RULES FOR USE - PLEASE READ
We have quoted all the different organisations that we could find below. These are what the rules state. The hardest part is what the umpire interprets and enforces them. Some of them are very clear and state only clear visors can be worn, where others do not mention. Please check with team coach or local leagues for an answer if you are unsure.
The visors may not be game legal in some leagues, but they are easily removable and can be used for practice.
USSSA Slow Pitch
Sec. 13. PROTECTIVE GEAR: As a general rule, USSSA continues its long standing policy of permitting players to determine the use of protective equipment when they deem appropriate. Game conditions (temperature, equipment, rain, wind, visibility, field conditions, humidity, etc.) vary greatly from game to game and from field to field. In addition, the relative and absolute experience and skill levels of teams and players will vary from player to player and from team to team. Thus, USSSA encourages players to utilize any protective equipment that they deem appropriate. Such protective gear will be allowed in USSSA sanctioned play, unless by rule or by director/ umpire ruling that such.
USSSA Fast Pitch
Sec 2. CATCHER’S Equipment
In all divisions, if an eye shield is worn attached to the catcher’s helmet, it must be constructed of a moulded, rigid material that is clear and permits 100 percent (no tint) allowable light transmission.
Defensive Face Masks – While the use of defensive face masks is optional, if they are worn, they must meet the transparency requirements applicable to batting and catching helmets. If an eye shield is attached, it must be constructed of a moulded, rigid material that is clear and permits 100 per cent (no tint) allowable light transmission.
