Christina Hamilton Rocks Rick Vaughn Glasses

Major League glasses.

Louisiana Lafayette softball pitcher Christina Hamilton has a unique look on the mound. The junior hurler wears lensless dark framed glasses during her pitching appearances. The fashion statement started as a joke in high school, but it has become part of her signature look.

Via the Advocate:

Hamilton usually pitches wearing what appears to be glasses, but they are not really functional because the lenses have been removed. It's a ritual she started in high school.

"Every athlete has a superstition, something that gives them a good feeling," Lotief said. "For (Hamilton), it's the glasses. There was a time when she took them off. I told her to put them on. She's more confident when she has them on."

The specs work for Hamilton, just like the beard works for this Minnesota hurler.
