Luis Cruz isn’t about to be caught without his shin guard again. After fouling a ball off his ankle last month and missing two weeks, the Yomiuri Giants infielder isn’t taking any chances.
“I always wear one,” Cruz said. “Most of the time I wear one, but that day was a rainy day and it was just like, nothing’s going to happen today. After that, I’m going to wear it, even in the shower.”
