Let’s face it, no one likes getting a ball off-the-shin. With very little muscle and fat to cushion impact, the shin, kneecap, and top of the foot are very exposed and vulnerable when it comes to being hit by a baseball or softball. Because of this, it’s important to make sure, as an umpire, you get the best overall protection and fit when umping behind the dish. At BaseballMonkey, we have the umpire shin guards you want at prices you’ll love – all from great brands like: All-Star, Diamond, Rawlings, Champro and Wilson. So now you can focus more on making the right calls behind the plate and less on how much the ball will hurt if it gets by the catcher.
Be sure to check out our Umpire Buying Guide for more information on proper fit and which style may be best for you.
