Are you looking for a team snack that the kids will go crazy for? These baseball Oreo pops are it! After all, team snacks are part of the fun of playing baseball (or any other youth league sports, it seems). Once you get into the swing of it, you can make this cute baseball snack idea for lots of different sports like soccer, basketball and more.
Our son played baseball for the first time this year, and I have to admit, we are in love. I don’t know why I was so hesitant to put him in sports for so long. Oh, yeah, some sports parents be crazy. But, I digress.
He had an absolute blast playing coach pitch this year. He didn’t get his first hits until the last two games of the season, but I think that made it all the sweeter. He was so proud of himself, and the other baseball moms were just as excited as we were when he scored. Isn’t it great when you get on a team like that?
