Buster Posey, Pablo Sandoval, more Giants will have different look at plate

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz.—After 10 days of watching him take batting practice and do catching drills, the Giants fully expect Buster Posey to be in the lineup on March 28 in San Diego. When he digs into the box, you’ll see a different look from Posey, now in his 11th big league season.

Posey is one of a dozen Giants wearing a batting helmet with a flap this spring. Last year, the Giants had just one player on their active roster—backup catcher Aramis Garcia—with a flap protecting his jaw. Posey said he plans to use the new helmet during the 2019 season.

“I thought about changing last year but I didn’t want to do it during the season,” he said. “It’s just about getting more protection.”

So, how long before they switch to motorcycle helmets?

And how long after that before someone tries to bat out of order?
