    Hey guys I currently play outfield for my baseball team. I am having a little bit of trouble judging depth on flyballs on "high sky" days when there are no clouds in the sky, just a blue background and some glare. What color lenses would be best for aiding in depth perception while also blocking out the glare from the sun? Thanks.

    Fire all the way for me on those kinds of days. I find a contrast lens like fire is better for picking a ball up around the horizon where it can be a little hazy

    MLB players run Black Iridium, +Red, and Ice also. There's really no going wrong as all these lenses have some of the lowest light transmission ratings.

    I'd personally pick Ice for bright day baseball. It's nearly as dark as black but slightly better with contrast imo. I haven't had experience with Fire, but based on the simulator, white objects pop out way better with Ice, and greens aren't as compromised.
