Equipment and Uniform Rules
As a rule, NWLL provides required catcher equipment, baseballs, caps and shirts.
NWLL Player will provide:
- Practice attire- Most coaches prefer that players wear baseball pants and cleats during practice.
- Gloves- IF you are not familiar with sizing a baseball glove, you should go to a local merchant for help. For younger players, try to find the largest glove the child can maneuver (close and open). If helps if gloves are broken-in or naturally floppy. Gloves that appear proportionate to the player are almost never large enough. Remember, the ball is regulation in size so it is difficult to catch with a smaller glove.
- Bats- The bat must be approved for Little League play. This will be printed/stamped on the barrel. Seek the help of a local merchant in sizing a bat. You should never buy a bat without sizing it for your player. Bats with barrels larger than 2 ¼” may not be used. Bats manufactured specifically for T-ball play may not be used in the Rookie division or above.
- Cleats- Little League DOES NOT allow the use of steel cleats.
- Batting Helmet- Helmets must have a face guard on them.
NWLL will provide:
- Uniforms- NWLL will provide hats and team jerseys. Player will supply pants, belt and socks.
- FYI: NWLL has adopted a policy that player’s names are not to be printed on the uniforms
When purchasing a helmet please remember that they must have a face guard on them.
- Helmets must be worn in the batting cages at all times except during soft toss.
- Bullpen catcher must wear a helmet at all times.
