Questions about this Product

Q. Because of extended mask frames, do I need a throat protector?

A. Yes. While the extended frame design on most masks will protect your adam's apple from most missed or foul balls, it's easy for balls in the dirt to bounce up underneath the mask. Get more protection with at least a 4" inch throat protector.

John Murphy, Senior League Umpire - 6+ Years

Q. "A ball was fouled off the ground and hit the (4 inch) throat protector causing it to swing up and strike my Adam's apple. Do you think the 6" throat protector would help to prevent this by swinging and hitting the chest protector instead."
A. "For some the 4" works better. Some say that the 6" sometimes gets 'stuck' on their chest protector, but some prefer the 6". The MLB umpires do typically wear the larger so maybe they're on to something, and it is without question more protective due to the added length. I would try the 6" and decide which works best for you.

MLB Umpire Hit in Throat While Wearing a Helmet

While a mask or helmet does extend down some in the front, there are still angles from below from a batted ball that can allow a baseball or softball through. A throat guard may have helped in this situation.

Like the nylon straps and snaps on the Wilson Throat Guard - just switched to this 6" model on my Force3 Mask.

I previously owned the 4 inch and ordered another one for my "backup mask" but this will be traded out for my everyday mask. I thought it would be too long but it's not at all. Perfect length.
