Catcher's mask[edit]

Vic Willis wearing a catcher's mask, circa 1900

The catcher's mask is a piece of baseball equipment. It is worn by the catcher to protect the head from injury.

History[edit]

The first catcher's mask was used in 1875.[4] Fred Thayer, captain of the Harvard Crimson baseball team in 1876, 1877, and 1878 developed a mask.[5][6][7] It was used by James A. Tyng, the team's catcher.[8]

After getting hit in his mask by two consecutive foul-tip balls in a game, Charlie O'Brien developed an idea for a new catcher's mask while he was watching a hockey game. He worked with Van Velden Mask Inc., of Hamilton, Ontario, Canada, to develop his idea. The new design, called the "All-Star MVP", was approved in 1996 by Major League Baseball.[9][10]

The Face mask or catcher's mask is a piece of equipment worn by catchers and umpires to protect their face from errant throws and foul balls. It consists of wires that prevent balls from hitting the face but allow the catcher full vision, and a circle of padding that absorbs shocks. The mask is worn over a helmet that protects the top of the head. Masks worn by umpires are similar in design.

While the mask afford good protection, it restricts vision and movement, which is why catchers (and umpires) are taught to discard it as soon as the ball is hit. Umpires will keep it in their hand, but catchers, who need their two hands, will throw it away to a spot where it will not interfere with the play. There have been cases of catchers failing to throw their mask sufficiently far and tripping on them, most famously Hank Gowdy who dropped a crucial foul pop-up, as a result in the 1924 World Series.

The mask is the first piece of plate equipment to have been developed: the first models date back to the 1870s, developed from a fencing mask, and replacing mouth protectors, adopted from bare-knuckles boxing, that were used prior to this. Fred Thayer developed the first mask for Jim Tyng, catcher of the Harvard University team, around 1877. Derided at first, the contraption caught on quickly and was in general use by the 1880s. It was then improved by adding padding, replacing the mesh used to cover the face by a few carbon-fiber tubes that allow for better vision. It is now being gradually supplanted by the actcher's helmet, inspired by those worn by hockey goaltenders, introduced by Charlie O'Brien in the 1990s.

Mario Thomas[edit]

Mario Thomas Zapiain (died August 21, 2009) was a Mexican sports announcer. He served as the first Spanish-language broadcaster for the San Diego Padres of Major League Baseball.

Thomas called games for the San Diego Padres in 1969 and from 1971 through 1997. He served as the Spanish play-by-play announcer on the CBS Hispanic Radio Network for the 1984 NLCS, bringing the Padres thrilling victory over the Cubs to millions of Spanish-speaking fans. Thomas was on the air for each of the Padres' first three postseason appearances, broadcasting in 1984 and 1996 and appearing as a special guest in 1998 after his 1997 retirement.

In addition to calling games for the Padres, Thomas broadcasted games in the winter for the Aguilas de Mexicali in the Mexican Pacific League for 16 years and called action from the Caribbean World Series in 1986
