    Amazing how far sports safety awareness has come in my lifetime !
    I remember when no hockey players wore helmets, baseball players didn’t have batting helmets, football players helmets had a single bar for a face guard and even when I played soccer, we didn’t wear shin guards.

    That’s when there were short players like Bob Cousy ( 6’1" according to the Celtics P.R. dept. but probably only 5’11" ).

    When the single bar for face guard appeared on some helmets, players were criticized for being sissies.
