Vintage Fridays: Ken Singleton, 1980 Topps #340

You don't see guys wearing the cap under their batting helmet any more; Juan Pierre is the most recent example that comes to mind. Is it because the helmets are constructed to fit better, or are today's players just more conscious of the fact that wearing two pieces of headgear together looks incredibly doofy? I'm guessing it's a bit of both.

I was actually just thinking about that yesterday. I like the look - Eddie Murray pulled it off well. We did that in elementary/middle school.

We did it in Little League too; it was the only way the helmet would stay put.
