Base coaches wear helmets because a minor league coach was killed by a line drive that hit him on the head. As a result, helmets are mandatory for field coaches.
Yeah, I remember that. Still, he got hit more in the neck than the head. A helmet that protects the neck from such a hit probably has opposition because it would get in the way of many pitchers' pitching motions.
