    Is it just me or does it appear that fewer ML baseball players are wearing cups these days? Back in the day, just about everyone wore them.

    maybe it just appears that way, since many teams have really baggy pants now

    I would say 99% of infielders wear a cup. You just cant take the chance of being that close to things without wearing one.

    I would bet most are wearing something like a shock doctor that has a bit of a lower profile then the old duke cups of our youth! So not as noticeable or fun to check out.

    I agree with the baggy uniform theory. I think we just can't see them. However, I would think it would be mandatory. All it takes is one fly ball to the nuts and damn!

    Look at Carlos Z. with the cubs; he is contantly messing with his junk - because he is doing the "scoop" of scrotem and pulliing them back in ..I hate when that happens. Carlos has a cup - trust me, a pitcher on the mound would be crazy not to.

    However, when it comes to basketball, I don't think those dudes are wearing a jock or cup. I think they are all wearing those thick clinghy short things...can't think of the name.

    I remember Torii Hunterr being asked if he wears a cup and he was like Naa, there's too much down there. I LOLd when I heard that.
