A solid-colored, usually dark area beyond the center field wall that is the visual backdrop for the batter looking out at the pitcher. It allows the batter to see the pitched ball against a dark and uncluttered background, as much for the batter's safety as anything.
Some days I just feel like breaking out my glasses and wearing them for the day. For those of you who don't know, I actually have horrible eyesight. My prescription is a -8.0 and in eye world, that's pretty close to being extremely blind. I mean without my glasses or contacts, I can't see more than an inch away from my face. Sure there are pretty lights and blurry everything when I take them off, but for the 99% of the time when that's just not okay, I wear my glasses or contacts.
Since I have such a horrible prescription, I rarely wear my glasses because they are so thick! They make my eyes look super small and my face distorted. At least that's how I see it. Especially in pictures, I think I don't look like myself! Thankfully I have wonderful friends and family that build me up and are an amazing support system. They assure me all the time that I don't look as bad as I think, that they love my glasses, and that I see something much more negative because I'm looking through my eyes. (insert joke connecting how I see myself with not being able to see here)
I'm extremely comfortable in my own skin and very confident with every aspect of myself. So more and more, I've been wearing my glasses (I've also stopped wearing makeup!). Today, I wanted to show you a 'late morning don't feel like putting in my contacts' look for work. I dry shampooed my hair, through on a sweater and some sneaks and headed to the office! (The whole getting ready in 15 mins really helped me kick start my day).
