John Buck's Catcher Helmet

Monday, April 4, 2011

In addition to the usual Opening Day bells and whistles, we got our first glimpse of new Marlins catcher John Buck's catcher's mask this weekend. I love it, it's elegantly designed and not too complex (so you can see it pretty clearly on television). It's positively Guy Harvey-esque.

As more catchers opt for the hockey-style mask over the traditional mask, we'll begin seeing more elaborate designs like the one on Buck's mask. Buck's design strikes the right balance; it's got enough going on to catch your eye, but not so much that it becomes an amorphous blob on TV. His mask was the only thing not painful to watch during Sunday's game.
