    Blink 42 ...

    The new Jackie Robinson film "42" trailer included a shot that made me blink with surprise.  An attempted bean ball was thrown at Jackie's head while he was batting.  That wasn't the surprise ... the fact that he was without a helmet.  I know that was appropriate for the time, but it still just surpised me.  Reminded me of how we used to look when playing pick up or sandlot games - no helmet, for sure.

    Made me wonder a little ... are there any other changes from "back in the day" that you remember ...
