Recommended Equipment for Players

What kind of equipment is my player going to need to get started this season! 

  • Glove
  •  Bat
  • Batting helmet with face cage and chin strap.
    • Chin straps are a mandatory part of a players’ batting helmet and umpires will not allow players to bat without one. Although every batting helmet comes standard with a chin strap, they tend to disappear during the course of the season. Helmets get tossed around and chin straps get damaged (especially the ones with plastic clips) or fall off the helmets and get lost. It’s a good idea to have an extra chin strap around just in case.
  • Fielding Mask
***NYSL does not provide any equipment with the exceptions of bats should your player need one.***

Catcher's gear IS provided by the league.

If you need help finding the right equipment, there are great resources online and you can visit a Dick's Sporting Goods to try on gloves and bats as well.
