In the spirit of idiocy projected by the mouth and bile of our fearless leader, let’s look back to 1876 Baseball. Did Abner Doubleday wear a mask?
Now we are safe to say that the Catcher was PROTECTING HIMSELF WITH A MASK as far back as 1876. WHY? Because he would have had his head taken off with any foul ball. I was once clipped with a foul ball while catching as a 10-11 year old Knee Hi Baseball all star! I was messing around with no mask on and it wasn’t pretty. I woke up in the hospital. One eye bandaged. Beautiful shiner. Almost lost the eye. Many have said that the foul ball clipping me is the reason for a great many things that I did in my life. I am in full agreement with them all. I could be fine…. today…. IF I JUST WORE THE DAMN MASK. 🤣⚾️
