Crasche™ New York has launched an effective, yet stylish product that can be inserted inside a baseball cap to help prevent head injuries.
The new Crasche protective elements are ideal for all baseball players. They are designed to fit into your own baseball cap and can be removed. Laboratory test results have proven that the protective elements can significantly reduce the impact of a batted baseball.
The outer layers of the inserts are composed of a strong polycarbonate plastic, the same material used to make bulletproof glass. The inner layers are made of neoprene rubber, which is also used in making wet suits, and contain a series of air chambers that help cushion the impact and help spread the force of the impact over the entire insert.
Just this year, two Major League Baseball pitchers were hospitalized after being hit by line drives to the head. It is evident that protective elements inserted into baseball caps can be very useful in helping to protect players against head injuries.
“The protective elements fit into your own baseball cap, and can be removed. They offer a very high degree of impact protection, as the lab tests have demonstrated. It’s an ideal product for young players, and even for the pros,” says Robert Emmett Cleva, the creator of Crasche hat. “We have met with Major League Baseball, and we are working towards meeting their standards for impact resistance.”
A set of four elements is $19.95.
