Umpire headgear consists primarily of a face mask to protect against foul balls and wild pitches. Many umpires wear a ball cap underneath their facemask to keep the adjustable straps off their hair. Umpires are not as vulnerable to being struck on the tops of their heads, so a helmet is not always necessary, although they are available. Like catchers, umpires can opt for a hockey-style goalie mask that has a face mask attached to the helmet.
All Star, Wilson, Richardson, Diamond, Champro, Adams and Rawlings have a wide selection of all the umpire masks, hats and helmets you need. Also available are combo packages that include a chest protector, leg guards and various accessories.
