Our hats are off to Canadian hockey equipment manufacturer Bauer, who is responding to the COVID-19 crisis by producing single-use, anti-fogging, full-face visors. The company hopes to make 500,000 units, which they plan to distribute to Montreal police, firefighters, and hospitals.

Bauer is also working on developing visors that can be cleaned, disinfected, and reused, as well as other protective goods. They’ll be producing all of the products in their Quebec and Liverpool, NY facilities.

Fanatics, an Easton Pennsylvania company that manufacturers Major League Baseball uniforms, has also suspended its normal production and is now making protective face masks using the polyester mesh fabric it would normally use to make the uniforms. The masks, complete with NY Yankees and Phillies pinstripes, will go to hospitals in PA and nearby states.

Thanks, Bauer, and Fanatics, for reminding us that “we’re all on the same team!”
