Equipment Buying Guide
Helmets- Helmets should fit snugly on the player's head and must have a face mask. Chin straps are no longer required. Specific sizes vary by manufacturer, but generally include tee helmets (6U), junior helmets (8U & 10U), and senior helmets (13U).
Bats- As a rule of thumb, when standing with arms extended, the knob of the bat should reach the crease in the player's wrist. Generally, this corresponds to a 25 or 26 inch bat for 6U, 26-28 inches for 8U, 27-29 inches for 10U, and 29-32 inches for 13U players.
Fielder's Mitts- For young players, the ball is big & the hands are small, the largest glove that a player can control is generally best. As players age, infielders will want gloves that are relatively small while outfielders & 1B will benefit from a larger mitt.
Cleats- The only restriction placed on cleats is that metal spikes are not allowed in any MGSL games. Multi sport athletes should note that softball style cleats may not be used when playing soccer.
* Please note that MGSL provides coaches with team helmets, bats, catchers gear & fielder's masks.
