Hi, quick question about the rules regarding my son’s catcher's equipment. I was wondering about the difference between the full, hockey-style mask and the old-school style that goes over the skull cap. I recently purchased the facemask style that goes over the skull cap for my son who has recently picked up catching a big way. I got him this mask: www.baseballbargains.com/shop/allstar-lightweight-ultracool-catchers-facemask-fm25luc but a few of the parents at our workouts have made comments about some regulations or rules I was unaware of. In my nervousness, I just ordered this mask: http://www.baseballbargains.com/shop/mizuno-youth-samurai-catchers-helmet-g4-380192/as well that looks  a lot safer but I know it doesn't have that cool pro look my son wants. Should I bring both with me just in case? Or does anyone know how this aspect of the game is governed? Anything helps!
