I stand corrected

5

Yesterday I essentially said that Hamilton blaming the color of his eyes for his day-time hitting woes was, well, a bunch of hooey (#1 comment on the thread). The link above---the basis for this post---refutes my skepticism. Here's the money quote from an optometrist (internal link mine)t: "Because of the lack of pigment in lighter color eyes -- like blue or green eyes as opposed to brown -- you get a lot more unwanted light and that can create glare problems," said Dr. Richard L. Ison, O.D., an optometrist since 1990 who currently works in Murphy, just northeast of Dallas. Ison said the phenomenon is called intraocular light scatter, meaning the light scatters as it enters, producing a focal point that isn't as good. His solution for Hamilton: Find a pair of sunglasses that he's completely comfortable wearing while batting. So I stand corrected. But seriously, how can this not have been discussed somewhere in regular baseball coverage over the 30 plus years I've been following the sport in Kansas City and Chicago? - TL
