It also includes a stretchable fabric sewn to outermost side edges of the shielding portion such that the shielding portion and fabric together encircle the wrist and forearm. The shielding portion is formed from two separate but attached sections sewn together along a seam extending lengthwise of the wrist and forearm. Each section has a pad of pliable, shock-absorbent material and a sheet of hard, semi-rigid material superimposed on top of the pad. The pad and sheet are encased in a durable material. The device is provided with a plurality of eyelets at a forward end thereof for detachably fastening the device to a heel portion of the glove using the existing glove lacing.
