Batting Helmets for Baseball
Your batting helmet is an essential tool for your game. Select a helmet that fits comfortably and ensures the protection you need at the plate. Consider the different kinds of helmets available before making your selection:
Deal Ear-Flap Helmets: This design features a hard plastic shell with extended, molded ear protection that covers the side of your head and temple area. These helmets are frequently used in youth baseball, though players at all levels use dual ear-flap helmets
Combo Helmets: This design features the increased protection of a facemask that better shields you from the ball. These helmets are used by players at all skill levels
Helmet Accessories: Outfit your helmet with chin straps, decal kits and other accessories designed for your game
The right baseball helmet delivers a lightweight fit and feel with the extra coverage and protection you need. Baseball helmets are available in everything from sleek black to your team's vibrant colors.
Expect quality from some of the top names in the sport, like Rawlings®, adidas®, Eason®, and many more.
Your helmet is vital for your safety on the diamond. Always keep in mind fit and comfort when selecting a helmet. Ensure that your helmet fits comfortably and shields glare for better vision while batting. Consider these factors:
Weight: A well-constructed helmet does not need to be heavy. Look for a lightweight helmet that offers protection without restraint
Ventilation: Comfort is essential when selecting the right helmet. Look for ventilation vents on the side or top of the helmet that allows for proper air circulation on the diamond – so you stay safe and feel comfortable
Sizing: To be effective, a helmet must fit properly on the player's head. Most baseball helmets are one-size-fits-all. Some helmets are available with an adjustable, dial-fit system to easily modify the size of your gear. A helmet that is too loose will not properly absorb shock
Safety Certifications: Keep in mind that your baseball helmet should meet standards set by the National Operating Committee for Standards for Athletic Equipment
Switching up the look of your baseball helmet is simple. Many helmets come with sticker modification kits that let you create your own distinct look.
Though many helmets come in standard sizes, always consult with a manufactures' sizing chart to ensure that your helmet will fit you properly.
