Bats & Gloves

Baseball Bat Size Chart

For those of you looking to buy a bat for your child, this is a GENERAL guide to bat size.  It obviously depends on the size and strength of the child, but the biggest mistake we see parents make is buying a bat that is TOO BIG for their child.  It is wise to error on the smaller.size. Another rule of thumb is have the child hold the bat straight out in front of them (as if they are pointing at the pitcher with it) just above the knob, and count to ten.  If they can hold the bat out firmly without serious effort, then the bat is more than likely the right size. We suggest you buy the bat and let your child’s coach look at it before you remove the plastic wrapper to insure it is the right size for your child.

Baseball Glove Size Chart

No hard-fast rule on glove sizes. A glove made of leather is much easier for a child to “break in.”  A vinyl or synthetic glove will never break in and will make it much more difficult for the younger player to learn to catch the ball.  Just like bats, start off smaller and grow into a larger glove.

Age Suggested Size (inches)
5 - 6 9-1/2 - 10-1/2
7 - 9 10-1/2 - 11-1/2
