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.

First time owning a throat guard after all these years. Took one to the throat guard direct like as if it hit my mask.
