What is needed to play
· Required Equipment:
o RYBA will provide each player a game hat, game jersey, and green baseball socks as part of registration.
o You will need to purchase GRAY baseball pants and a GREEN baseball belt.
o Baseball Bat that is stamped “USA” or “BBCOR” ONLY. For younger players is it highly recommended to get “USA” baseball bats that are between a -10 and -12. This is referred to as a “drop”. A drop 10 or (-10), means that the bat weighs 10 ounces less than the length. In that example a 29-inch bat weighs 19 ounces.
o Take note that only “USA” bats are allowed in the league and “USSSA” is NOT. They are not the same thing and “USSSA” bats are NOT allowed and will be a penalty if used in a game.
o Baseball glove.
o Batting Helmet – sharing is not recommended, and team ones are not provided.
o Molded baseball spikes only for T-ball through Bronco (No Metal Cleats). T-ball is optional for spikes.
· Optional but recommended equipment
o Equipment bag- one that can be used for a few years.
o Batting gloves- (optional for T-Ball)
o Catcher’s gear will be provided by the league for the team, but if your player shows interest in becoming and continuing to be a catcher, you should consider purchasing personal gear and a catcher’s mitt. This is purely optional and not required.
