Most players will have their own bats, but each equipment bag at our fields will also have bats for players to use.
Which bats are legal for use in our leagues?
Beginning with the 2022 Fall Ball season, for our 4K through 6th grade programs, a bat is considered legal only if it contains the USA Baseball Certification stamp (any barrel diameter is OK).
Which bats are not legal for use in our leagues?
Any bat that does not have the USA Baseball stamp is not legal for play in our 4K - 6th grade leagues.
What does a bat's "drop" number mean?
A bat's "drop" refers to the bat's length in inches compared to its weight in ounces. A 28" bat that weighs 18 oz would be referred to as a "drop 10" or "-10" bat. As players get older and stronger, they tend to reduce the "drop" by swinging heavier bats in relation to its length.
What are the rules for older players?
Pony (13U/7th grade) and Babe Ruth (14U/8th grade) rules are established by the Bay Area Baseball League.
All players should have their own fielding glove. Each set of catcher's gear in our equipment bags will also contain a catcher's mitt.
We have a partnership with Dick's Sporting Goods, who will run discount days specifically for our program (keep an eye out for this notice, as it will save you 20% off your order!).
