The Most Protected Players in Major League Baseball

With EvoShield's line of protective gear, you not only guard yourself against injury, you elevate your performance.

A baseball player's body is his greatest asset, and how he chooses to protect it is one of the most important decisions he can make.

For the best players in Major League Baseball, the choice is obvious. With its signature Gel-to-Shell fitting process, EvoShield gear and apparel provides the lightest, least intrusive and most protective option in the game.

The best catcher in baseball wears it. Major League Baseball's most valuable players do, too. In fact, EvoShield proudly protects more than 300 big league players and collegiate teams.

We took a look around the Major Leagues to see which players are sporting EvoShield protective gear.

Yadier Molina

No question that Molina is the best defensive catcher in the game today, but he can rake with the bat, as well. The 2013 Silver Slugger steps up to the plate sporting the EvoShield protective batter's elbow guard and wrist strap.

Miguel Cabrera

Cabrera is surgical with the bat and he rarely fouls balls off his foot or ankle. Nevertheless, Mr. Triple Crown stays protected at the plate with the EvoShield batter's leg guard and wrist strap.

Andrew McCutchen

McCutchen is one of the game's rare five-tool players. The EvoShield leg guard gives the 2013 National League MVP the extra resource he needs to stay healthy and produce at an All-Star level.

Paul Goldschmidt

Goldschmidt doesn't just smash balls out of the park. The power-hitting first baseman also flashes some speed on the base paths. Whether it's a home-run trot or a play at the plate, Goldschmidt stays protected with the EvoShield wrist guard when he's rounding the bases.

Jacoby Ellsbury

Jacoby Ellsbury

Ellsbury switched to Yankee pinstripes this past off-season, but his choice in protective gear remains the same. The All-Star CF is fitted with the full line of EvoShield products, including the elbow, wrist and leg guards.

Yoenis Cespedes
