Are you tired of staring straight into the sun while trying to catch that fly ball? Well, so is the girl in this picture. We’ve got a solution. Not only will you no longer have to stare into the sun, but your vision will actually be enhanced while playing softball. See better, play better, and feel better with the best sunglasses in the game. Keep reading and we’ll explain why you can and should play softball with sunglasses!

Stop Damaging Your Eyes!

Playing a softball game during the daytime is reason enough for a fresh new pair of shades. Sunglasses protect against the sun and those harmful UV rays. Our eyes are extremely susceptible to UV rays, and by not wearing sunglasses, we are more likely to damage our eyes. No matter what position you play, it’s a smart idea to wear sunglasses when you’re out on the field. There’s nothing worse than playing a game when the sun is setting right behind the backstop. Not only is the pitcher staring straight into the sun, but the whole defense behind her is struggling to see. On the flip side, no batter wants to try to hit while the sun is directly behind the pitcher. We’re here to fix this problem and make things a whole lot easier for you!

Sunglasses Prevent Against Eye Injuries

Ever get stuck with a game at the windiest time of the day? Aren’t you tired of trying to field a ground ball when all the dirt is blowing in your face? You don’t have to play like this anymore! Sunglasses can be made with a specific lens size and curvature so that the sun AND debris is kept out of your eyes. With the perfect grip, coverage, and fit, you’ll be boosting your athletic performance and be feeling more confident than ever. To get a look at some sunglasses that combine all of these elements, check out our blog on the Best Softball Sunglasses of 2019.

How Do I Pick the Perfect Pair of Softball Sunglasses?

We know that picking sunglasses is a big commitment, so we’re here to make the process as easy and fun as possible. Let’s go over a few elements of sunglasses that you’ll want to consider before making the purchase. A lot of people ask if they should get polarized lenses for softball. To keep it simple, no. Polarization is known to affect depth perception, and that’s not the best idea when playing softball. Next, depending on what time of the day you’re playing in, you’ll want lenses that enhance your game based on the light outside. For day time, look for medium to dark brown tinted lenses. For night time, focus on yellow or amber tinted lenses. These enhance light conditions when playing under bright stadium lights.

Which Softball Sunglasses Should I Buy?

Now that we’ve gone over why it’s important to wear sunglasses when playing softball, we’ll show you a couple pairs that we think make the cut for your next game.
