Tony Conigliaro was wearing a helmet without an earflap when he was seriously injured by a pitch in August In , the next significant helmet remodeling took place when the Pirates Dave Parker wore a hockey mask at the plate after he broke his cheek and jaw bones in a collision at home plate.

In , it was made mandatory for new players to use a helmet with at least one earflap. Players can choose to wear double earflap helmets in the major leagues; however, this is not mandatory. Tim Raines was the last player to wear a helmet without earflaps, during the season. Gary Gaetti , who retired in the year , plus Ozzie Smith and Tim Wallach , who both retired in , also wore flapless helmets until they retired.

Some players, mostly switch hitters, also decide to wear double earflap helmets while batting. Two notable players to do this were Orlando Hudson and Chuck Knoblauch.

Umpire Bill Welke made him get one with a flap. In , Major League Baseball tested a new batting helmet for the first time in nearly three decades. At the All-Star Game in Detroit, players were seen wearing a new "molded crown" helmet that featured side vents, back vents and larger ear holes. The no-flap helmet is still utilized in baseball.

Catchers often wear a flapless helmet along with a facemask to protect the head when receiving pitches. Occasionally, players other than catchers will wear a batting helmet without earflaps while playing a defensive position in the field. This is usually done by a player who has a higher-than-normal risk of head injury. One notable example is former major-league player John Olerud , who started doing so after undergoing emergency surgery for a cerebral aneurysm while attending Washington State University.

An earlier example was Richie Allen , who decided to wear a helmet in the field after at least one incident of being hit by objects thrown by fans. They are allowed to use the no-flap helmet for this purpose, and many do.

Following the death of Tulsa Drillers first base coach Mike Coolbaugh after being hit by a batted ball, there has been debate as to whether base coaches should wear helmets.

Following the incident, the Oakland Athletics ' Rene Lachemann decided to wear a helmet out to his third base coaching position. In , Major League Baseball decided to take action and protect players from the increasing number of concussions and head injuries. Some players, including Mets third baseman David Wright , did decide to use the helmet while batting. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
