For many years Batting Helmets weren’t even thought of as a necessity to the game, until one day a wild pitch hit a batter in the head and killed the player. Carl Mays was throwing against the Indians, during a pitch Mays thought the ball was struck by the batter; he threw it to first for the out. Unfortunately the ball ricochets off his head. Mays never showed emotion or remorse about the pitch that ultimately killed Ray Chapman. For years the league argued about protective head gear for the players and it took about twenty years after that incident to incorporate the safety equipment into the game. That’s the abbreviated story about how Batting Helmets became part of America’s favorite past time. Hollywood Collectibles offers a variety of batting helmets signed by your favorite ball players, collectors across the globe enjoy these autographed items, and knowing their history explains the importance behind the helmet.
