Equipment needs for Walnut Creek Rec League players:
Walnut Creek provides:
Catcher protective equipment and catcher mitts. (But you can use your own)
Batting helmets (encourage you to get your own)
Jersey top and cap
NOTE on Metal Cleats >>>>>> ALL AGES UNDER the 14/15 year old division CANNOT wear metal cleats. Only the 14/15 age division will be allowed metal cleats, since they play on fields that have “earth mounds”.
Parents will need to provide:
A bat (or work out arrangement to borrow a bat) - Our league allows big barrel bats and we have a page on our website for details on bats. Walnut Creek Bat Rules
Baseball pants (No specific requirement on color, unless directed by your team coach)
Matching pants, socks and belts, which will be directed by the coaches.
Cleats are NOT required, but are highly recommended for 8u and above; but ANY age can wear cleats if you choose.
Coaches will need to provide:
Baseballs for practices
Maybe some throw-down bases
Parents should consider “chipping-in” to help coach with purchase of baseballs.
