    Pitchers who show their weakness (by wearing a mask).

    This should end the debate shouldn't it? Kelly Barnhill v Paige Lowary throwing 70 plus mph 17th inning in game 1 CWS? You callin' them weak?

    My daughter is a sophomore in high school was in at 3rd base for a bunt and got drilled in the face with as hard a ball as I have ever seen hit in a girls game. She had her mask on and was uninjured and stayed in the game unfazed. Without the mask her entire season probably would have been over and possibly some reconstructive surgery.

    There should never be a debate on wearing a face mask. Please provide one good reason why, especially pitchers, should NOT wear a face mask. It only takes one line drive to cause such unnecessary damage, or undo years of orthodontics and thousands of dollars spent, or to end a career. I see absolutely no need to take that chance. I applaud the college pitchers for putting their health, safety, and career ahead of what some consider "weak".

    My daughter was hit in the face two times. Both times, she refused to wear a mask. That second time was the real deal and so, we didn't give her an option after that. If anyone wants to make this some type of macho things, walk out to your dd laying on the ground with her eyes rolled and stand there hoping that the ambulance get there fast.
    I am Cannonball on other sites. Also, I don't live in Ohio and so, keep that in mind when I make comments.

    Love seeing Barnhill with the mask. She is sending the right message!

    It should be up to the player.

    All I am referring to Julie, is the fact that it may swing the opinions of those coaches who won't recruit girls or young women because they choose to wear a mask.

    Re: Pitchers who show their weakness (by wearing a mask).

    First off, I am a supporter of face masks. But wouldn't a player be more likely to be severely injured if they were hit in the top or side of the head ? Or let's say a line drive to the throat or heart ? Which is worse ? Just food for thought.

    Re: Pitchers who show their weakness (by wearing a mask).

    My daughter is only 12, but has been wearing her face mask since she was probably 6 years old. Thankfully, it's second nature for her to wear it now. One big reason I make her wear the mask is, at 12 years old, I have paid for braces for her twice. Once when she was 8-9 years old for cosmetic reasons, and currently 11-13 years old (off next year). I will not be paying for anymore braces, so she will wear that mask, if she wants to play softball. If she doesn't get recruited because of the mask, I don't care. I'm glad the big girls are wearing them.
