The Hall of Fame contacted the Mets Wednesday about David Wright’s new headgear. And no, it wasn’t to say he looked like the Great Gazoo, Beetle Bailey or Dark Helmet from “Spaceballs.” The Hall asked if it could have Wright’s helmet – the ultraprotective Rawlings S100 – to display as part of their exhibit about the evolution of the helmet through the years. Wright intends to send one up to Cooperstown, but probably not until the end of the season. He’s using his current model, despite all of the jokes the All-Star third baseman has endured since wearing it in Tuesday’s game. — Newsday
