Basic Equipment

Players should arrive at the first practice with a glove, hat or visor, and baseball/softball pants or softball shorts, and rubber cleats. (Metal cleats may be used for league age 13 & up ONLY.) A baseball/softball bag is recommended to transport balls, bats, batting gloves, water bottles, etc.

Uniform consists of pair of baseball pants or softball pants/shorts, belt, a jersey, and a pair of baseball or softball socks. Alderwood Little League will provide a hat or visor for each player and a jersey. Due to fittings, players need to provide pants/shorts, belt, and socks. Managers may suggest colors for these items.

In the lower divisions (T-ball, Rookie, Farm, and AAA) the jersey and hat/visor are the player's to keep. In the upper divisions (Majors, Junior, Senior, and Big League), the players must return their jersey each year. Note: A deposit is required for the distribution of the upper level jerseys.

Jerseys don't provide much warmth, so it is a good idea to purchase long-sleeve baseball/softball shirt to wear under their jersey. Note: Baseball pitchers cannot wear white sleeves.

A quality leather glove is a must. It is recommended to stay away from vinyl and simulated leather gloves that may be cheaper as they tend to cause the player a great deal of frustration. It is impossible to form a "pocket" in gloves made of vinyl or simulated leather causing the ball to pop out as the player tries to catch it.

All players should bring a windbreaker, jacket, or sweatshirt to every game and practice.

 
Bats

Alderwood Little League will provide each team with bats for team use and players are not required to purchase a bat. However, if a bat is purchased for player use, it must meet Little League guidelines for the player's level of play, visit www.littleleague.org for information on bat rules.

 
Catchers Gear

Alderwood Little League provides each team with catcher's gear. Players may opt to purchase their own catcher equipment, but it must meet Little League guidelines. Two primary guidelines for catcher equipment are:

  1. Mask must have a dangling throat guard.
  2. Chest protectors must extend.

If you have questions regard equipment, please contact the league.
