CRACK Image-Line Pitcher VST V1.0.1 [ak]
Mark, thank you for taking your time to write this post. Until MLB takes some substantial action, there will be many more incidents like this happening. The only way we might make a difference is if the players themselves decided to wear special gloves or batter’s helmets. You, Mark, are smart enough to realize this and I’m sure the players will not miss the added protection. In some instances these protective gear might need to be required in order to be safe. There are some pitchers who carry extra gloves, but it is probably not a wise idea to wear them when you are pitching. One of the things we need to realize is that today young pitchers are participating in baseball with a short season. Thus, when they graduate from high school at the end of that season, they have a different body type than when they started.
The safest thing would be to require a pitch count, but as you say, that seems to have been done. One consideration is that the proper mechanics of the pitcher (throwing) can be destroyed if a pitch count is too strict. In fact, I have seen pitchers injured while throwing because they could not stop after a certain number of pitches. In football, a passing-interference penalty might be more appropriate.
Actually, I may have been too harsh in my comments in the post. I was trying to make my point with a little humor, but I guess some people consider that extreme humor. I was just trying to make the point that as a pitcher, you are constantly at risk to be hit in the head and I am just glad I was not the victim.
As I say, the owners could get involved and create some form of protective headgear for pitchers. I think its an excellent idea and should be mandatory in the Majors, Juniors, and even in the Pro Leagues. As I look at the high school baseball field, it does not seem to be a very safe place for pitchers to be. When I played as a pitcher, I was always careful to be over the plate, but we did not have these helmets. I think it would be a great thing to see some players wearing one of these helmets when pitching.
Tracy Haigh has submitted a follow up to his earlier post where he mentioned the headgear that MLB had to wear during the season. This gear was not used for batting. I think this is a good idea and would like to see all players (pitchers included) wearing one of these helmets when they pitch, even in the Pro Leagues.
This is something the pitcher must bear. On one side, the union and its leaders and the owners for that matter are something that when we want to go for big change people like Nelson, Thang or just someone with the guts to actually cause change get punished just for suggesting something slightly different. On the other side, the fans will always judge by numbers the number of images on a player that do not see a factory produced image a product that allows for real and subtle people, women in particular, to take control of their own identities and be free to choose that fashion is a non issue for them.
The injury drew considerable public interest, and in the ensuing game Mays was the losing pitcher, giving up six runs, including a three-run homer to Giants slugger Johnny Evers, who then later remarked: “I thought I hit one like he had on his own pitching,” Mays said later.”The ball knocked me out of my shoes and hit me between the eyes and the right eye was almost knocked out of its socket.”He had”nearly lost the sight of his right eye,” he said. And he had no headguard.
The heat is actually considerably more stressful on a pitcher than the other players involved, and its obviously not something that a baseball team should knowingly be exposed to. In any case, the only way for a pitcher to get the best protection is to be completely covered in a facemask, which is not only extremely uncomfortable, but also at the very least increases the chance of him getting hurt more.
