What protective clothing does the catcher wear to protect the head?

Well, every player is required to wear a cup. College catchers have to wear a chest protector, shin guards, and a mask. Catchers can wear two different types of masks, you can wear a skull cap and a pull over mask, or you can wear a full helmet that covers your whole head..

When you are catching when you catch a fly ball do you drop the mask immediatley?

Depends. Most catchers who wear a hockey style mask do not remove it to catch a pop-up. If you use an old-school mask, you wait to throw the mask until you have an idea as to the direction the pop-up is heading. You don't throw the mask right away since you do not want to end up tripping on the mask if you have to backtrack.
