Chest Protectors

New for the 2018 Season:
Franklin Baseball and Softball League recommends that players wear a protective chest protector pad covering the heart area under their uniform shirt. We strongly recommend these for pitchers in both baseball and softball divisions.  As is the case for batting helmets, bats and mitts, the league does not provide this equipment, but chest protector pads are available at most stores selling sports equipment."
