Q: WHAT ITEMS MUST I ORDER?
A: When you get to the order website page you will see different items.
YOU MUST ORDER, 2 button pullover jersey & hat.
Anything else that you order is up to you and is NOT included in your fee.
Q: DO I HAVE TO ORDER A HAT?
Q: DO I HAVE TO ORDER PANTS?
A: NO, this year we are asking that you just wear standard grey baseball pants which most players already have.
Q: HOW MUCH DOES IT COST FOR UNIFORM?
A: We have TWO versions of the same jersey/hat.
One version is a little nicer and total cost is $67.00.
The 2nd version is more of a shirt and same hat and is cheaper at $60.00
You can choose either one.
Q: HOW I PAY FOR THE UNIFORM?
A: You pay right on-line as you order it.
Q: DO I PAY FOR UNIFORM ON THE THUNDERBOLT WEB SITE?
A: NO, you pay on the Besses store web site page.
Q: IS THE COST OF THE UNIFORM PART OF THE FEE?
A: YES it is part of the total fee for the season & NO it is extra for Fall Ball.
Q: IF I ALREADY BOUGHT A JERSEY AND HAT FOR THE REGULAR SEASON DO I NEED TO BUY ONE FOR FALL BALL?
A: NO you can use the same jersey and hat for Fall Ball that you wore during the regular season.
Q: DO I NEED TO BUY PANTS OR SOCKS, A BELT OR ANYTHING ELSE FOR FALL BALL?
A: NO you do not. We are trying to keep the costs down, so just wear grey pants, and any belt or sock will be fine
Q: THERE ARE TWO DIFFERENT JERSEYS ON THE BESSE’S ON-LINE UNIFORM ORDER PAGE. WHICH ONE SHOULD I ORDER?
A: Both last spring/summer jersey and the fall jersey are available on the uniform page. The spring/summer jersey is more expensive. It is made of different uniform type material while the fall ball jersey is more like a t-shirt. Either one is fine.
Q: WHEN DO I NEED TO ORDER THE UNIFORM BY? WHEN IS THE DEADLINE? HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO GET HERE?
A: All we can say is order it today or as soon as possible. Everyone will wait till the last minute and more than likely you will miss the deadline and your son will not have his jersey/hat in time for the first game. Direct questions regarding deadlines directly to Besses 708-474-3599
Q: DO I NEED A UNIFORM TO PLAY IN THE GAME?
A: In the past we let people play without a proper uniform, we would like to begin eliminating this situation and require all players to have a proper uniform. As soon as we can we will begin requiring players to have a proper uniform to play in games. Also the players really like it when they are wearing a proper jersey/hat like the rest of the team.
Q: WHAT SIZES DO THE ITEMS COME IN?
A: There are pull down menus that show the sizes?
Q: WHAT SIZE SHOULD I ORDER FOR MY PLAYER?
A: Use an existing jersey to get an idea. When in doubt order one size large. As you feed your player he will grow. If you need help with sizes please call Tom 708-473-5051 and he will match you up with a size that another player picked who is similar in size to your player. Please note it will get cold during fall ball and your player will likely wear something underneath their game jersey to stay warm.
Q: SHOULD I PUT THE NUMBER FOR THE JERSEY ON THE ORDER?
A: NO, Send Tom a text at 708-473-5051 with three choices of numbers that
you would like on the jersey.
Q: SHOULD I HAVE THEM SHIP THE UNIFORM TO MY HOUSE?
A: NO, DO NOT REQUEST SHIPPING. All uniforms will be distributed to
Besses and your manager will distribute them.
Q: CAN I ORDER EXTRA ITEMS FOR MY PLAYER?
A: YES you can order as many extra items as you like., such as pants, belt, socks, hoodies, etc. These purchases ARE NOT PART OF THE FEE
Q: WILL I BE ABLE TO ORDER ADDITIONAL SPIRIT WEAR?
A: YES, Spirit Wear is also available. This is where we list optional purchase such as socks, belts, pullovers, practice shirts, etc.

THE FOLLOWING ARE SOME OF THE PLAYERS THAT HAVE ALREADY PLAYED GAMES THIS YEAR (2019) OR HAVE INDICATED THEY ARE INTERESTED IN PLAYING MORE GAMES BUT FOR SOME REASON HAVE NOT ORDERED UNIFORMS FOR THE 2019 REGULAR SEASON:
Every year it seems there is a group of parents who simply don’t order a jersey or hat for there player. They just let their son wear something from a previous year or whatever else they may own.
In the past we would provide uniforms for the players on the promise that we would be reimbursed at some point. After years of not being reimbursed and many people simply not paying, we can no longer provide uniforms hoping we will be reimbursed.
We would really like to get a point where all of the players will wear the same jersey and hat like the other teams do.
This next list are the players who did not order a jersey and a hat for 2019 fall ball.
