Peanuts and cracker jacks…two things historically associated with baseball as well as mentioned in the ever popular song, “Take Me Out To The Ball Game.”  I don’t know about the cracker jacks or even the peanuts for a baseball game now a days as I’m more into ice cream personally but I do know if I am heading to a baseball park for an afternoon game I will wear my hat and sunglasses to block the sun (and to best see the baseball players of course!)

Baseball players are looking like me wearing both hats and sunglasses when on the field to block the sun.  More and more baseball players are ditching the eye black paint to reduce glare from the sun and are putting on polarized sunglasses that not only reduce glare from the sun when trying to catch a ball but also protect the eyes from harmful UV-rays.  Baseball styles tend to "wrap" the facePolarized sunglasses have become the “in” piece of equipment for professional and amateur baseball players across the nation to wear during the many sunny games played throughout the spring and summer months.

Polarized sunglasses for baseball players tend to have the following qualities: strong UV protection (95%) to block the harmful sun rays, amber or grey tint lenses so that players can see balls mid-air or players clearly in the bright sun or on cloudy days, and polycarbonate lens material so that the glasses are shatterproof.   MLB players do not have any restrictions as to what types of sunglasses to wear but many wear those with the above qualities with wrap-like temples so that they stay on during moments of extreme movement or play.

Purifier polarized lenses, exclusive to Dr. Tavel, have all of these qualities and would be the best choice for any Indiana baseball star or fan (like myself) as protecting your eyes should be a top priority when you take yourself and others “out to the ball game.”
