Lindor walked to house plate within the first inning Sunday sporting the mistaken batting helmet.
A switch-hitter, Lindor was sporting the helmet he makes use of when he hits left-handed — with a protecting flap on the precise aspect. However he was going through Kansas Metropolis left-hander Danny Duffy and was going to hit right-handed.
Lindor rapidly realized the error, exchanged helmets with a bat boy and smiled when he returned to the batter’s field.
Lindor flied out however later prolonged his hit streak to 14 video games with two singles and a double.
Helmets with flaps on the aspect going through the pitcher have been necessary for all gamers making their main league debuts since 1983.
