Equipment FAQUpdated Wednesday October 29, 2014 by Fremont Baseball Inc.
Does my Child need a protective cup?
Yes. All children participating in league play and practices must wear a protective cup. A special female cup is available for the girls at any sports store.
What equipment will my child need before the first practice or game?
The league will issue a jersey and cap to each child for use during league games. A uniform consists of a pair of baseball pants, a baseball jersey, a hat, and a pair of all-in-one baseball socks. The pants have belt loops and the jerseys don't provide much warmth, so it would be a good idea to purchase an adjustable elastic belt and a long sleeve baseball shirt to match the color of your child's team. Your manager will provide more specifics as for the color. Only players in the Pony division are allowed to wear metal cleats. All other divisions must wear either tennis shoes, rubber molded cleats or soccer shoes. Rubber cleats or soccer shoes are recommended for players in Pinto and above. Last but not least a quality leather glove is a must. Vinyl and simulated leather gloves may be cheaper but tend to cause the player a great deal of frustration. It's impossible to form a pocket in gloves made of vinyl or simulated leather. Therefore the ball tends to pop out when the player attempts to catch it. All players should bring a windbreaker, jacket or sweatshirt to every game and practice. Especially early in the season, to keep warm on some of the chilly nights waiting on the bench to bat.
