Other gear required includes a helmet and cleats. For boys, a protective cup and baseball specific pants are required for all but the youngest ages. Softball players will need a batting helmet with face protection as well as masks when playing first, third or pitcher.
The league provides coaches with catcher’s gear for each team.
It is highly advised that all gear has the player’s name on it.
