Padding Baseball Caps Across America: Ohio


After our brief star on the east coast, on our next stop on our region-by-region tour of American baseball we move inland to Ohio.


Ohio is home to both the Cincinnati Reds and the Cleveland Indians in the Major Leagues and six Minor League teams like the Toledo Mud Hens and the Mahoning Valley Scrappers. But we’re going to take a look at the fresh talent the state contains in the form of the Archbishop Moeller High School baseball team.


Ranked number one in the state and number 52 in the country, the Fighting Crusaders from Cincinnati ended their season with an overall 31-2 record. They finished out their impressive season by winning the Ohio Division I baseball championship title in a 7-1 win against St. Ingatius of Cleveland. Congrats to Archbishop Moeller!


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.
