Resorting to some last options here… but have worn this model shin guard since college and it's gone missing! @eastonbaseball doesn't even make the white one anymore so I'm wondering if there's anybody out there that has one of these hanging around and wants to send it to me in return for some tickets or memorabilia! I can get you some @lindor12bc signed gear!!! 🤣. If you have one, DM a pic of proof and we'll talk!! It's gotta be the white one!!

It’s funny that Kipnis apparently believes that his rising star shortstop teammate Franisco Lindor is a big draw than himself — a two-time All-Star and pretty popular player in his own right. Gotta get that shin guard.
