Players will need to have an official hardball or softball glove.
When choosing a glove take into account the ball they will be playing with. Also keep in mind that when deciding on a glove that the plastic beginner gloves may fit their hand well but do not allow a child to create a pocket in the glove or have the ability to open and close the glove properly. They also have no padding and can lend to players getting hurt. Leather is highly recommended.
All players must own a proper batting helmet with chin strap.
T-Ball and Atom divisions wear running shoes. They are not allowed to wear cleats. Peewee, Bantam and Midget divisions are permitted to wear cleats but they must be non-metal cleats.
All G.A.B.A. players receive a hat, jersey, pants and socks as their uniform.
If your child is interested in pitching, there are infielder face masks available at sporting goods stores. They are not mandatory for play, but are an option if you would like that bit of extra protection.
