protective shirts
Would like some input on protection of shirts have looked at a EXO Armour preformance shirt but would like to see if anyone has one. I have checked out EVO and others but does not really protect the liver area. So any positive input would be appreciated.

Why do we need Protective Gear? This is a Recreation Sport . . . ain't it ? ! ? !

Yes it is a rec sport till you get a bad hop or a line drive up the middle. As most people state when you get past the age of 60 your reflexes slow down a little. So why take a chance of getting hurt when a little protection can help. I have never worn any before but a small health problem makes it worth while. I appreciate the answers that were given and I will check this out as I dont want anything bulky.

I guess I am just a wuss, but I don't understand the opinion sometimes expressed here against protective equipment. The fact that it is a recreational sport to me is an argument in favor of protection. The pros minimize protection if they think it hampers performance. That shouldn't be an issue for old guys having competitive fun.
A $10 mouthguard can minimize pain, and save mucho dollars in dental bills and minimize brain
trauma, but how many infielders wear them? I see lots of braces to enable some guys to play, but relatively few shin guards. What are we trying to
prove? In my league the Junior Division mandates screens for the pitchers but the Senior division refuses to mandate it. Insanity!

Definition of Facetious:

Cleverly amusing in tone; "a bantering tone"; "facetious remarks"; "tongue-in-cheek advice"

The Game has changed so much and has come to more than just a cup & mouthpiece. Everyone that knows me, knows that I am Not a Fan of these Ridiculous Senior Bats ! ! !

Have Fun, be Safe,
