Baseball Catcher's Helmets
Catchers are involved in the action during every pitch. The strike zone is typically around a catcher's chest and head area. So if a catcher misses the ball, there's a good chance it could hit them in the head or face. To prevent any major head injuries, catchers wear long helmets. They come with metal facemasks around the mouth are for protection, and have an eye opening just wide enough to see without obstruction. The inside of the helmet is padded with foam for protection and has vents or holes to keep a catcher cool during the action. Catchers helmets are usually easily slipped on and off so that if a catcher needs to catch a foul ball or talk, he can.
