Infield Mask

In 2017 the Twin City Angels board made the decision to mandate the use of infield masks, for anyone playing 1st base, 3rd base or Pitcher. The simple reason for this was player safety, the new bats being used have much more compression and accelerate the ball faster than most players can react. May 27th a player in the U12 age group playing 3rd base, was hit directly in the forehead above the eye knocking the mask off her head. The player was removed from the game for precautionary reasons and was able to resume playing the next inning, had she not been wearing her mask the outcome would have been much different. The photo shows how the impact of the line drive dented her mask, but prevented any injury to the player. Those of us that grew up not wearing masks when we played ball have questioned the need for the masks or that they are not part of ball, should be thankful that there are products now available to minimize injury.
