ATLANTA (AP) - Freddie Freeman is back in the Braves' starting lineup, wearing sports glasses he hopes will be a cure for his vision problems.
Freeman says he was the first player in the clubhouse on Wednesday and immediately tore into a package waiting at his locker. He pulled out his Oakley sports glasses and took off for the batting cage, still wearing his shorts and polo shirt.
The first baseman emerged from the cage with smiles and high-fives to manager Fredi Gonzalez and others. Freeman had missed four straight starts.
