Just finished playing 60 AAA at Big League Dreams on Sunday. At the 8:00am game, the sun was so bad that there was 11 strikeouts recorded. Does anyone have ideas on glasses, etc that could help prevent this again/ The UIC would not allow the pitcher to move right or left to help with the vision. We are playing 50's this weekend and don't want to go thru that again. Any ideas would be appreciated.

unfortunately its just bad luck. 6.16 states Sun position affecting the batter is not a potential safety issue and shall not be a basis for suspension of play.

Both teams are given the same disadvantage.

You must be talking about Dodger stadium. Been there experienced it. SSUSA needs to revisit the rule about moving the pitcher. It is a safety issues if you have eye issues that most seniors start to experience.

Donnie, Go to your nearest welding supply store and buy welder's glasses. They look like wraparound sunglasses.
They come in different grades, I believe #3, #4 and #5. Take them outside and try looking into the sun with each grade to see which level of darkness works best for you. I have four pairs that I keep in my bat bag to share with my teammates.

If you use the darkest grade you may have to leave them on until the sun is no longer an issue. They are so dark that your eyes can't adjust fast enough if you try to take them off intermittently. Hope this helps.

I sell these Price is $20 not $23. Come by the tent Oct 14th. I usually have 5 or 6 pairs until they sell out. Very popular. I use them for second base. Don't loose pop ups in the sun anymore. Great filter for batting into the sun too.
