What's the Best Lens Color for Infielders?

First things first, contrast is king!

Rose Lenses

Rose and rose copper lenses are great tints for daytime play. These colors provide the highest contrast, boost colors, and helps separate them against the backdrop as you're looking towards the hitter. You'll find it easier to spot the ball against the blue sky, green grass, and stadium seats.

Brown Lenses

A brown lens is denser than a rose lens which makes them better for sunny days. While still providing great contrast enhancement a brown lens is a great option for a darker style lens.
