Pants - Your child doesn't have to have any particular kind of pants or shorts. Many players, however, get a standard (inexpensive) pair of grey youth baseball pants like these.
Practice at Home! Your child's skill improvement will be much faster if s/he practices at home. "Practice makes permanent," though, so be sure your child is practicing the right way. Below are some tips for batting and throwing.
Here's a video that shows most of these steps.
1. Align Knuckles - line up the "door knocker" knuckles on both hands. These are the knuckles that you would use to knock on a door - the middle knuckles that bend. This may feel odd at first, but it avoids having to rotate the hands during the swing.
2. Stand on the line - stand on an imaginary line (or draw one in the sand) that points directly towards the pitcher. Standing on the line, you should be able to touch the middle of the plate with the tip of the bat. Feet should be about shoulder width apart and knees should be slightly bent. The body should be comfortable and loose - not tense or awkward feeling.
4. Stride - Shift weight to your front foot. You can do this with just a shift or take a small step (just a couple of inches).
5. Swing -
Here's a video that covers most of these parts of the swing.
