  • KHSAA emphasizing softball safety

    The KHSAA is recommending softball players at certain positions take further steps to protect themselves from injury.

    Earlier this month the KHSAA Board of Control passed a proposal recommending the use of protective headgear for softball pitchers, first basemen and third basemen.

    The proposal did not apply to baseball.

    The Board made its recommendation after studying national injury data and after consulting the state’s sports medicine advisory committee, per a KHSAA press release.
