I came across a tweet today from the Cypress Lake High School Lady Panthers Twitter account that for the 2018 season all softball players will be required to either wear a face mask or sign a waiver.  

 

Do you all think this is a good rule?

I think this makes soooooo much sense.   Players are required to use helmets and face masks in football because of the danger and potential harm of various objects hitting you in the face.  And it's the same in softball!

 

All it takes is one perfect hit sent to the right place to cause significant, perhaps even permanent, damage.  Why risk it?  Especially at the lower levels.  There is no reason, in my mind, not to require face masks.

This makes total sense. High School hockey players also have to wear full-cage masks.  Is this for all field players, or just for batters and pitchers?
