What mask is this?

Recommended Posts

About a year and a half ago a person from my other job said he hadn't umpired in forever, and gave me his old gear. Included was this mask frame (no pads or harness) and I can't figure out what make/model it is. It looks a lot like an All-star or Rawlings, but I haven't found any exact matches. Any ideas?

With the chisel-point chin guards, it's got to be a Rawlings or +POS or something like that. 

After looking at it more, it may be Rawlings because the old +POS had a wider chisel-point and then one that touched.

Pic below is the old +POS Jim Evans model.

@Young_Ump - is your mask lightweight or super-heavy?  Honig's had one with that shape and chisel-point.  I think it was hollow steel because it was lighter than most of those old masks.   Plus, the Honig's had the rounded chin vs. the more standard square.

Agree ...it's a Rawlings with the coating taken off!  You're welcome! :wave:

I may be wrong, but I'm sticking with Honig's.  I don't remember where Rawlings ever used a rounded chin.

......................speaking of @MadMax, I don't recall seeing many posts from him as of late.  Is he on sabbatical? @KenBAZ, everything ok in the land of sun and fun?

      Was watching the game last night and was wondering if anybody knows who the manufacturer is for the mask the plate umpire was wearing last night?  And the throat guard as well?
      And wasn't it great to watch live baseball again?

      I've seen a lot of umpires take their mask off with their right hand; both partners I've worked with and even high level umpires online.
      I thought you weren't supposed to use your right and I personally only use my left hand and would never go right.
      But it okay to use your right hand? If you're an evaluator/assigner, would you ding someone for using their right?

      Does anyone have any Wilson mask harnesses they don't want? I know they aren't that popular but I like them and need some for back-up masks.
