[6/22/2016] Bigger shin guard for Shohei Otani

Shohei Otani will be getting a bigger shin guard after he gave the Nippon Ham Fighters a scare when he fouled a pitch off his right leg during a game against the Chunichi Dragons on June 19. The ball hit the area just above the guard.

Otani is currently using a shin guard that is about 23.5 centimeters long. His new guard is about 4.5 centimeters longer at twenty-eight centimeters.
