Larry Bowa Concedes
You may have read on Hot Foot that Larry Bowa was prepared to spit on the new rule that all MLB base coaches were required to wear a helmet — a rule created after minor league coach Mike Coolbaugh died from a line drive to his head last season.

“I’ll really make a joke out of it. I’m willing to write out a check for whatever the fine is for every game,” Bowa said. “Whatever 162 games is, I’ll write out a check for it.”

There’s still time for Bowa to win this year’s “Gary Busey Award for Big-Mouthed Stupidity in Regard to Protective Headgear”.
