Which Came First: the Cup or the Batting Helmet?

A little known baseball fact...
The first testicular guard (cup) was used in baseball in 1874 and the first helmet was used in 1971. It took nearly 100 years for men to realize that their brain is also important.

What you forgot to mention is that even the secondary (1911) and tertiary (1954) testicular guards were also developed long before the helmet.
