My post from another thread that I opened first:
"This is kind of funny. MLB outlawed the body armor that Bonds was wearing to protect himself from inside pitches. Now they outlaw collisions at the plate and want pitchers to don protective headgear.
What happens more in MLB? HBP, collisions at the plate or liners off the pitcher's noggin?"
