Baseball Gloves
Fit the Glove to Your Hand
Youth models are smaller to help kids maintain control
Avoid the urge to buy a bigger glove that you'll grow into
Kids under the age of 8 should stick with a glove from 9 to 11 inches
Beginners also benefit from the added control that they get from smaller gloves
Bats
Manufacturers have done a great job in balancing the bat's weight to its length
Most bats are weighted in ounces. Many bats have a weight-to-length ratio, often shown as -4, -6, etc. This basically means a 34-inch bat with a -6 ratio weighs 28 ounces
Lighter bats are recommended bat to generate a quicker swing increases control, while also reducing the risk of injury
Have the child hold the bat out ten inches with their throwing arm for 10 seconds if it is comfortable this would be an ideal weight.
