Protective Gear

The player who needs the most baseball protective equipment is the catcher. This defensive player is not only the one who catches everything the pitcher hurls in their direction, but they are also positioned directly behind a swinging bat.

One ball to the face or one bounce off the ground onto a shin could be the gateway to injury. It is recommended that catchers use a special mitt designed just for that position and should wear a helmet with a face mask, long-bodied chest protector, and shin guards. Another position that needs shielding is the batter. Wearing a tight-fitting helmet is important in the batter’s box, while waiting your turn on deck, and while running the bases. Getting hit in the head with a ball without a helmet will almost certainly end your play, at least for the day.

Wearing the right gear is important at every age and every skill level. Even the pros need to wear baseball protective equipment. The home plate umpire needs the right gear to keep from getting hurt as well. Most often, the home plate umpire needs a helmet and face mask combo, a chest protector, leg guards, and plate shoes. Without all of this gear, the home plate umpire is at risk for serious injury by a swinging bat or by an uncaught fastball.

It is not enough to simply wear the equipment -- it must also fit correctly to work the most effectively. Buying these items in your size is essential to your safety. Once you start to outgrow it, it is time to shop for new gear. Additionally, there should never be holes or cracks in any of your protective gear. Weakened or compromised gear will not protect you to the highest degree, so you should inspect your gear before and after every game. Replace any damaged gear in plenty of time for you next game.
