What to Look for in Baseball Sunglasses

We have a more thorough guide of what to look for in baseball sunglasses, but for now, here are some things to keep in mind.


Frame Technology

The frame shape, materials, wrap, and fit help to keep the sunglasses in place on your face. Having a frame that is both lightweight and durable is best so you can wear it for extended periods of time without worrying about it breaking on a play.


Lens Technology

Choosing a high-contrast lens can make the ball easier to track against the other colors present in a baseball environment. Lens color for night games will differ from day games—get a lighter or clear lens for night play and a darker tint for daytime games. Photochromic (Transitions) lenses and interchangeable lenses are an excellent versatile option.
