I’m Sorry, but I Just Gotta

Totally off subject and unrelated to anything that is happening in the game of baseball right now, I have to share this:

I was going through the RSBS archive of photographs that we use for our posts and I randomly came across the Little Davey picture with the big helmet.  Unfortunately, I had just taken a sip of coffee when I saw it again, and now my computer screen and keyboard are covered in a nice Colombian coffee-saliva mix.

Oh yeah, Little Shane wore one too:

Happy Friday!

    Funny you should mention that, Jonestein, cuz if you Google image search “David Wright Big Helmet” you find pics of Dark Helmet. Love that bit!

    Oh yeah the S100 batters helmet… made an appearance this spring in the Yankees ST club house after Cervelli whined about being hit in the head 1 too many times…. got the nickname Gazoo for his troubles…I believe minor leaguers get to wear it all season long…. whooopi…. another strike for baseballs fashion police or is it an opportunity for Alyssa…

    Jeff – couldn’t resist this… you kind of walked into this one…. now your mind is stuck on Alyssa and big helmets, picture the possibilities of advertising, or just picture the possibilities….:-)

    i like those helmets! I mean sure they make everyone’s heads look that much smaller (Have you noticed Juan Pierre and Craig Biggio’s heads always look/looked so small with their helmets on?) but it is for extra protection. We don’t want people getting hurt.. hmm maybe pitchers should wear it too 😉
