Infielders; do you wear a cup?
I play third base and I always do. I feel it makes me a much braver fielder. As far as I know I'm the only one on my team that wears one. So many times I see infielders jumping to the side on a ball that is hit right at them in order to not catch it in the cajones.

I wear one regardless of whether I play infield or outfield.

I always where one & there is a new cup out their call the Nutty Buddy & believe me it is a great one you don't feel it like the regular cup. Look it up some of you will be surprise. You know how guys like to do cup check maybe next time they will not try it, its hard. Mark Litrell ( not sure of his spelling name ) but he use to pitch for St.Louis & K.C. Royals.

I went on to the sight and had to order two. Was amusing to see how you order in the different sizes and how they come up with the sizes. I ordered 1 for me, "mango size" and 1 for our manager "mouse size".

I am always amazed that guys do play without a cup-no matter what position they play. I cannot count the times I have been hit in the cup by a batted or thrown ball. That exquisite pain is worth the risk?? Really???
I do have 2 stories about it, too. A friend that played short without a cup in the late 80's always gave me a hard time about playing outfield with one on. One time we were playing against each other. I was on first. A guy hit a grounder to him at short and it took a bad hop and hit him right in the "you'd better not touch'!!!. He had time before the pain set in to grab the ball and fire it to second where I was sliding in. The throw hit ME directly in the cup and bounced off. I got up and dusted off-he left the game in tremendous pain.
Another team I was on stayed at a house together in Colorado Springs for a tourney. Our first baseman also game me a hard time about wearing the cup. I was in my sleeping bag and a few of the guys, including him, were going out for a drink. The first baseman made a comment wondering if I slept with the cup on-and I heard it. Not trusting him, I got up and put my cup on and went to sleep. When they came back-buzzed-he decided to find out if I really did wear it to bed and snapped me with the back of his hand-RIGHT ON THE CUP. It almost broke his hand. I never even woke up, but sure learned about it the next day. Some of the guys were laughing a week later about that one.

I can't think of anything more ridiculous than watching some guy rolling around on the ground, in pain, holding his crotch because he thinks he's too good or too tough to wear a cup. It stops the game and wastes time.

Always. This is my advise especially to the flat bellies. We can give you a new heart, liver, kidneys...you mention it and we can get it for you...but as of now we can't give a new ding dong...we can inflate it for you but that is...LOL.

Is the XXXL size made for the guy with a lot of wishful thinking or an elephant?

I don't wear a cup, it is a situation where you hope the pain goes away and the swelling stays.

Tim Allen - Dusters=Pro Team - Dan Smith caught more balls with his cup than he did with his glove...no pun intended.

I did buy one of the Nutty Buddy as noted in the post above. I played a dbl header today, most comfortable cup I have worn. Seriously if you have trouble with chafing, get one of these.

Sport Science tested the Nutty Buddy out in their lab. If you need a little humor this morning, check it out.

This new style cup seems to be an innovative style to will keep you 'junk' comfortably in place and protected. Has anyone tried to use it with other compression shorts or were you just using it with the Nutty Buddy shorts?
