Flak Jacket XLJs Save Little Leaguer's Eye

Flak Jacket saves Eyes

Dear Oakley Field Testing

I am writing this email to let you know how good of a product I think you have. My name is Chris Harris and I am the manager of the 8 and under Texarkana Arkansas East All Star team. We had just recently won the Arkansas Dixie State Championship and had the honor of playing in the Regional World Series in Cleveland Mississippi. My son plays second base for our team (Jackson Harris). On August 1, 2011 we were playing against Panola Texas in the semi finals when a kid from the other team hit a hard ground ball between 1st and 2nd base. My 1st baseman could not get to it so Jackson was moving towards him to back him up. As he was going for the ball the ball took a bad hop and hit my son in the right eye. As soon as it hit him I heard the pop and immediately ran onto the field. When I got to him his nose was bleeding and of course I thought the worst. He was wearing a pair of the Flak Jacket XLJ. I truly believe those Oakley’s saved his eye as you can see by the scar on the lens.

Thanks for making such a quality product. By the way I have been wearing your product for about 25 years. I have recently purchased a pair of your Straight Jacket XL sunglasses and love them. Keep up the good work!
