For more than 25 years, Play It Again Sports stores have bedecked kids and adults with high-end, wallet-friendly athletic armor so that they can kick, swing, punt, and take exception to referee calls with gusto. New inventory arrives consistently, and the friendly staff can lead quality-seeking shoppers to the top brands lining the spacious storefront shelves, including TaylorMade, Nike, adidas, Easton, and more. Prices vary by item, but you'll have enough credit to purchase many different athletic accouterments. Little sluggers can chase down fly balls in fresh cleats (starting at $8.99) and divot devotees can sink far-reaching holes-in-one or knock the top hats off haughty pelicans with the help of an arsenal of eager golf balls (starting at $5/dozen). A selection of cast-iron dumbbells (starting at $0.59/pound) prepares biceps and pectorals alike for the inevitable day when the performance-enhancing effects of weightlifting are legalized in sports again. Because of rapid growth patterns and rampant milk abuse, modern kids can grow out of their pads and kickers virtually at will; customers are encouraged to bring in old or outgrown sports equipment for cash or store credit.
