Default Shin Splints?

So I don't know if I am just getting old or there is a new ailment popping up from outside activities but the last 3 weeks I have started to have shin splints really hindering my lower body workouts (squats mostly).

I play softball twice a week, along with walking the dogs daily, but this isn't any more extreme (less actually) than what I was doing before they started bothering me. Has anyone else had experience with treating shin splints and maintaining their training?

Open to all ideas, but I have started to incorporate rolling my shins at night again to hopefully alleviate some of the pain.
