On this page, I have listed five of the best batting helmets for tee-ball players. These are the most popular and best-rated batting helmets for this age group.
The batting helmet, in my opinion, is the most important piece of equipment you will buy for your player. There are some very important choices that you will need to make relating to proper sizing. I will explain fully to ensure that you will purchase the proper fit helmet for your child.
First, every helmet I have listed below Meets NOCSAE® Safety standards. This can be determined by the NOCSAE label on the helmet.
We will now focus on the proper size of your Player’s helmet:
Make sure you know the exact measurement of your childs head. Simply measure all the way around your players head. With a soft tape measure, start at the forehead, just above the eyebrows. Measure all the way around the back of the head, and then back to the forehead. Make sure the tape is straight and sitting just above the ears. If you do not have a tape measure, use a string in the same manner and then measure the string.
The T-Ball batting helmet sizing chart is at the bottom of this page. You can also read more detailed information about proper baseball equipment sizing in my article Baseball gear for kids – Making the right choice.
Now that you know the exact measurement, select a helmet from the list below. You will notice that I have put the hat size in the heading for each helmet. After you select the helmet link, make sure you are ordering the correct size by verifying in the description that it fits your childs exact head measurement. Different manufacturers refer to each size differently. Some use T-ball, youth, junior, senior or adult as size categories, others do not have that many sizing groups and may use others. The key is to make sure the whatever the designation is, you make sure your childs proper hat size is listed in the product description.
For example: your childs head is 19 1/4 inches in diameter. Looking at the sizing chart below, you will see that they are a hat size 6 1/8. Regardless of what the manufacturer calls that size T-ball or youth, you will select the helmet with size 6 1/8 listed in the description.
Face guards may or may not be required in your childs Tee-Ball league. If they are, all of the helmets I have listed has an option for a face guard. Face guards are easily attached with a phillips screwdriver. Check with your childs coach or league officials.
