My daughter didn't get a chance to use this product because SA shipped us the wrong size. The mask pictured in the ad was not the one we received - it was sized for a toddler. We ordered the adult size mask thay my daughter actually tried on in the store. We exchanged this one for a different model, one that actually fit her head. She is happy with the new mask, although it is a different brand.
Bottom line - this should be required. Why are youth pitchers required to protect their privates but not their teeth/head? Catchers are padded to the gills, but a ball is batted back at a youth pitcher probably twice as fast as it's thrown, especially in today's hyper training leagued. I see 10 year olds hitting 300+ feet.
