Ear is a good place to get hit. Nice fleshy padding. The temple or back of the head - not so much. Still scary.

Then shoulder pads, then leg pads, then eventually full-body armor...

No. Let those with the guts to stand on the field do what they do. Those without the guts to do it can park cars.

I was watching that live. I spit out my beer and clutched my head like an old lady with the vapors. Scary stuff

Well, you know when chickens paint pictures of mammary glands with their hands and then the earth opens up and marshmallow cream comes out and then all the cars start dancing ballet with the trees to Iron Maiden's Death of a Salesman...

Or headgear.  Although it's not 1974; helmets look cool nowadays.  Seriously they need to come up with a good design and do what hockey did (make new pitchers wear one - grandfather in vets).

So baseball should be played naked, right?

/there'd be more ball handling . . .

Yup, the whole world is black & white. No middle ground at all. Just extremes.

They make helmets for slow pitch softball pitchers but that wouldnt work for baseball. One would need to design something with extreme peripheral vision abilities to allow pitchers to see over their shoulder to first.

I think the base of any design should be a lacrosse helmet. Its what I use when I pitch in softball.
