Each SST Prospect Performance Guard has a standard length of 5.75″ with an approximate thickness of 1/5″ and weighs approximately 2.2 ounces for the set.  Important: A larger hat size may be required with use to maintain a proper level of comfort.  However, the vast majority of players can their existing hat size.

SST Prospect Performance Guards are unlike any other padded cap for pitchers, only covering the most at-risk area of a pitcher’s head.  This allows the pitcher to wear concealed head protection without any physical or mental distraction.  When used with a properly sized hat, the guard is virtually unnoticeable.

The SST Prospect Performance Guard for Pitchers is designed for optimal energy dispersion in the event of a batted ball impact.  The inside of the SST Head Protection Guard is lined with a high density polyurethane padding for added comfort and protection.


All SST Products have been put through a battery of impact tests ranging from 60-93 MPH.  Using a headform, triaxial accelerometer, and launcher, we were able to determine a very tangible difference in G Forces when impacted with and without the SST Head Guard.

    Happy Customer

    As a parent of a child who pitches, there is always the concern of your child getting hit in the head with a line drive right up the middle.
    Recently in our state, an 11 year old boy was struck and died from a ball hit directly back at him. This made me search out possible head
    protection for my lefty pitcher. I came across SST’s website and decided to give it a try. I was concerned that my 11 year would
    refuse to wear it if it was uncomfortable. When the hat insert arrived we gave it a try, but had problems with it falling out of the
    hat. Then I remembered that I had some double-sided wardrobe tape which is used to hold women’s garments in place. I put a strip on
    the outside of the hat insert and secured it to the inside of the hat. It fits perfectly and does not slide around. No one can tell that he
    has it in his hat. Plus, I feel a little more secure knowing that he has some protection on the left side of his head. Thank you!

    Thank you so much for this amazing product.
    My son plays 13U AAA and was hit by a line drive at about 85mph. He spent 7 days in the ICU due to skull fracture, brain bleed and swelling. It’s been seven months since his injury. He has been very determined to pitch again. Last night he took to the mound once again without any hesitation. I of course was down the fence line in the outfield watching from a distance. He struck out three out of five batters. My husband is the head coach of our team and now requires anyone who pitches to wear one. Seth of course wears his anytime he is on the field, and when he is mowing the yard. He says, “I just keep it in to get use to it”. Mind you he’s worn it for three months now. He will never admit it but I think he just feels a little better with it in.

    Thank you so much for the extra protection and extra peace of mind for this mamma.

    We spent yesterday evening watching our young pitcher go thru the Cat scan machine, after taking a direct hit to the side of his forehead. Thankfully, he’s expected to be fine, but he is adamant that he will be on the mound again, so I was thrilled to find this sort of technology available in a youth size. If you’re fortunate enough to be reading this before experiencing what we went thru last night, don’t be foolish — get this product or something similar now as opposed to later. After all, you’ve probably spent similar money on Evoshield products, and not one of them protects something this important.

    My son wears the SST in his hat every game and practice no matter what position he plays. They are so comfortable that he does not know he is wearing them and as his parent and loving father I will not put him on a field without the SST inside his hat!

    My son pitched his first scrimmage with them in yesterday and said that he didn’t notice them at all. My kids won’t play a game without them. Great peace of mind for player and parent.
