Equipment Information

As a parent, having the right equipment for your player is an important part of their baseball experience.  It can be confusing with all the options available and it can be hard to determine what your player needs, whether they've outgrown their equipment or you are new to baseball.  We hope this guide provides information that takes the confusion out of the process and helps make preparing for each baseball season a little bit easier.

If you have any questions about equipment, please contact the Division Coordinator(s) for the respective division your player is registered for or discuss with your player's coaches.
