Baseball Catchers Gear
Baseball Catchers Gear
Over the years we have seen an increase in the demand for safe equipment. More research continues to show the alarming effects of concussions and other injuries catchers might face. So, with more caution comes more safety. So, baseball catchers gear today, as a result of this, is much more safe than it once was. Baseball catchers gear was once extremely simple. All catchers needed was something o cover their legs, chest, and face. Concussions didn't matter, so why try to innovate with something safe. Catchers wore the bare minimum back in the day, and it wasn't until the 90's that gear started changing.
But, the first time that players saw started using the hockey style mask was the 2000's. Charlie O'Brien was the first to debut this product that has come so far from its origins. The hockey style mask, obviously, derives from the goalie masks' in hockey. This style does much more to protect the entire head. Rather than just covering the face, this mask covers the face, ears, and the back of the head. This style became mandatory in youth leagues, and now there is a major shift in the MLB for catchers to start using these helmets. This is because they offer more protection, and are even now more comfortable.

Yes, these helmets can even be more comfortable to some. Some of the material used is very technologically advanced for supreme comfort as well. Companies use materials that wick away moisture in order to keep players dry behind the dish. They also have used science to determine where to put vents in the helmet, so the parts of the head that cool the body are exposed to air flow. So, if this seems like your type of helmet, then go get one.
You cannot forget about the leg guards and chest protectors too. These pieces of equipment now use technologies to keep you warm, increase safety, and even mobility. Leg guards now strategically fit players where they are most mobile. They are also very lightweight, so you can barely even tell they're on. Chest protectors now even have technologies that deaden the ball, so when catchers block it, it doesn't bounce away. This also decreases the amount of force you feel from the ball, so you can be fearless behind the plate. Baseball catchers gear today is lightyears ahead of the equipment used in the early 20th century.
