Bryce Harper Wears His Everyday Glasses during a Game

While the specs are indeed both interesting and fashionable, they're also completely necessary and practical, as Harper is apparently more or less blind.
It's commonly agreed that hitting a baseball is one of the more difficult things to do, even with perfect eyesight, so Harper's well ahead of the curve.
In fact, he passed on the glasses in his second plate apperance and produced an RBI single, which was pretty heroic considering his handicap.
This just adds to the growing legend of Bryce Harper, although he might want to get a second opinion on those frames.
At press time, the endorsment deal with Gloria Vanderbilt had yet to be announced.
