Wilson MLB Gold 6" Umpire Throat Guard
Crew How-To: Properly Attach Your Umpire Throat Guard
Ty Unthank shows you how to properly attach the umpire throat guard to your umpire mask.
First of all, all plate umpires should wear a throat guard. As a former catcher, I started wearing one back in the early 80's and I have been spared from a serious injury many times. You may not like the click-clack but, that can be solved with a small, rubber adhesive furniture bumper like what you would see inside a kitchen cabinet to keep it from making an audible bang. I have yet to see a plate umpire get seriously injured while wearing a throat guard. Second, if you're going to wear a Wilson mask, I highly recommend the Wilson throat guard for a uniform appearance and elite protection. And as far as I know, Ump-Attire.com is the only place you can find this throat with the desirable, matching gold "W" Wilson logo. In closing, make sure you watch the Ump-Attire.com video on how to properly install your throat guard for maximum protection, comfort, and appearance.

Perfect protection for your throat. I always go with the 6 inch now for my traditional umpire masks, much better protection and this one matches my Wilson perfectly.
Excellent throat guard! The 6" size was perfect.
