Protective Pitcher Headgear
The Easton-Bell Pitching Helmet Prevents Head Injuries in Baseball

The Easton-Bell Pitching Helmet could significantly drop injury incidents amongst baseball athletes, hopefully changing the climate of the industry. There’s a reason why athletes only stay in their particular sport for a short period of time (in comparison to other careers) and it doesn’t just have to do with age—it often has more to do with physical injury affecting one’s ability to play.

Although it might look like a rather futuristic design, you thankfully won’t have to wait 20 years before seeing the Easton-Bell Pitching Helmet on the pitching mound. Easton-Bell hopes to have it in stores by this fall.

Made out of a super light-weight material designed by Absorb Energy, the Easton-Bell Pitching Helmet will not hinder a pitcher’s natural performance. With that aside, I think that helmets should simply be made mandatory.
