Outline

A catcher wears a protector on a chest for physical protection when playing baseball. Our product is designed exclusively for hardball baseball. Because it was the line of products which was greatly related to the safety for a player, a conventional product was not over the level as a tool for protection. We began research and development to adopt an unprecedented function for the protector. As a result, this protector realize improving the throwing performance of a catcher.
