There is no rule here. More protection is a personal choice. An athletic store or a teammate can help you choose the right one.

i dont think that they would have to, but definatley wear a cup. i know catchers have to but pitchers should because a teammate was pitching without a cup and got a line drive there, he was down for 15 min. i was pitching one time and got hit there by a line drive and it shattered my cup. i shudder to think what it would feel like if i didnt have a cup on.

What happens if a team has all their pitchers ejected in a game?

If a team has all its pitchers ejected in a game, a position player will have to take the mound, assuming they have enough position players left to finish a game. Generally speaking, catchers have the strongest, most accurate arms of the position players, so I would assume the backup catcher would come in and finish the game to the best of his ability. If a team is unable to put at least 8 players on the field, the game is forfeited.
