Pitching with Glasses: Acceptable or No-Go?

You guys might not know this about me but I play DIII college ball. Nbd but really kbd. I may not be (and by "may not be" I mean "am definitely not") one of the best on the team or anything like that but I can make a deuces wild call like none other. My in-game stats may not be eye popping. But look at my teammates' numbers when I'm running "2s" on the bench and my numbers become HOF worthy.

So yesterday we played a doubleheader against a school in our conference. Nothing too serious, just a tune-up kind of game to shake out the cobwebs. Naturally nobody wanted to be that guy who gets too fired up about a fall ball game but then I saw them.

This kid pitching for the other was rocking the worst glasses in the league. No contest. Not just rec specs bad, but two-bit-noodle-version-of-Rick-Vaughn bad. And it sparked the question in my mind: is pitching with glasses ok? Like is that a normal thing to do? Because I don't think it is. I see a kid like the pitcher yesterday and I feel it in my plums. It's just wrong. What do you guys think?
