Those are nice. Good thing with those if she jacks up the lenses, ear pieces, or nose piece you can by replacements for just those parts.
Not sure what level/age you are referring to here Coach (this is a post in the College section of the forum) but I'm unclear (pun intended) as to what you have a such a big pet peeve with? Is it wearing sunglasses or eye protection in general or having an athlete that doesn't take care of or maintain their equipment (which sunglasses IMHO are)? Have you ever had a player that wears contacts and sunglasses to keep out the wind and dust? One of my DD's is a C and that can certainly be a problem, at times we've used clear or the yellow optic lenses just to help with that. The other DD is a P/CF and she knows how to use the glove to shield the sun as well as any player but also benefits from a good pair of shades. Perhaps it's just this type of sunglasses (which you seem to infer) in which case you've really lost me? Why would they, in particular drive you nuts?Ok....as a coach, it was one of my biggest pet peeves.....have you ever looked at your daughters glasses after a game or a tournament? Generally, they are full of dust, fingerprints, smudges, sweat, etc.....more often than not, difficult to look through. On top of that, I haven't see too many pairs that aren't full of scratches. In softball, especially in the infield, reaction time and a clear eyesight is very important. If your daughter does a GREAT job of keeping them clean and free from scratches, i understand. But if not, invest in a visor and teach them how to block the sun with their glove! SECONDLY, it drives me nuts to see a player walk up to the plate in these same glasses. Unless the glasses are the type that help a player see the ball more clearly, please don't allow them to walk up to the plate wearing a dirty, scratched up, finger printed up pair of glasses. But, if we are paying crazy money for cleats, bats, gloves, bags, etc., why would we then buy them cheap sunglasses, especially when the most important aspect of their ability to play is their eyesight!
