There is no rule here. More protection is a personal choice. An athletic store or a teammate can help you choose the right one.

i dont think that they would have to, but definatley wear a cup. i know catchers have to but pitchers should because a teammate was pitching without a cup and got a line drive there, he was down for 15 min. i was pitching one time and got hit there by a line drive and it shattered my cup. i shudder to think what it would feel like if i didnt have a cup on.
