Batting Helmet Size Chart

A well-fitting batting helmet is crucial for both comfort and safety. Finding the perfect match can take some time, especially with shifting needs based on age and level of competition. The first step in finding the right fit is to take head measurements. This can be done by taking flexible measuring tape, wrapping around your head just above the eyebrows and ears, and recording the measurement. Use the recorded measurements to compare with the following batting helmet size table:


 Helmet Size Circumference Hat Size Centimeters
X-Small 18-3/4" 20-3/4" 6 6-5/8 48 53
Small 21-1/4" 22" 6-3/4 7 54 56
Medium 22-1/4" 23" 7-1/8 7-3/8 57 58
Large 23-1/2" 24-1/4" 7-1/2 7-3/4 60 62
X-Large 24-5/8" 25" 7-5/8 8 63 64


 Please keep in mind there is no standardized helmet sizing and each helmet can slightly alter by company and/or model. This chart is strictly intended to give a general idea on how to find the right batting helmet size. Some additional considerations to take into finding the right helmet size, include:

  • Age
  • Hairstyle
  • Visibility
  • Additional Accessories (sunglasses, headbands, etc.)
  • Level of Protection (padding, jaw guard, etc.)
  • Certifications (check with team or league to see if NOCSAE certified is required)

Be sure to check with coaches and professionals for any unique or special requirements. When batting helmets arrive, it's recommended the player tries on the helmet immediately before taking it out to batting cages, training sessions or games.
