Youth baseball players need to be able to see when they are out on the field. Wearing traditional eyeglasses are not always possible because they are too delicate. Regardless of whether plastic or metal frames are used, they can break easily. Additionally, should a baseball fly out of a player’s hand, it is important that the lens does not break, potentially causing damage to the eye.
According to ESPN, hitters and pitchers are known to experience a number of different injuries on the field. While most of them have to do with muscle pulls, there is also something to be said about the random ball that comes flying out of left field, hitting the baseball player.
Youth players need all of the protection that they can get. When vision is not 20/20, it is necessary for youth sport glasses to be worn. These are designed with straps to keep the glasses in place while playing the game.
At Rx-Safety, there is a variety of new brands of youth sport glasses for baseball. This includes Rec Specs as well as Wiley X Valor. Each of the different brands provide unique designs and colors to allow young baseball players the opportunity to improve their vision while out on the field and looking their best at the same time.
Rec Specs, for example, offers glasses in black, white, red, and gray, amongst several other colors. Wiley X Valor have semi-rimless, wraparound frames that look more like sunglasses than anything else.
“I’m really happy with my baseball specialty glasses,” comments one customer. Baseball players of all ages want to maintain a certain image when they are out on the field. With the variety of brands that are offered for specialty sports glasses, and more specifically baseball, everyone has the opportunity to find a pair of glasses that will suit them.
Oakley and Nike have been offering sports glasses for a number of years. It allows them to offer more to sports players so that they can have a branded look with everything else.
