Catcher’s Mask Safety

While there’s no concussion-proof helmet, a catcher’s helmet can help protect your athlete from serious brain injuries. The following information from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) will help you learn what to look for, and what to avoid when picking out a helmet for your baseball or softball catcher.

Start with the Right Size:
Bring your athlete with you when buying a new helmet to make sure its a good fit.

To determine the size of your athlete’s head, wrap a soft tape measure around the athlete’s head, just above their eyebrows and ears. Make sure the tape measure stays level from front to back.

Helmet sizes tend to vary from brand to brand, so it’s important to check out the helmet brand’s fit and sizing charts to find out what helmet size fits your athlete’s head size.
