35 Baseball Man Cave Ideas
It's October and the playoffs are here which means it's time to watch America's favorite past-time. Some buddies want to come over for the game too, but you realize that aside from crowding around the living room couch, you don't really have a good place to watch. Use these baseball man cave ideas to create the ideal baseball-lover’s den so that, in the future, playoff baseball viewing takes place in your man cave.
1) Baseball Caps
You have a collection of baseball caps. Maybe you wear some, but others are only for display. If you have an important cap, such as a luck cap you wear during big games, or one that has been passed down in the family, you want to display it. You will also want it to stay in good shape. This hat display can be mounted on a wall and is designed to hold the baseball cap’s shape. This is important if the hat will be displayed in the same position for a long time.
2) DIY Kegerator
While you may watch some games alone, you will want to invite your friends over for the big games. This means you will need snacks and lots of beer. A dedicated keg refrigerator will help you serve your friends beer without constantly needing to replenish the supply. This video shows you how to turn a normal refrigerator into a kegerator using a kit or separately purchase components that you can get off Amazon. Try getting baseball-themed beer taps, or taps that have your team’s name on them.
3) Entrance Music
If you are a baseball fan, you have heard entrance music many times. You have even memorized your favorite player’s entrance music. If you are a player, you have your own music, or you know exactly which song you will pick. With this Amazon Echo, you can give yourself your own entrance music. Pick a song and name it “Entrance Music.” Then, when you enter the man cave, tell Alexa to play your entrance music.
4) Hot Dogs and Baseball
Hot dogs are a staple of the stadium experience in baseball. When you go to a game, you likely get a traditional hot dog with mustard, or a similar favorite. To bring the stadium into your man cave, serve your friends some hot dogs. This hot dog rolling grill serves a dozen hot dogs at a time, and it looks just like a hot dog roller you would see in a food stand at a sporting event.

Part of your man cave is likely your office, computer desk, or library. When you are relaxing there, you will need a comfortable chair. If you spend a lot of time at your desk, or have multiple desks, you need a good rolling chair with back support. This chair from The Home Depot has round white cushions with a baseball stitching pattern, so it not only provides the comfort you need but also shows your love of the sport.
6) Baseball Lamp
Since you will be spending some time watching the game in your man cave, you will want to be able to light small sections without glaring light affecting the television screen. Lamps are a good way of getting light when you need it without disrupting the game you are watching with your friends. This lamp has a baseball glove design in the base, making it sturdy and baseball themed, to fit the rest of the man cave. It is also durable and less likely to be damaged if you and your friends get too excited.
7) Novelty Baseball
If you have caught a baseball at a game, you likely had it signed and framed. This is, of course, if there was no child nearby to claim it. Beyond signed baseballs, collectible baseballs can be found everywhere. There is a collectible baseball for every National Park, and many states or tourist areas, for example. This novelty baseball shows support for the USA Olympics and is a great way to show patriotism and your love of baseball at the same time.

Instead, use these coat hooks. They are large enough to fit both coats and hats and can be attached right to the wall beside the door. This also keeps people from wearing hats indoors, if you are among those who consider that bad luck.
10) Card Display
If you have a favorite card, you may want to put it on display. After all, it is a core decoration for your man cave.

This way you can pick the card to display and keep the rest of the collection safe in your desk or locked storage.

The sleeve keeps the beer bottle cool, and an attached bottle opener means that you do not need to get up if you forget to open the bottle before sitting down.
