The Twins’ Eduardo Nunez can’t seem to find a helmet that fits, which leads to his helmet often popping off his head when he is batting or running the bases.

The solution: use tape to create an improvised chin strap.

This is mere dugout tomfoolery but I say Nunez should wear that onto the field. Who knows, the new tape chinstrap could catch on. It could become popular among other players who also have an issue with their helmets coming off.

Bartolo Colon? He could certainly use the tape chinstrap. His helmet is always flying off his head when he bats.

I love it when people find simple, elegant solutions to little problems. Your helmet doesn’t stay on? Just have someone tape it to your head.

It’s certainly a better solution than gluing the helmet on. Or having some kind of velcro thing installed on the top of your head. Or undergoing some kind of surgery to expand your skull so that your head now fits your helmet.

A tape chinstrap is much more practical than any of those ideas. And it’s cool looking.
