imagine his numbers in Juco is he had glasses/contacts then.

He already had one of the best if not THE best Juco seasons as a 17 yr old ever.

honestly if you scouted him and watched him play, nothing would make you think he needed eye help

I assume Hosmer-laser eye surgery will be on Bryce's radar during the off season.

I am going to guess that these contacts will also help the pitchers on his team. Imagine how many balls must have dropped into the outfield because Harper was unable to see them until they nearly hit him on the head.
"I do not think baseball of today is any better than it was 30 years ago... I still think Radbourne is the greatest of the pitchers." John Sullivan 1914-Old athletes never change.
