    It doesn’t appear that the actual lenses were broken in any of these instances.  That would be a really expensive deal.  It looks like there’s a glass plate at the front of the lens housing that is smashed by errant pitches.  I’m sure it’s a fairly expensive piece of glass, but certainly not as expensive as those HD lenses must cost.
