Hi friends! I’m Natasha, aka Tash, aka a Mom in the Bleachers (although more accurately, I’m usually positioned right behind home plate so I can have the best view of every single play!)
In case you haven’t guessed it, I’m a baseball mom, and we spend most of our year playing, traveling, or planning for tournaments while our soon to be 10 year old does what he loves: play baseball. I also get dibs on the coach. He happens to be my hubby 😉
When we first signed up for travel baseball, I had no idea what would lie ahead. And while this new lifestyle definitely took some getting used to, I’ve learned a lot of tricks along the way to make it easier, more manageable, and a heck of a lot of fun.
So tighten that messy bun and refill your to-go cup of coffee. You’ve got a long drive ahead of you, I’m sure, while you travel to your tournament. So stay awhile and let’s cheer together.
“You don’t need a ticket to see some of the best baseball in the world, you just need to drive one of the players to the game.”unknown

Tips and tricks to make your travel sports lifestyle a little easier. I love sharing travel hacks, places we’ve visited and must-see spots along the way, packing tips, fitness and nutrition tips (especially when it involves staying in a routine even when your schedule is crazy), my favorite travel gear (I’m talking bags, activewear and athleisure), and more.
A little more about Me…
I’m a wife, #boymom to Cooper, dog mom to Tucker + Remi, NASM-Certified Personal Trainer, Nutritionist (soon to be Sports Nutritionist), and freelance writer. Whew. That’s a lot of hats, but luckily I love hats. I’ve been featured on sites such as Her View From Home, The Huffington Post, Today Show Parenting Team, Eat This Not That, Bustle, and more.
When I’m not watching my son play baseball (and let’s be honest, most days of the week I am watching my son play baseball), I can be found on various writing platforms, Googling my parenting decisions, drinking all the coffee, and coaching my clients to live their best lives.
