For players in any softball program, it is mandatory to have a cage on the batting helmet.
For the hardball house league program, the cage is only required for pitchers, or players playing the pitcher position, in 7U (formerly Jr. Rookie), 9U (formerly Sr. Rookie) and 11U (formerly Mosquito/Tyke).
This rule applies to all BMBA players playing games in and out of town.
Hockey helmets are never to be worn.
