Baseball's biggest hoax? Mark Reynolds - blind?
Posted by Big12fan on 1/18 at 9:55 pm
Not buying it, but the writer does make you wonder a bit. No doubt Reynolds is the strike out king of kings. But totally blind? Maybe this article is a total spoof.



quote:

As a pop-up lands at the edge of the infield dirt, he walks directly away from it, with his head down, toward the dugout. Then, as if dazed, he turns and walks back to where his teammates are. It is undoubtedly a challenge to pass as a person with sight, a challenge that requires nearly constant focus and attention to the other senses. In this small moment, Reynolds likely becomes disoriented by the fans screaming increasingly loudly at the fielders attempting to catch the pop-up, and his focus lapses. Struggling to locate his position in the cacophony, he loses his direction. Once the catch is made, the crowd quiets and he again hears his teammates' chatter, and he turns to join them.

So that's why he left Showalter hanging.

It's pretty interesting to look at even though it's retarded.

Hitting in the .220s is shitty. But sorry, you can't be blind and hit .220 in the majors.

It don't take much to be 'legally bling'

I've been legally blind since I was 5.
I played center field growing up and I would have to listen for the ping of the bat, and watch the 2nd baseman to see where he was looking, and hope to get a jump on the pop flys and catch them

I was a very good ball player that hit for average and couldn't see the ball most of the time.
I was lighting fast and stole quiet a few bases after I would walk.

Later I was moved to 2nd base and even though I wore glasses and later contacts I still struggled to see the ball, both at the plate and in the field
BUT
I guess I just had a 'feel' for the game, cause I was still pretty good
