What does my child need to play ball?

What does my child need to play ball?

The registration fee covers the cost of uniform shirt and hats for the boys and TeeBall players, it covers the uniform shirts and crazy socks for the girls, and park insurance. The only items athletes need to have is a ball glove and shoes (tennis shoes or rubber cleats are acceptable; no metal spikes or sandals). We highly recommend purchasing a batting helmet with face guard (and fielding face mask for the girl‘s leagues). ** Note: All girls softball leagues require a facemask on the batting helmet, in order to bat. The league does provide catcher’s gear. We do not encourage the sharing of some equipment such as helmets because helmets may not be the only thing getting shared. So we highly recommend each child have their own batting helmet. Other items you may want to purchase include: bat, ball, cleats, batting gloves, etc.. Remember to label all items with your child's name because we are not responsible for lost or stolen items.

However, we will have a lost and found at the concession stand if something does get misplaced and turned into us.
