One of the first things you'll need is a baseball glove. There a ton of baseball gloves out there from numerous companies. They come in a wide variety of materials, sizes, colors, designs, and uses. A catcher uses a mitt, which is typically much larger than a traditional baseball glove, and designed to catch blazing fastballs from pitchers
You can't really play baseball without a bat! While there is a ton of fun to be had by just getting your glove on and playing catch with a friend, the game itself involves hitting and that means a bat.
There are many different kinds of bats and, like gloves, there are models for youth and adult. Youth bats have smaller barrels and are a lot lighter. Adult bats are heavier and have bigger barrels. It's easier to hit the ball more solidly with a bigger barrel, so my advice is to get a bat that's as big as you can handle. By handle I mean hold and swing comfortably, and it doesn't feel like a log in your hands.
There are aluminum and other types of metal bats and there are wood bats. Most leagues lower than professional baseball use metal bats. There are some nice advantages to metal; they hit the ball a little better and they don't break!
Wood bats are beautiful and can be made from a wide variety of wood. My favorite part of wood bats is the way it sounds when you hit a ball really hard, there's nothing like it!
If you're going to be playing in a game, or stepping in to try to hit live pitching, you'll need a helmet. Helmets are made of strong plastic material and have padding on the inside for safety and comfort.
There are lots of different colors and models to choose from, and they range in price from $15-$70. Helmets are rated by the miles per hour of the baseball they are designed to protect you from.
You've got to wear cleats if you're going to be running around on grass and dirt for a baseball game. Youth players wear cleats made of rubber, which don't grip the ground as well but are safer. Once players are in middle school and beyond, they wear metal cleats which provide much better traction.
Cleats come in a variety of shapes and sizes, and almost anything is allowed unless a coach requires that a whole team wears the same cleats. You can buy cleats based on your regular shoe size, although they feel quite a bit different so I recommend trying them on before you order them.
You'll need some batting gloves if you're going to be spending a lot of time swinging the bat. The bat will give you blisters on your hands, and vibration from the ball hitting the wrong spot on the bat will rattle your hands like crazy. Batting gloves will cure both of these things and will help you grip the bat better too!
