ALL STAR PLAYER CATCHER SET
New for the 2019 season, All-Star has developed chest protectors which are certified by SEI to meet the new NOCSAE standard for protection against commotio cordis. This rare, but very dangerous condition can result from a blunt impact to the chest causing cardiac arrest. Products that meet the new NOCSAE standard have been shown to significantly reduce the risk of this occurrence. NFHS will require use of certified chest protectors starting January 1, 2020. NCAA will require use of certified chest protectors starting January 1, 2021. Adoption dates by other leagues are still pending.
