A friend brought this article to my attention. It is about a guy who decided to experiment with steroids and found, to his amazement, that his eyesight improved. In fact, he was able to stop wearing glasses.
You don’t think improved eyesight would help a major league hitter, do you? Like, oh, I don’t know, somebody who seems incredibly disciplined at the plate and is able to recognize pitches quickly and easily. Even better than he did early in his career. Somebody, like maybe, Barry Bonds? Just a thought.
This is an issue of steroid use, as my friend pointed out, that you don’t hear discussed often. Not often enough, I think.
