First, an important disclaimer. Let me just say that this is not a commercial endorsement. Askcoachwolff.com does not receive any compensation from Force3 Pro Gear, nor do we have any relationship with the company.
That being said, if your son or daughter plays baseball or softball, and is a catcher, or for that matter, an umpire, you might want to check out the Force3 Defender mask as a marked improvement in protecting them from concussions. The mask has been adopted by pro and amateur several leagues, including the South Atlantic Baseball League and Babe Ruth baseball and Cal Ripken Baseball.
What makes the Force3 Defender mask different from traditional masks is that any blow to the mask, such as from a fouled pitch, is strongly cushioned by strong and resilient coils. It’s worth taking a look. Check out the website at www.force3progear.com.
