Hall of Fame Catcher Roger Bresnahan Played between 1897 - 1915 Bresnahan most notable contributions to the game were in protective equipment. In 1905 after getting "beaned" in the head with a baseball began experimenting with head gear similar to the leather football helmet of the period that were made by A.J. Reach. Sliced vertically: one half for covering the left side of a right handed batter's head, the other for the lefty hitter. Two years later in 1907 he devised catcher's shin guards. The first, evidently modeled after a cricketer's leg pads but were large, and bulky. NL president Pulliam dismisses the Opening Day protests of Pittsburgh manager Fred Clarke over Roger Bresnahan's shin guards. As yet, Bresnahan was the only catcher using them. Ignoring the ridicule, it was not thought to be gentlemanly to use them. By 1909 the design was refined, and became accepted, and more wildly used. The first team that made their players wear helmets was the 1941 Brooklyn Dodgers Modern-day helmets were not manditory until 1971 and ear flaps not until about 1982. I will leave a link below for more information on Roger Bresnahan, and his inovations, and other Baseball equipment. -Steven KeyMan
Baseball players begin wearing gloves in 1869. Doug Allison of the Cincinnati Red was the first player to wear gloves.
NHL players started wearing helmets as soon as the the 1928-29 season when Boston Bruins' player George Owen wore one. However, they carried a negative stigma that they did not begin to shed until after Bill Masterson died after suffering severe brain trauma in 1968. After that players began wearing helmets more often and in 1979 the league mandated that any players who signed professional contracts after that date would be required to wear a helmet. Players already playing in the league were exempt from this new rule. Craig McTavish would be the last player to play in the NHL without a helmet, retiring after the 1996-97 season.

The first ones were used in 1896, and they became mandatory in the NFL in 1945.
1979 NHL ordered all new players to begin wearing helmets, however prior players who had signed the waiver before this date were allowed to choose. So over the years after 1979 the number of players allowed to NOT wear a helmet decreased due to the older veterans leaving the game. The last person to not wear a helmet in NHL was Craig MacTavish in 1997. He played for the St. Louis Blues.
