Most often, it has to do with superstition. Some players will not have their helmets cleaned during the season. Which doesn't sound like a big deal, except that they're also handling the pine tar to improve their grip, which ends up making the helmet quite dirty after several games. If the helmet is actually broken, it's not allowed to be used in the game.

Professional baseball teams only wear helmets when batting and they don't have designated colors. Several baseball players wear red helmets when batting.

Because the brain is IMPORTANT. We do not want it to be damaged (this is why we wear helmets if we plan to do something where the head could be injured).

Unless you are "fixing" a faceshield or a visor, Helmets cannot be repaired. If it was in an accident, it's "used up" Buy a new one.

It depends what type of racing they are doing. In a Time trial there are specific Aero helmets that many prefer. In touring a long distance road riding a light comfort helmet is preferred it's very dependent and also has to do with preference.

The reason why Major League Baseball players touch their helmets is because they use a substance called Pine tar, it's a sticky substance that looks kind of like mud in a way. Players stick it to their helmets so that when they go up to bat they have some to grab to put on their batting gloves because Pine tar is designed to help keep a better grip on a bat.
