What protective gear should girls wear when playing softball?


Answer by  rightlight (1053)

Softball does not require a lot of protective gear, especially compared to other sports. However there are a few things you'll need. You'll need to purchase a pair of sliding shorts, since sliding on the dirt without them can leave a road-rash like injury on the thighs. When batting, a helmet will be needed.

Traditionally, the only protective gear necessary for girls to play softball consists of a batting helmet. However, in the current era, popular protective gear includes face masks for batters, mouth guards for all girls in the field and while hitting, chest protectors for the pitcher, and a double base at first base.
