Baseball Introduced Their New "Safe" Cap

Posted June 23rd, 2014 @ 8:37am

Major League Baseball wants to protect pitchers from taking line drives to the head, so they've developed a new safer baseball cap.

Alex Torres is a pitcher for the San Diego Padres, and he was the first person to wear one in a game this weekend . . . and it looks RIDICULOUS.  It's basically a baseball hat with a helmet underneath.

But no one said being safe was fashionable.  Torres said, quote, "I get it for free, so I'm just gonna use it to see how it feels."
