If it possibly could, it looks even more freaky in this shot. Good grief!

I do not think that I could work with a partner if he were wearing one of these! I would be too worried that my light saber would malfunction!

You can get a prescription for that now. If you get it on the internet from Canada, you don't need a prescription.

I wonder if the shield/visor is replaceable. A good foul crushing the plastic shield against the cage could crack or break it.

I wonder how long it will be before I see someone on the field with it.

I'll bet that catchers will wear it soon. It's polycarbonate, like a motorcycle windshield, which won't even crack from a rock or other debris at high speed. So I doubt that a deflected baseball would crack it. It would get scratched, perhaps, but it's essentially shatterproof, and I'm sure it's replaceable.

We need a chart so that we know which color shirt, undershirt and ball bag to wear with each helmet.

Hey all,

They look more like a virtual reality helmet.
