Gibbons Gets New Contacts; Contact Next?

New, 378 comments

After their one day off of the spring, the Dodgers are back in action today against the Diamondbacks at Camelback Ranch. Jay Gibbons had his eyes checked in San Francisco, got new contacts, and is back in action today. "It was night and day from the time I put them in," he told Dylan Hernandez of the LA Times. Gibbons last played on Sunday in Las Vegas against the Cubs, and has two hits in 22 at-bats this spring.

The first thing Gibbons will see today with his undeterred vision is a green uniform and cap, which the Dodgers are wearing today, on St. Patrick's Day. Let it be noted that David Young and I are both wearing green shirts today in the press box.
