Key Qualities of Baseball & Softball Sunglasses:

  • A snug fit will prevent your shades from falling off as you slide into home or dive for a ball.
  • Decrease the likelihood of your glasses shattering on the field by picking a pair with plastic or polycarbonate lenses.
  • If you’re looking for durability, a full frame style will be less likely to break on impact than half-framed sunglasses.

Lenses to Look For:

A serious baseball player has several pairs of sunglasses with varying lens tints to accommodate different lighting conditions. The right lens tint will make the white color of the baseball pop against the sky and field.

Amber Lenses
