It depends if you are sliding a lot but you should because it gives more protection.
softball players don't always wear long pants, so they wear sliding pads or shorts to avoid cutting their knees or leg.
No they are not the same thing. Sliding pants or "sliders" are padded to allow you some protection when you're sliding on the ground.
You wear protective gear so you dont get seriously injured
they usually wear BDUs or tactical gear, those pants offer more storage for gear

Pair of sweat pants and a T-shirt.
My catcher gear last year was Under Armour. Under Armour is the best catcher gear money can buy. All the other brands doesn't protect the chest as well. The Under Armour chest piece is broader on the shoulders and has more padding. I suggest the Under Armour catcher gear.

Reverse gear is spur because it has to slide, sliding mesh gearbox uses spur gears. Because if it was constant mesh gear (helical) it could not slide in and out, therefore it could not go in the opposite direction of rotation.
To play softball you need cleats, pants, socks, and a jersey (or T-shirt if its practice). Also shorts, sliding shorts, and sliding pads may be substituted for pants. You will want the sliding pads to cover your knees so when you slide you wont get hurt as easily.
There are many companies and websites that offer left handed softball gloves for sale. Some of these companies that offer the gloves for sale are Epic Sports and Rawlings Gear.
The equipment is similar to baseball gear except that the balls and gloves are larger. The bat is also weighter differently.
