Easton Youth

Catcher's mask hurts throwing it off?

My son got new catcher's gear and we purchased the Easton Youth set. It has the hockey style mask which I think offers great protection to the head. However, when he goes to "throw it off" in the instance of a pop fly, the ridge digs into the base of his head and hurts. Any suggestions? I'd rather not purchase another mask since this came as a set, and is brand spanking new. Is there an adjustment or technique? I've seen plenty of people wear these so it's got to work some how.

Thanks!

well, one of the problems with the hockey style masks is that they do not fit everyones head.

since the adjustments on masks generally is less than 1 inch on circular size this problem can occur.

i played catcher all my life and still play in adult leagues. I wear a natural mask but when i used the hockey style i had to use the stealth because the others would catch my ears or jaw. People have different head shapes and legnths of thier face which can cause problems.

when buying a mask its important to try it on in store first.
its possible hes throwing it off at an angle instead of straight back.

Besides as a catcher, you should only throw the mask off when the ball is on the ground to help you locate it. throwing your mask off to catch pop ups or throw out runners is a waste of time and should be done with the mask on.
