MLB Approves Protective Pitching Cap For On-Field Competition
MLB has approved the new isoBLOX protective pitchers' cap for on-field use beginning with the '14 season, isoBLOX parent company 4Licensing announced today. The cap demonstrated protection at speeds up to 90 mph on the front and front boss impact locations of the hat and 85 mph on side impacts. Use of the cap by MLB pitchers will be optional, with the gear expected to debut during Spring Training. The hat is slightly wider than the standard headgear (4Licensing).
