Duck and Cover!

Pitchers continue to get struck by line-drives!

Aroldis Chapman, the young All-Star pitcher for the Cincinnati Reds, was struck in the head by a line-drive during a Spring Training game yesterday. This seems to be a reoccurring theme for MLB pitchers in the last couple of seasons. This problematic situation poses many serious threats to careers. With concussions being addressed in the NFL, as of recent, I ask the question: When will the MLB Players Association make the same threats and pleas the NLFPA did, to facilitate a way to change these vulnerable situations? I found a product that I thought needed to be shared because of the fact it seems very practical and revolutionizing. The product protects pitchers by not changing equipment but rather having an lower profile add-on. Here is what I found: Easton Add-on could protect more than half the head of a vulnerable pitcher
