If the pitch speed in your league tops out at 70 MPH, Rawlings Gear recommends a helmet with an S70™ Performance Rating™.
Try Rawlings' 70 MPH batting helmet (model number S70X1S
), which features the exclusive COOLFLO® XVI™ helmet design, Heat Exchange™ technology and a rubberized matte paint finish.
This helmet meets or exceeds the NOCSAE® standard up to a pitch speed of 70 MPH. The current NOCSAE® standard equates to a 68 MPH baseball pitch speed. Made for youth players who generally face pitch speeds at or below 70 MPH, the S70™ provides additional protection and performance for young players launching their careers.
Rawlings’ exclusive COOLFLO XV1™ front vents allow for 30 percent more cool air ventilation.
Heat Exchange™ vents rapidly circulate cooler ambient air. Top vents quickly move heated air from player’s head, allowing 70 percent more heat to escape.
The enhanced ABS plastic shell with rubberized matte finish has dual ear flaps and is available in black, cardinal, dark green, graphite, maroon, navy, purple, royal, scarlet and Texas orange.

• NOCSAE® baseball batting helmet standards involve tests of baseballs fired from a cannon at 60 mph at a distance of 2 ft, which is roughly equivalent to an impact resulting from a pitch speed of 68 mph at a distance of 60 ft.
• The Rawlings Performance Rating™ System is based on pitch speeds at a distance of 60 ft.
• NOCSAE® standards require that a batting helmet withstand all test impacts at an established peak severity index (SI). Helmets also must survive all test protocols substantially intact and ready for use.
• The NOCSAE® standard is aimed at reducing the risk of skull fractures. The standard has not been correlated with reducing the risk of concussions from such impacts.
WARNING: Severe head or neck injury, including paralysis or death may occur to you despite using this helmet. No helmet can prevent all head injuries or any neck injuries a player might receive while participating in baseball or softball.
