When you're behind the plate,
you put yourself right in the line of fire, so it's important to stay
safe and protected. After all, you want to have a long and successful
carrier right? So when the pitch is coming in at 98mph, you need to have the best
protection where it matter most! No, we're not talking about a cup.
We're talking about your catcher's helmet and mask.
Concussions and other head injuries can unfortunately occur when you
put your body on the line for your team, like catchers regularly do.
From dropped balls to plays at the plate, your head can really take a
beating. That's why we only stock the highest quality,
most durable, and advanced catcher's helmets and masks, in both the
latest hockey-styles and traditional designs.
People argue all the time over the choice between tradition 2-piece
catcher's helmets and the new hockey-style constructions. These days, in
most high school leagues all over the country, catchers are required to
wear hockey-style masks, since they provide a larger area of coverage,
including neck, ear, and temple protection. In other leagues, and in the
pros, the choice is still left to personal preference.
No matter which style you prefer, what you need to look for in a
great catcher's mask is protection and performance. Like shopping for
any protective gear, you need to find the perfect balance between safety
and playability, since you want to be protected, but you never want your
gear holding you back or inhibiting your game. In the case of catchers
helmets and masks, you want to find a lightweight helmet with great
visibility in the mask, that still features full facial coverage and a
durable shell. This way, you can keep your eyes on the ball instead of
worrying about your helmet, when you're in the game.
Because we are committed to protecting our players and giving them
the edge they need, we only stock the highest-quality catcher's gear
from the best brands on the diamond. For youth, men, and women, we have
full lines of catcher's helmets from brands like All Star, Under Armour,
Nike, Mizuno and Rawlings, in every shape, size, color, and option. Each
brand offers different features, but every catcher's helmet sports
comfortable, padded, moisture wicking linings, durable outer shells, and
full face masks. The higher-end, pro level masks are typically lighter,
and more comfortable than the lower end helmets, and tend to feature
more breathable shells for a cooler game. What's important to understand
is that the most expensive helmet is not necessarily "the best" or the
best for your game. Be sure to browse all of our helmets and masks to find the one that's
right for you.
