Equipment Needs & Requirements

For those new to the OPBA, you must provide your own:

  • Protective cup (required for all boys)
  • Baseball/softball glove
  • Cleats - optional (soccer or football are ok as well)
  • Batting glove(s) - optional
  • Under uniform chest protector - optional
  • Sliding shorts and knee pads - optional


The OPBA will provide uniforms to all players (i.e. shirt, pants, belt, hat, & socks).  Fall ball uniforms include only shirts and pants.  

The OPBA will provide coaches with bases, balls, bats, catchers equipment, training aids, and equipment bags.

Please note:  As you may know, bat standards are changing within different baseball organizations.  The OPBA has decided that we will transition into this change slowly (by Spring 2019).  That means that while the OPBA issued bats, those provided in equipment bags, might be new, your children are allowed to use their personal bats from the spring and fall seasons of 2017.  
The OPBA will be transitioning to the new USA Baseball bat performance standard.  For the 2018 season only, bats must have one of the following bat standards stamped on the bat:

USSSA BPF 1.15 (old standard)
Or
U
SA Baseball (new standard)
14U can use either BBCOR or wood bats.
