In case you never noticed I am a huge Atlanta Braves fan. I was reading this Braves fan site recently after the Braves player’s record tying ten straight hits (tied a National League record), I wanted to find out more about this Matt Diaz. When I noticed that during spring training, the Braves checked Matt Diaz eyes and found out he had almost no depth perception. A major league hitter without depth perception…wow.

Evidently you can fix this with contacts (though I am not sure how that works). No big surprise that he has hit like a monster this year. Now the crazy part:

The Royals and the Devil Rays (he previous teams) never had his eyes checked. Someone got fired over that I bet.
