Baseball helmets for infielders?

In the May Journal of Pediatrics there is an interesting article stating that a recent study urges more use of helmets, face guards by high school players playing in the infield. The study was funded by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and analyzed injury data that was taken from baseball players at 100 participating high schools around the country.  The helmets and face masks do cut down on face –eye and mouth injuries but do you think this will become a new rule in some states?  Should it be mandated?
