Players shouldn't have to leave their corrective lenses at home, so go ahead and find the perfect pair of prescription baseball glasses today.
Often referred to as America's favorite pastime, baseball has deep roots that tie into our nation's history. During the mid 19th century, the sport quickly gained popularity by the general public in New York City. Soon after, the National Association of Base Ball Player was formed to help organize games and seasons.
Today, baseball remains one of the most popular sports in America. It may not receive the same number of television viewers as football or basketball but it's the second most popular sport in terms of participation. Tens of millions of people, young and old, pick up their gloves each year to enjoy the historic game of baseball.
