As a non-catcher, I have been so impressed with how quickly Force3’s helmets and masks have spread throughout the MLB. The company started by former Braves catcher Tyler Flowers and minor league ump Jason Klein focuses on protecting catchers and umpires. And who’s more important to baseball than the catcher and umpire? Without them, you can’t have a game. Their head protection is now worn by Salvador Perez and Yasmani Grandal, among many others.
I’ve heard from multiple Big League catchers that its a true difference-maker for them as they try to avoid head injuries, so I asked Force3 to send me a mask so that I could show you a little about what this system can do for catchers and umpires.
Based on what I’ve heard from catchers, if I was a catcher or someone that I loved was a catcher, this would be the mask that I would choose. Get it for $200 at Force3ProGear.com.
