Sunglasses Are Important For Baseball Players
For baseball players, sunglasses are an important piece of your baseball apparel.
Think about it, in college and professional baseball, a majority of games are played during the day. Since most baseball stadiums don’t have roofs, those players are going to spend a lot of time in the sun. Sunshine can make it tough to play on the field, so making sure you're able to play your best ball is key.
If you’re want to buy a pair of baseball sunglasses, there are a few things you need to consider. Just as the right baseball bat is important to your game, the same can be said for baseball sunglasses, they will be important for both offense and defense.
Visual Enhancements: Visual enhancements are a big benefit these Oakley sunglasses can provide. You need to clearly see a small white ball against the blue sky. How many times have you struggled to see the ball in the sun?
Now, you also need to see a white ball in different shades of green and brown. With all the different textures and colors, it's much tougher to see everything in the sunlight. The Flak 2.0 XL can help you in all these areas. It accentuates blues and keeps the ball white bright so you can see it clearer. It also increases the saturation of the grass and dirt so you can see it better. There’s no one in the game better and if you want to improve your game, make these Oakley® sunglasses your own.
UV Protection: The coverage your sunglasses provides is important, but many people don't think about it. The amount of coverage you get is another thing you need to consider. A larger frame may be a better option for those of you that want maximum protection. Taller lenses can give you a wider range of coverage while also preventing the sun from getting into your eyes during gameplay.
Contrast Lenses: One of these is the contrast lenses, which will help you if you’re out in particularly sunny conditions and affect how you see color. You have an array of options in this department, and it all depends on your personal preference. - Prizm lens tech, tons of copy on oakley.com
The Perfect Fit: Have you ever bought sports sunglasses only to find out later they don’t fit your face? You’ll need to consider how the sunglasses fit on your face. It is recommended that you invest in a pair that has rubber on the nose bridge and the temples for stability and comfort. Oakley sunglasses are well known for having both of these features. - Oakley® uses rubber called unobtanium on the nose pieces and stem socks, it gets tackier when wet. When you’re sweating on the field, these baseball sunglasses are going to grip your face tighter.

Oakley® Flak 2.0 XL Sunglasses Benefits
Ask yourself this - why should I choose Oakley® Flak 2.0 XL sunglasses? Here’s a few reasons why we recommend them.
100% UV Protection: With these Oakley® sunglasses, you’re going to get 100% UV protection. Most baseball players play games in the sun, so it’s essential to have protection from the sun’s harmful UV rays. Many sunglasses only give you partial overall protection or partial protection against specific types of UV rays, so you want to make sure you’re buying sunglasses that fully protect you. The 100% UV protection allows for your eyes and face to be protected from harmful UV rays. This feature is going to allow you to have a sharp contrast on the baseball, no matter what angle or position you’re in. Since the sunglasses can cover a large area of your face as a whole, you’re going to get full protection and you’ll need to play in the sun.
Designed For Baseball: The Oakley prizm field is a baseball specific lens, designed to help you with every angle on the field. There’s a lot of sunglasses on the market you can choose from, few are designed for baseball, only one gives you the benefits of the Oakley® Radarlock.
Prizm Black Sport Lens: The great thing about the Oakley® Flak 2.0 XL lens is that they can be changed out. While this can be beneficial for baseball, this is a great feature to have for those of you that enjoy biking, motocross, or canyoning - you always need to be aware of changes in the texture of the landscape, such as rocks, trees, mountains, roads, etc.
If the sun is in your eyes, it can affect your vision, that can put you in danger. Prizm sports lenses only allow around 11% light transmission, which means that your vision is minimally impacted by the sun’s brightness. This is what you want on the baseball field, you don’t want the sun causing you visual problems.
Plutonite Lens Material: The material used to craft a lens is very important as it determines the lifespan of the lens, as well as the impact it can withstand. Oakley’s Plutonite lenses are not only comfortable, but they offer superior protection against impact. They also filter out UV rays while allowing the wearer to see clearly. If you play baseball long enough, you’re going to have scenarios where you’ll have an impact, so knowing you have protection is important.
Impact Tested: There are two types of ANSI Z87.1 impact tests
- High Velocity
- High Mass
Both tests are testing the durability of not only the lens material but also lens and frame design. These are no sugar coated tests either, they involve a quarter inch steel ball fired at 102mph and a one pound, one ounce steel spike dropped from 4 feet 2 inches. Long story short, these Oakley® baseball sunglasses pass both tests.
Cleaning and Storage Bag: This storage bag comes with the necessary equipment to store your glasses and clean them properly. This ensures that they’re kept safe, can be placed inside of your stand bag or golf travel bag, as well as remain in peak condition to protect your eyes while out in the sun.
