To foster children ages four and up to enjoy baseball and softball and develop their skills and sportsmanship

Equipment requirements are fairly straightforward.  DSLL supplies bases, tees, balls, shirts, and hats.

Glove:  You should look for a youth-sized leather mitt (make sure you know which arm your child uses to throw).  Don't spend too much at the younger ages - soft leather will aid their ability to catch.  Please see this link for a guide to help select a proper glove size by age.  Do not worry too much about position - at the younger ages all players are infielders and outfielders.

Spikes/Cleats:   All-around cleats work here (even soccer cleats).   Make sure they're not metal. 

Baseball Pants:   Grey baseball pants work best. 

Helmet:   DSLL does NOT provide helmets but they are required. 

Bats:  Please see the tab under Little League Rules regarding the Little League Moratorium on composite bats before you buy a bat.  Please refer to this link regarding bat sizes.
