So you’ve probably heard the groundbreaking news that worked its way out today. The minor leagues will switch to the new Rawlings S100 batting helmet for the 2010 season.
We think they’re ugly. And players have been playing without them for over a century. How many have died? We understand protecting the investment. But this is just getting out of hand here. Hopefully enough MLB players speak out and they just leave the damn helmets the way (or as close to as possible) they were when we were growing up in the 80’s.
