What kind of sunglasses should I wear for playing baseball?

Baseball Sunglasses

For baseball games that are played in the daylight, sunglasses are extremely important for many reasons. First of all, it is very difficult to catch a baseball when it is sunny out; when you are looking right up at the sun, it will be hard to see the ball and chances are great that you will miss it. It can also harm your eyes to look directly at the sun without protection. Some baseball sunglasses are also optimized to eliminate glare and enhance vision, especially on sunny days.

Some baseball players also choose to wear sunglasses during the night in order to improve their performance. Because it can sometimes be difficult to see properly when playing in a dark stadium with bright lights shining on you, sunglasses that have an anti-reflective coating can offset or absorb the bright stadium lights.

Sunglasses can also be used to protect baseball players from serious injury. Baseball players should choose sunglasses that have shatter-proof polycarbonate lenses and are able to withstand the impact of a baseball. The sunglasses also need a lightweight but durable frame such as one made from polycarbonate. Some baseball sunglasses also have a shield design so that the entire front of the frame is a polycarbonate lens; this way, the lens can be changed, depending on the day's conditions.
