MLB betting fans know that if you can’t see, you can’t pick up ground balls or fly balls right away. You can’t pick up that nasty slider your pitcher expects you to catch – and you certainly can’t hit it. Major League Baseball has long put ocular workouts and computer-based vision drills to work for their players, but now players are using food to get better sight as well. A 2014 study by researchers at the University of Georgia connected improvements in visual processing speed and reaction time with daily intake of zeaxanthin, a nutrient that appears in paprika and many vegetables with heavy pigment. As of now, all 30 of the teams in the league have started working with the nutrient, including such players as Pittsburgh second baseman Neil Walker, who started using it after having dry eyes and needing to squint during games. His supplement made him feel like his vision was better, and he didn’t need to squint as much during day games.
