Should MLB pitchers be required to wear helmets?


Base coaches are required to wear helmets however, pitchers are considerably closer to the hitter after they have delivered the pitch and are not required to wear helmets. Is this logical?

    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.
