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.

I applied it to my Diamond mask. In buying the 6”, I will say it is pretty big. Very durable, I attached mine with zip ties for a tight fit and it works really well. For my second throat guard, I bought a 4” and I am excited to put that on my back up mask to see how it works!

Like the length and ease of attachment. The second throat guard I've owned. The first one lasted a year before the snaps rusted and broke on a different brand.

I wear an All-Star helmet. This is the first time I've put a throat protector on my mask. I want to take all the precautions necessary. It looks good with my brand new Wilson West Vest chest protector.
