Baker is a bad joke.
Still, it's Jocketty's call.
He sure did unless his eye was swollen shut, many did not even wear helmets, they were not required until 1970 or 71, I'm pretty sure.
Of course a lot of players wore them way before.
Cozart was hit on the top part of his helmet, pretty much a glancing blow. Looked worse than it was and scared him more than anything, it's a very very loud sound. He's fine.
