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
  • Game baseballs

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:

  • Fielders glove
  • 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.
