    Rawlings about to introduce safer batting helmet, baseball players may be too vain to wear it

    And then there's David Wright...he looks so goofy...no offense it makes him look like a retarded kid...im just sayin

    Im glad they are trying to be safer but this thing looks a little ridiculous.

    Hey, it's up to you.

    Would you rather run the chance of death or look a little goofy? By the way, there's one answer to this and it's not the first option unless you're suicidal.

    I rather look goofy then take a 96mph fast or even faster. It might end your career or even worst kill you. I think Wright is doing the smart thing, it probably scared the crap out of him after getting hit in the head, so he doesn't want to take another chance.

    Yeah - you probably wouldn't die, but it can still be a career ending injury.

    Also, it's interesting that they talk about the 2 ear flaps, but it doesn't look like 2 flaps in that first pic
