Batting Helmets

Hello ball players!

This week we had a case of a batter/base runner who was hit on the head by a ball thrown to first base. This is an occupational hazard of playing ball but the risk can be reduced by the use of helmets.

Our league does not mandate the use of helmets for batters and baserunners and we have no plans to do so.

However, if any player wishes to use one, there is nothing preventing it. The league has a very small supply of helmets (3). If you want to reserve one for your use for the rest of the season, contact our VP Operations, Peter Atkinson.  Peter can be reached by email at . The helmets will be allocated on a first come, first served basis.

Stay safe out there and enjoy the rest of the season.

Robin Boyd, League President
