The Minnesota Twins' team photographer, Brace Hemmelgarn, provides us a shot of Bert Blyleven donning the latest fashion of brain-saving technology for the mound people.


Lookin' good Bert. Lookin' real good.

If it prevents a single head injury it will be well worth it. Probably a little investment in materials science will restore the size.

Around Bert, people would need protective shoes as well.

45: In the end, he can see only one.

Would look more Minnesotan with ear flaps, but's definitely got an outdoorsy hunting cap vibe to it.

I was just going to make an Elmer Fudd reference, but you beat me to it by a good 50 minutes.

It reminds me of the line from Major League when Ricky Vaughn tries on his first pair of glasses:

Lou Brown: You look good. Besides, seeing is the most important thing.

Willie Mays Hayes: I don't think it's that important.

You can come up with statistics to prove anything. Forty percent of all people know that.

Looks like Bert is getting ready to spin off a curveball.
