Eastlake Little League from Washington pulled out another win Tuesday night against Tennessee and are set to play again tomorrow at 3 p.m. Eastern on ESPN against Connecticut. Be sure to watch the only Little League in the World Series to be given GelDefender head pads!


*Scientists have no conclusive evidence as to whether or how the reduction of g forces during impacts reduces the number or degree of concussions and head injuries. GelDefenderTM products provide supplemental padding as well as cooling and comfort benefits when used with helmets and caps. Participants in activities in which head impacts can occur should always use tested and approved helmets for protection. However, no helmet or supplemental padding can protect the user from all serious head or neck injuries that can result from impacts.
