The Mayan Ballplayer with elongated head

Falsely identified as an ancient astronaut in a spacesuite, if one see the codex one can see its a ballplayer in his costume.

What is however more than interesting is his elongated head like the Paracas skulls, what is debated if this was a head binding practice.
