Johnny asked: What Major league batter first used a shin guard while at home plate? Who invented the batter's shin guard? An offshoot of my previous question.


Rick answered: I have had no success in locating the information for your question.

Venturing a guess, I would say Reggie Jackson was the first to use one.

No idea on the inventor. They are basically an off shoot of soccer shin guards, that may be the original source.

Yours in baseball,

Rick
