CLOSING THE CAP: MLB Senior VP & General Counsel/Labor Dan Halem said that the league begins Spring Training “without an approved choice of protective headgear for pitchers, and it's uncertain whether any product will receive approval in time for the regular season.” Halem said that MLB officials “have spent the offseason considering and testing padded linings for caps, with the hope that by spring training, MLB would be able to approve and present to the players association multiple options for pitchers to try out on a voluntary basis.” But he said that thus far “no new cap design satisfies requirements MLB set for providing head protection against high-speed batted balls” (ESPN.com, 2/11).
