If you watch old time baseball footage you will marvel at the missing piece of equipment that is essential for today’s hitters. You can not step into the batters box without a baseball helmet! With the speed that pitchers deliver the ball, you would be taking your life into your hands. The home plate umpire would not allow the game to continue. But back in the day, they didn’t have the technology, and apparently the good sense to protect themselves. But you can today.
The protection the baseball helmet provides is basically taken for granted these days. It’s more about the look and comfort that appeals to the players. They feel safety is a foregone conclusion. For the most part they are correct. However, there are some helmets that add safety features. The enhancements include having a facemask, or having a longer profile at the back of the helmet. In addition some helmets add material in or outside the helmet to absorb the impact of a wild pitch.
But for most of the baseball helmets the NOCSAE approval is all they need to show they are safe for use. So once a helmet has approval, it needs something to make it stand out. Something to make it more desirable to the consumer. If it doesn’t have the added safety features, why would you choose it over another? Well that is where the color and aesthetic design come in. You will be choosing from helmets with 2-tone looks, rare color combinations, and new finishes such as camouflage or matte finishes. The ability to match team colors goes a long way for helmet sales. Baseball bargains carries some of the most innovative batting helmets on the market. Whether you use the 2-toned Easton Z5 or the digi camo Under Armour Converge, your team will stand out on the field.
