The chest protector is a key piece for not only protection, but the fundamental skills required by a catcher. As a catcher, you not only want a chest protector that will protect, but will also help keep the ball in control and near the catcher’s body.
First and foremost, protection is of the utmost importance. You want to make sure that the padding covers enough of your chest, but remains comfortable and doesn’t ride up. Also, of course, that when the ball makes impact with your chest, the force of impact dissipates throughout the protector. This is why at BaseballMonkey.com™, we are sure to carry the most protective and high-end gear to provide the best protection.
Secondly, it’s important to keep the ball in control when it hits the protector. If a ball comes in and hits the dirt, you want to smother that ball and knock it down. It is easiest to do this when the chest protector has deadening properties, to keep the ball from rebounding off the chest too far.
To give you the best combination of protection and control, we carry the most popular, high-end brands like: All-Star, Rawlings, Easton, Wilson, Champro, Schutt, Diamond, Under Armour, Mizuno, Louisville Slugger and Nike. All of these great brands at even better prices online. So whether you are looking for adult catcher’s chest protectors, intermediate catcher’s chest protectors and youth catcher’s chest protectors for baseball, we have what you need at a desirable price.
