He still does wear the helmet, even in the dugout, he had a brain aneurysm in college and started using a helmet permanently after he recovered.

Yup, one ball of the noggin and Johnny's a goner. His risks were just that much greater than the average guy, so he still wears the helmet to this day...

Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.
Yes doctor, there will be blood.....

Yeah...and he normally doesn't even use the one-hole helmets...he's a double hole guy due to the risks involved.

It's cool that he still plays; he's a dang good hitter. ;-D
