Pitching With Sunglasses


Larry Spurr from Cedar Lake, IN asks:

Is there a MLB rules that states the pitcher can not wear sunglasses on the mound unless they are prescription sunglasses?

There is no rule forbidding a pitcher from wearing sunglasses while pitching. The only reason why an umpire might not want the pitcher to wear them is because they are distracting to the batter or umpire either because of their color or the glare they give off.
