in the case of John Olerud, when he was in college he had an artery burst in his head. he wears the hard helmet in the field for protection to that spot

You can have up to 11 players on the field but most of the time you have 9. There is the pitcher,catcher,third basemen,short stop,second basemen,first basemen,left field,center field,and right field. The way you get up to 11 players is if you put some in right center and left center field. They are in between right and left field to play more players.
