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. Stats for Protective Pitcher Headgear Trending: Older & Chilly
