Louisiana Lafayette has one of the top softball teams in the country, and one of their star players is junior pitcher Christina Hamilton. Hamilton also happens to have a pretty unique look in the circle that any sports fan has to appreciate. Hamilton wears black, plastic, horned-rimmed glasses just like Rick “Wild Thing” Vaughn did in “Major League.”
Unlike Vaughn, though, Hamilton’s glasses are lens-less.
As they described on ESPNU during ULL’s super regional game with Arizona Friday, Hamilton began wearing the lens-less glasses during a summer league game in high school as a joke. One of the lenses popped out on her sunglasses and a teammate said, “you’re not going to go out there like that, are you?” In response, Hamilton popped out the other lens and went out to pitch. It’s been her signature look ever since.
The Christina Hamilton glasses have even become a popular look among the Ragin’ Cajun fans:
Hamilton entered Friday’s game 27-2 with a 1.53 ERA. She might even be better than Vaughn.Google+
