I like the design. It’s personal but not over the top. This is a different kind of look the facemasks we’ve seen before and I think it works well with the overall aesthetics.

Giancarlo Stanton will step into a batter’s box for the first time Thursday since taking an 88-MPH pitch from Brewers pitcher Mike Fiers directly to the face in September.
The pitch resulted in a gruesome laceration, multiple fractures, and dental damage.
It also had many calling for better helmet protection, something Stanton’s new helmet has.
The custom-made helmet made by Schutt Sports has a faceguard and a nifty letter “G” woven into its frame. According to the Miami Herald, the faceguard has “a carbon steel frame that can withstand 100-mph pitches.”
