*Note: MINUS (-) DROP: Refers to the differential between the length and weight of a bat. As an example a (-)10 bat would be a 29" length 19 oz weight bat.
 
The lighter the bat -- the better. A “drop” -10 to -13 bat is great for young players.


Gloves should not be too big. It is best to buy a lower price glove in lower leagues and get a good fitting glove every few years.
 
**All bats must be Little League approved (T-Ball excluded).


Do not buy a bat that is not on this list. Bats will be checked by League officials.
