This whole sunglasses-on-the-cap kick is something old crusty umpires who feel anything outside of the "true" uniform should not be tolerated. They are the ones who get bent out of shape over players wearing their caps off-centered or with their bills completely flattened, who wear their pant legs over the heel of the shoe, who put too much eye black on their faces, etc., etc. I remember a couple of those umpires in my son's old Little League organization who would make a fuss over kids who wore two different colored socks, or who wore fitted caps when other players had adjustable ones. Really?
I guess that's what happens when I point out something logical.

No one likes an OOJ (Over-officious jerk).
Realistic officiating does the sport good.

Cool Softball Platers Wearing Sunglasses alot

My daughter plays softball and got hit in the face by a pitch. I bought her sunglasses at the beginning of the season from a local store and they were expensive. She lost that pair and I bought anther affordable pair at this best sunglasses website.

They arrived quickly and she was protected for the rest of the season.

Thank god

A UIC felt the same way. I'd have a tough time taking that step. What happens on your fields?
Why would you even worry about this. The umpire that makes an issue over this is just asking for trouble.
