The St. Louis Cardinals reached out to the owner of a ballistic grade cup maker to buy three sets of Nutshellz after Yadier Molina was struck in the groin by a 102-mph fastball - that has him out for a month. 

The Cardinals heard about Nutshellz from the Baltimore Orioles which supplied them to all of their catchers in major, minor and AAA to prevent serious injuries. The catchers with the Cleveland Indians wear them too after past injuries had them looking for better protection.

“The players that are having these injuries realize now that they need something a little bit more than the companies that are trying to sell them,” said Jeremiah Raber, CEO of Armored Nutshellz.

They're made out of Kevlar, carbon fibers and aero-space epoxies and are more anatomically correct, covering more of the groin region than the average cup. And they can take a bullet, just in case. You can see more on the cups below.
