The new headwear for MLB pitchers

protective helmet caps

ESPN is reporting MLB is set to roll out a new set of protective headwear for pitchers in Spring Training, as 20 pitchers will get a new hybrid helmet cap which was made collaboratively by MLB and the MLB Players Association.

The product is designed to be lighter than the previous incarnations, which drew criticism for how they looked (See Mets pitcher below). The new version is said to resemble visors.

Some protective helmet caps are available for youth baseball too. Check them out here.
