These pitching helmets by Easton-Bell are way overdue if you ask us. Especially if you look at statistics like Gunnar Sandberg, a high school kid that got hit in the head with a line drive had to be put in a medically induced coma to reduce brain swelling. Well the kids fine now, but what about future cases. The helmet is meant to be worn over your hat and the helmet is made from expanded polystyrene that's super lightweight and good at absorbing energy. Though the MBA hasn't declared any guidelines yet, we can bet that you will see these futuristic helmets in the future.
