I wear modified Hockey shin guards. They go on fast and provide adequate protection.

EVOSHIELD for shin & chest area. Expensive but custom molds to your body.

Thanks to (Paco CJ and S Express) for finding me a hockey helmet and facemask from Goodwill 2.50 half price day. Hall of fame Big Ron hated my puple knee guards that Rusty sold me at half price at East Valley Sports so he gave me his Black ones and I put hard covers underneath to help reflect 110 mile an hour MIken aided balls. Looking for something for chest next season. We soon will look like Hockey Goalies anyway. May have to look for Steal toe shoes soon as recent line drive at Fountain Hills broke a couple of toes. Did not hurt my speed any. Merry Christmas to all ansd many blessings in the coming year. GI

As per SSUSA rules, make sure they are uniform color coordinated. Helmet same color as team hats, etc.

CAN YOU NOT PLAY ANY OTHER POSITION. IF I WAS THAT WORRIED AND NEEDED THAT MUCH PROTECTION I WOULD NOT BE ON THE MOUND ANY LONGER.

Hey Lefty just wondered do you use a safety Belt when driving? Glasses to help you see better, Medication if you need it. Maybe we should stop driving, go blind and die early and not use meds. Just a thought.While your at it maybe stop your insurance I am sure your family does not want the protection. PS bless you for your concern. Maybe we should just start playing with the japan sponge ball and we will all be safe and could use K- Mart bats

Tell you what leftybob-you don't see me pitching against these bats, but if you did I would be wearing the gear, and I still have pretty good reactions. I have been a proponent of taking the rubber completely out of the slowpitch game. It serves NO PURPOSE AT ALL. It deflects balls into pitchers faces and other parts of their anatomy. Even without it, though, the ball comes off pretty fast. Even the kids holler about going up the middle, and they have quick reactions. GI is a good fielder, and smart enough to realize his limitations. Beats playing the macho man and ending up with a smashed face from a shot from one of these bats.
