    (b) All players in National Association Leagues shall wear a double ear
        flap helmet while at bat. 
    (c) All players entering the Major Leagues commencing with the 1983
        championship season and every succeeding season thereafter must wear a
        single ear flap helmet (or at the player's option, a double ear flap helmet),
        except those players who were in the Major League during the 1982 season,
        and who, as recorded in that season, objected to wearing a single ear flap
