Gloves are the one item that a parent must purchase for their child in order to play in Laconia Little League.  Bats are optional, whereas the League provides enough bats for your child to play.  The Bat guidelines are for those that choose to purchase a bat for their child.

Gloves
When properly adjusted, a glove should fit fairly snugly. Allow room for a batting glove. It is a good idea for most players to wear a batting glove inside their fielders glove to absorb moisture.

Bats

Below is a rough guide for bat selection. It is simply a place to start and depends not only on the size of the player but the level of competition (better pitching may require a lighter bat). It is better to err on the light side rather than the heavy side. Today's power hitters in the major leagues use lighter bats than power hitters of yesterday.
