Yes! I highly recommend the Franklin softball knee pads from Walmart.. they're $6 and they're a total lifesaver.
They're actually $3 online which is a steal.. http://www.walmart.com/ip/Franklin-S...-Pads/17299981
I don't know about most people, but if I am kneeling down on my knees, it's just completely uncomfortable. I wear my Dye C10 pants (which have some padding on the knees) and the Franklin pads and it's amazing.. I literally don't feel any pain and it's very comfortable.
The pads really are amazing.. they don't move after a full day of speedball even when you're diving and sliding into bunkers..
