you can usually buy a two piece catchers mask seperately. i bought my face mask from dicks sporting goods, but i bought the helmet from a different supplier. you can do an internet search for "catchers skull caps", and there will be some different sites to provide you the products that you will be looking for. i perfer a two piece catchers mask because, when your throwing down to 2nd base the mask flies off your head, but when using the hockey style masks: they tend to stay on your head and to block your vison because they spin on your head.
Well, every player is required to wear a cup. College catchers have to wear a chest protector, shin guards, and a mask. Catchers can wear two different types of masks, you can wear a skull cap and a pull over mask, or you can wear a full helmet that covers your whole head.. Most professional catchers wear a mask, because it is light, and easy to take off quickly.
Yes it is in my opinion.
He has a Nike mask with a titanium wire frame that is only available to "Sponsored Nike Athletes" at this time.
Catchers mask, chest protector, shinguards, and a cup.
Jorge Posada uses a Wilson A2000 catchers mitt.
Yeah it will. Oakley visors will fit into Rawlings masks
I think wilson and rawlings are the most common, but nike is showing up more and more
Depends. Most catchers who wear a hockey style mask do not remove it to catch a pop-up. If you use an old-school mask, you wait to throw the mask until you have an idea as to the direction the pop-up is heading. You don't throw the mask right away since you do not want to end up tripping on the mask if you have to backtrack.
No. The first catcher's mask is credited as having been invented in 1876 by Fred Thayer who modified a fencer's mask for the catcher of the Harvard baseball team. Click on the 'History of the Catcher's Mask' link below to read about the history and see pictures of the early catcher's masks.
