Description

The Pro-Model umpire shin guards provide more protection above the knee from the triple-knee design than other shin guards and more size options than other Wilson models.

Features

  • Unique triple knee design provides maximum above-the-knee protection.
  • Contoured inner padding is nylon shell with foam for superb comfort to both knee and leg - same padding design as Wilson Platinum and Gold chest protectors
  • Floating lower knee for better flex upon bending
  • Expanded ankle plates provide maximum ankle more protection.
  • Velcro connects padding to outer shell allowing for easy removal and cleaning.
  • Stitched plastic for added durability
  • MLB logo on ankle plate
  • Black color with gold "W" logo matches Wilson Gold chest protector
  • Adjustable sizing: (16"-17" or 18"-19") for custom fit of most knee to foot lengths. Sizes are not the full length of the shin guard but the distance between where the middle of your knee would go to where your leg meets your foot.
  • Wilson is the official umpire gear of Major League Baseball® and Minor League Baseball®.
  • Weight: 16/17- 5.2 lbs., 18/19- 5.6 lbs.

If you routinely work a 4-man crew (never have to run/hustle up to 3rd or up the line), and you want heavy huge bulletproof shin guards with maximum coverage, then these get 5 stars. However, if you don't want to look like Gumby, hate hook straps that rust (vs. snap-clips), don't need a metatarsal plate because you have plate shoes, need to be able to run and hustle, then there are much better options. Personally, I'd give the Force 3 shin guards 6 stars, the Wilson Platinums 3.5, and haven't used any of the others available for sale. I originally bought these my 1st year, thinking I needed the absolute best protection for LL--and I was afraid :-) 10 years later, I wish someone had steered me in a different direction starting out. I've taken 85-90 mph+ shots off the Force 3 shin guards and never felt a thing. Those, you don't even know you have them on. These, you can't ever forget you have them on.

I'm 6'1, I needed the extra length to protect above my knees. I had the Wilson platinum shin guards and didn't cover my upper knee and got hit there a couple times. These are bigger and I feel more protected. These are the gold standard shin guards, especially for taller umpires!

These umpire shin guards are the real deal. A lot of protection and very comfortable! They are a bit bulkier than the platinum pair but I don't feel any mobility issues with them. I am looking forward to using them this season!

Questions About This Product

Q: I've had these shin guards for a few years, and I really enjoy them. But both the clips and the rings they clip to have heavily rusted. What causes this, and is there a way to fix it?
– John Uhal
A: 

Moisture and exposure to the air combined will eventually rust these metal pieces. Best practice is to wipe down your gear after each use and store in a dry area.
