Less than 10 bucks gets you a bat bag made to hold up to two baseball bats. Less than 34 inches long, one of these bags can also be used to carry a tripod or lightstand. Available in many sporting goods stores, they have carrying straps with clips that let you hook them onto a fence or peg board. There's also room for a small camera bag and an extra pocket for loose photo gear.
