Baseball may not be considered by many to be a contact sport, but Minnesota Twins star first baseman Justin Morneau will tell you that is far from the truth.
Morneau played his first baseball last week in over eight months after suffering a concussion from taking a knee to the head.
Playing a few innings in a meaningless game is still far from where Morneau wants to be, but he and the Twins will take the progress.
While the NFL zoned in on illegal hits this season, and the NHL is talking hits to the head this week, there has been little mention of how to make the MLB safer.
As the game of baseball gets faster with stronger players and better bats, the protective equipment around the league is failing to keep up.
This slide-show features suggestions on what the MLB needs to do to protect its players and the future of baseball.
Fell free to comment below with what other safety ideas you have.
