This is an original press photo. Los Angeles, Calif.--Los Angeles Angels outfielder Leon Wagner sits in optometrist's office during an eye checkup. Wagner, batting .337 and tied for first place in leading home runs for the American League, has no trouble hitting the ball. He does have problems during night play, however. The glasses he will be fitted with will give him a jump on the ball while fielding. He will probably wear them at the plate and outfield.
