Josh Hamilton’s Eyes

Interesting post about Josh Hamilton, who the Mets will see this weekend, and his struggles during days games. His splits look legit: For his career, Hamilton has a .976 OPS during night games against .728 during the day, though the sample of night games is much larger. The above post quotes an ophthalmologist who suggests that this may be a real phenomenon for the light eyed, as blue and green eyes have more glare. Or something. But I guess this is good news for the Mets, who play day games against Texas on Saturday and Sunday.

If you were wondering, as a group, MLB hitters have slightly better numbers during day games this season, .716 OPS during the day to .705 at night, but slightly better numbers during night games each of the last six season.
