Jason Kipnis is one happy ballplayer.

He's been wearing the exact same shin guard since college but the company that makes the guard no longer produces it in white. 

So the Indians player took to Instagram, telling fans to check their belongings. 

"...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!!!" he wrote. 

The brand he wanted: Easton.


Back in action! Thank you to everyone who reached out to help! #askandyoushallreceive
