There have been advances to make a concussion proof helmet in recent years, however there is still no such thing as a completely concussion-proof baseball batting helmet. However it is imperative you find a clean and safe baseball helmet to help prevent serious brain injuries and any sort of skin conditions. Below we will dive into what you need to look for in a helmet when choosing one, and how to keep that helmet clean and safe throughout the season.
Get the Right Size
One of the first things you want to do when getting a baseball helmet is to make sure you are getting the right size, and one way to do this is to try it on in-person. Another thing you should consider is to get an accurate measurement of your head before purchasing your baseball helmet. In order to find out the accurate head size you should wrap a soft tape measure around your head, just above your eyebrows. Another thing you need to keep in mind when attempting to get the right sized helmet is that sizes are going to vary from different companies and manufacturers.
Make Sure it Fits Correctly
You should make sure whatever size batter’s helmet you decide on is a solid general fit for your head. This means when you put on your helmet it should fit snugly and there should be no space between the pads of the helmet and your head. You should also not wear a baseball cap underneath your helmet because it will affect the way it fits your head and the overall safety of the helmet. Another thing to consider when trying to make sure your helmet fits correctly and is safe for you is to make sure your hairstyle throughout the season will not affect how your helmet fits. The last two things you need to make sure you consider, and arguably the most important, is how much of your head the helmet covers and if your vision is affected or not.
Protect Your Helmet
Before putting your helmet on at any time, the first thing you want to do is make sure there are no cracks or breaks on any part of the helmet. One way to prevent this from happening is taking care of your helmet and not carelessly putting it in spots where it could get stepped or sat on and crack. Another important thing you need to do to protect and keep your helmet clean is to store your baseball or softball batting helmet correctly. This means you need to store it in a room that is neither too hot nor too cold and it should be a room that would not give the helmet direct sunlight. Last thing you need to do to protect your helmet is make sure that you do not decorate your helmet at all because it can affect its safety.
Clean Your Baseball Helmet Regularly
The most important thing you need to do as a baseball player is to make sure that you regularly clean your baseball helmets, as well as the rest of your baseball gear.
