Tampa Bay Rays manager Joe Maddon sporting new glasses

Rays manager Joe Maddon has a new look.

Maddon switched Friday from his iconic thick-framed black glasses to a slightly thinner, more modern — though still black — frame.

"I'd been wanting to do something different," Maddon said. "The people I got the last ones from offered up some new stuff, and when she pulled these out of the box, it was exactly what I was looking for. So I went with it."

Maddon arrived in Tampa Bay in 2006 sporting his Buddy Holly-style Hugo Boss frames (model name, of all things, the Yankee), then switched to a slightly thinner model a couple of years ago. The new ones — if you are interested — are from Polo, model PH2057.
