Baseball Head Protection
The Ball cap liner is the most comfortable and advanced baseball head protection on the market.
Cliff Floyd, former Montreal Expos outfielder/first baseman and world series winner partnered with Adam Pauze and Spark Innovations, a product development company in Toronto Canada to design the Ball Cap Liner.
After 17 years in MLB cliff had dodged many bullets whizzing by his head and had a few hits you really remember but we were all used to taking these risks. We have seen so many accidents in the MLB and also with our children and it’s time to protect our youth. Teeth and broken noses we can fix but not brains. “We needed a product that is useful and doesn’t provide a false sense of security for both the players and parents”.
Head Protective Liner
The baseball head protection, Ball Cap Liner, is a patented design that is not only strong but sleek. Cliff Floyd understands that there is a lot of tradition in the baseball sport and the look of any protective wear is important. The ball Cap Liner is to be worn underneath a baseball cap. The technology behind this head protective liner has a lot of science. It has D3O, a ground breaking impact protection material and a very hard metal replacement outer shell.
D3O is a ground breaking impact protection shock absorbing material. D3O is an extremely clever, globally unique technology that is based on the innovation of capturing the benefits of non-Newtonian shear thickening material in polymers that can then be engineered for real world impact protection solutions. These enhanced properties offer a number of different performance benefits depending on the base polymer used and the intended application. D3O’s global patents ensure that no other company can offer the same type of protection.
Metal Replacement: The materials in this product range are based on semi-crystalline polyamides with partially aromatic content. This material is supplied as in granulate form for further processing in injection-moulding or extrusion processes using conventional, commercially-available equipment and moulds.
Head Safety for Baseball
With only about ¼” of thickness it would seem impossible that the Ball Cap Liner BCL could pass the youth baseball and softball frontal impact standards, but it did! When taking about head safety for baseball this liner is Perfectly engineered, Space age materials, certified performance, extreme comfort, only 4.3 ounces, invisible, exclusive temple protection and competitively priced.
According to the Southern Impact Research Center, the authority on impact protection and testing in the US. “Almost all ball head impacts in baseball are glancing blows however the temple area is the most vulnerable part of the human body and a direct impact at 30 MPH can kill you.” There is no reason that all players and coaches on the field at all levels are not wearing them.
In a sport with so much tradition and strict rules such as baseball we offer the BCL that is completely invisible with no temple protection.
