Big Headed People Rejoice! Major League Baseball has finally done something about all of our complaints! For all of the big headed people out there, who played baseball and our helmets kind of just sat on top of our heads instead of actually protecting it. This helmet is for us! For all of the big headed people out there, whose baseball careers ended prematurely because we decided to pursue other non-helmet wearing sports. This helmet is for us! For all of the big headed fans out there, who like to wear those red plastic helmets to Phillies games and tip our helmet to the cheering crowd whenever we do something special, like chug another beer or perhaps finish our second Schmitter of the inning, even though those helmets were clearly made for the little headed. This helmet is for us!

David Wright is the first major leaguer to wear the new safety conscious Rawlings S100 helmet. Wright is recovering from a concussion received when he was hit in the head by a 90+ MPH pitch from Giants pitcher Matt Cain, 2 weeks ago. Wearing a S100 will be mandatory in the minor leagues in 2010 and we could see them required in the majors after that if all goes well.

  1. Finally is right! I have always felt bad for all of the "Heads" out there. Like "Head Vanderneut", and "Bone Head", and the original "Head". I have witnessed first hand Doc attempting to put a regular sized helmet on. He makes the helmet look like one of those ice cream helmets that you used to get at the Ground Round when you were a kid. One thing I do know is that there is no helmet that will fit on Moo's oddly shaped head.
