Did someone release a hard plastic plate that could be put into the hat as a way of protecting pitchers against concussions from line drives hit back at them? I remember a pitcher for the Ray's had such a hat. But it was bulky, cumbersome, and looked like he was a toddler wearing his dad's size 8 lid.

Not sure if this would work, but maybe worth looking into? From Gerry Davis Sports.

Thanks. Just sent a message to Gerry Davis sports FB page asking him what his experience with it has been.  Fit and hat coming off issues.

He might be getting paid to use/endorse it. Plus, he's selling them, so..............................

Oh, and he also put out the Davishield, so...............................Just sayin'

"Good for 50 games of one season. Whichever comes first". 

So it "wears out" after a year? Strange.  I guess the plastic dries out?

I live in a desert and plastic goes quick out here.  Heck, the glue melted on the toes of my NB base shoes.  I ordered that con-cushion today.

Makes sense the more I think about it. Plastic eyeglass frames get dry and brittle over time....  lose their elasticity. Same principle here.

I stopped buying any type of plastic lawn furniture.  After a few years they fall apart when you sit in them.  I believe heat is also the culprit for the handles on my F3 equipment bag.  A couple ripped in the middle of the handles, not at the seams.

I refuse to admit whether or not I  have personally fallen on my ass from this. But I can say I know people that have. Lol

Why are we talking about this in the Mag thread?  Anyway, I have it.  I like it a lot.  And despite the "50 games" i will use it beyond that.  Its not as though at game 51 it is useless or worse...going to hurt you if you get hit.

Here's an interesting question to tie this all back to the Mag. Does your Gerry Davis pad insert thing work with the Mag? or is the angle of the top pad somewhat restrictive to using this device?

Good question...it does work.  Only difference is it takes less Velcro to get around the unit.  Now, there is some heft to it and considering how light the Mag is...makes it feel a bit out of balance.  However, I think it is a really good addition to the mag up top.

We're talking about it because some have brought up concern w/ the upper pad on the MAG.

Some mentioned cap inserts.  I'm thinking of one of these to wear with a traditional mask.  They have a frontal version and a version that protects about 85% of the area under the cap.  Seems interesting to me.

Didn't even know these existed .... hmmmmmm .........

Received it yesterday and installed it, properly I hope.  Adjusted the top strap of harness and it fits fine.  Only issue is I have to use 2 of the 50 games on jv and freshmen fall ball this coming Tuesday.

I'll admit it.  Last time I bought it.  I had even lost weight.

Let's circle back to the All Star mask, with the lousy forehead pad, shall we?

Can a Team Wendy pad be put in its place? I know the bottom won't work, but can the top one do the job for umpiring duties?

Why wouldn't Team Wendy work on the bottom mask pad?

A Team Wendy upper pad works great in the All Star Mag. In fact, the Team Wendy upper pad is actually a little bit denser and thicker than the stock pad and creates just a little bit more standoff distance at the top, making it easier to take the mask on and off while wearing a 6 stitch cap

Now the downside is that you have a random TW bottom pad.

If you look at the bottom of Wolf’s mask, you can see that he uses the TW bottom pad for

his MAGs.

      I can understand the scoreboard being wrong in counting the pitch in the balk that occurred during the sequence (looking for that video).... but I find it hard to believe that this has happened so often on a professional field in the last few years.  
      Caveat:  NOT THAT I'M PERFECT, because I've lost it too, and I've rung up guys on strike 2, it happens ....but ........   IT SURE AS HELL shouldn't take this long ......

      This play is reviewed and overturned, fine, ...but.... what caught my eye was the positioning of CG on this play.  He lets the ball turn him to the play, but never moves into the play.  Isn't he a little too far?
       
      Just asking .......
