Padding Baseball Caps Across America: Massachusetts


Our last stop on the east coast in our region-by-region tour of American baseball is up north in Massachusetts.


Massachusetts is home to only two professional baseball teams: the Boston Red Sox in the Major Leagues and the Lowell Spinners in the Minor Leagues. But we’re going to continue our pattern of looking at a top high school team, in this case Bridgewater-Raynham Regional High School.


The Bridgewater-Raynham Trojans are ESPN Boston’s number one high school team in Massachusetts following their Division 1 championship win, the first championship title in the school’s history. With a 22-5 overall season, the Trojans rose swiftly through the playoffs and ended their years with a 4-0 win over Nashoba Regional. And since Bridgewater-Rayham has a number of key players returning next year, Massachusetts should look out for this high school for the 2014 season as well.


Baseball is and always will be a staple of the American culture, so we want to keep players from little league all the way to the majors outfitted with  GelDefender head pads to  extra padding, comfort and cooling while  playing the sport that they and the rest of America love.


*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.
