scroll down for retailers.)
An argument broke out between two infielders over which flavor tasted better: orange mango or strawberry banana. They finally agreed to disagree.
Meanwhile, 100+ miles away, 10U Kryptonite Team Mom, Christine was getting all kinds of approval from the younger players. They all agreed that BODYARMOR is good stuff!
The only potential negative I found with our new favorite drink is that it’s a little more pricy than the “ades.” On Amazon.com, a 12-pack costs $27. There are plenty of coupons, though. That’s a good thing.
