Chevrolet Home Run Derby and All-Star Game participants wearing Transitions® adaptive sun lenses in Nike® frames

PINELLAS PARK, Fla., July 16, 2013 – Major League Baseball players participating in this week’s Major League Baseball Chevrolet Home Run Derby and All-Star Game® received custom-made sunglasses from Nike Vision and Transitions Optical, featuring an adaptive sun lens that changes color and tint as light changes.

The lenses feature an exclusive Transitions® adaptive lens with a red flash-mirror coating in a Nike Show X2 frame, engineered for advanced sport performance.

“The custom Nike MAX Transitions product is a terrific way to display our advanced technology to a national audience,” said Grady Lenski, managing director, adjacencies, Transitions Optical. “The quickly changing light conditions of an evening baseball game provide the perfect forum for adaptive lenses,” he added.
