Through the Lens of an All Star: MLB All-Star Game Day Shades 2015
Whether it was during warm ups, pre-game, game-time, or post-game, players and coaches alike sported some of the best baseball sunglasses throughout the day of the MLB All-Star Game. We at SportRx, took it upon ourselves to figure out what shades these players were rockin' in the 2015 MLB All-Star Game.
Don Mattingly, Buster Posey and Andrew McCutchen having a blast together out in Cincinatti is a just a spectacular sight to see. McCutchen, an All-Star Outfielder, who had a home run in yesterday's game, is shaking hands with Mattingly, as Buster Posey acknowledges the admiration being displayed. Each is sporting their own pair of shades.
Mattingly is wearing Kaenon Hard Kore sunglasses, which are a popular model in the game of baseball, and McCutchen is wearing the Nike Show X2, another prevalent model of baseball sunglasses that are perfect for tracking down fly balls.
Above, National League All Stars Todd Frazier, Bryce Harper, Max Scherzer, and Anthony Rizzo are preparing for the start of the 2015 MLB All Star Game. Rizzo, the Chicago Cubs First Baseman went first in yesterday's Home Run Derby, but wound up bested by Third Baseman Josh Donaldson of the Toronto Blue Jays. Frazier, however who is pictured below wearing the Under Armour Igniter 2.0 was the hometown hero.
Cincinatti's Third Baseman, Todd Frazier, was so clutch it was mind blowing. He made it through every round, beating Prince Fielder first and then Donaldson second. In the the final round, he went head to head against Los Angeles Center Fielder Joc Pederson, known for hitting absolute bombs; high flying home runs that explode off the bat, tower as high as a skyscraper, and land far beyond 400 feet. The rookie center fielder was a total stud out there, and it came as no surprise, seeing that his season home run distance average was the longest of any contender in this year's derby.
At only 21 years of age, Pederson is likely to be one of the greats and he sure looks the part in his Oakley Fast Jacket's, but as they're discontinued a very similar model to Joc's pair is the Oakley Flak 2.0 XL. He is truly an amazing athlete to watch, and has done great things for the Los Angeles Dodgers since being called up this year. As the first Rookie Dodgers position player ever to start in an MLB All Star Game, Joc Pederson is certainly in the running for NL Rookie of the Year. Joc was all smiles, being one of the finalists in the 2015 MLB Home Run Derby, but he wasn't the only one grinning with excitement during the All Star festivities. Check out Salvador Perez below.
Kansas City Royals' All Star catcher, Salvador Perez sports a pair of Oakley Radar EV Path Baseball Prizms and shows his utmost excitement to be a part of the All Star madness. Along with Alcides Escobar, the Kansas City All Star Shortstop, and Lorenzo Cain, Kansas City's All Star Outfielder, the Royals sure had a strong presence in this years' MLB All Star Game, and heck, why wouldn't they? They made it to the World Series last year and my goodness, that was a nail-biting, seven game series that shall be remembered for years to come.
