Main- Gloves, bats, helmets, batting gloves, and baseballs. For A Catcher- Catchers glove, Catchers mask, chest protector, shin pads (also cover the knee) and when you get older sometimes you use a special catching glove that has extra padding so when the pitchers start to throw harder it doesn't sting as bad.

It's a matter of personal preference. Some such as Alex Rodriguez of the New York Yankees and I believe Jason Vartiek of the Boston Red Sox choose to wear high socks over their pants and others prefer to have their pants come over their socks. Some players are very superstitious and change their look when they are in a slump and when they start hitting they keep that look. Others just always wear their clothes the same way. Its the same as when players use different batting gloves with different colors and designs as well as cleats and baseball mitts. Its just a matter of preference.

If you want a more complete answer, most wide receivers did not wear gloves from the start of football through the 70s and into the 80s. It was a relative rarity until the mid-80s, and it was a big deal that every member of the Redskins "Posse" wore them in the mid-late 80s. Even then, the gloves were nothing like the heavily tackified and sticky gloves that players today wore. Basically, the trend started in the late 80s, but they have become more and more of a tool used for making acrobatic, one-handed catches since the 90s and early 2000s. A fair number of players have admitted to it significantly aiding them in catching the ball today.
