San Diego Pitcher Alex Torres was the first to wear the new protective 'SAFE CAP" Major League Baseball wants to protect pitchers from taking line drives to the head, Alex was the first person to wear one in a game this weekend . . . and it looks RIDICULOUS. It's basically a baseball hat with a helmet underneath. But no one said being safe was fashionable. Torres said, quote, "I get it for free, so I'm just gonna use it to see how it feels."
