Elbow brace
I'm trying to get ready for fall practicing with the team and I have this elbow brace I've been wearing during practice but fall starts for us next week.It's been a big help and I think my elbow is about 85%-90%.Would I be able to wear this brace during a ASA league game?

I can't think of a reason why not. Guys wear knee braces all the time.

Well the reason why I'm asking Dirty cuz you can't wear necklaces,those energy necklaces,wrist watches,rings,braclet jewelery, those rubber braclets to support cancer,and visable body jewelery.I hope this brace doesn't fall in the catagory.I'll ask the blue next week if it's ok.I wear a knee brace too hopefully for me they'll let me wear it before they call a strike on me for that.

Yeah #6,I play here in Colorado where there is one place I've heard of that doesn't care about all that and plays under USSSA rules but it's park that has private ownership and they charge a $1.00 to get in.As far as the other parks are concern majority of them are playing under ASA rules.I think it's a parks and rec. thing probaly a liabilty issue.Personally I don't know what the big deal is with them I would like to wear one of the bracelets that support cancer research because I have a few relatives and friends that have cancer but I guess parks have there own rules on top of the sanctioned rules.

Jewelry and braces are seperate issues. As an example, my daughter played high school soccer and now plays in college. They cannot wear jewelry, but braces are clearly permitted.

One is necessary in probably all cases, the other is not.
