Shock Doctor NEW Youth Baseball Protective Equipment - BATTER UP!

We hear statistics all the time about the staggering numbers of injuries sustained during youth sports. Earlier this month, The Youth Sports Safety Alliance presented a National Action Plan of ten items to Congress aimed at preventing injury and death on the youth athletic field. ( Among them was a recommendation that parents should educate themselves in the potential benefits and risks of optional protective equipment. With baseball season kicking off, we wanted to make sure your readers were informed about Shock Doctor’s  latest baseball protective accessories for kids ages six and up.

In addition to the wrist guards, compression shorts and sleeves, elbow guards, padded sliding shorts, and flex cups, take note of the Velocity Shockskin Baseball Youth Sleeveless Shirt below with the chest pad, as it was on the biggest sellers last season.
