How Color Blind Glasses Changed a Baseball Player's Carrer
John McKee was a promising young baseball player from Southern California who, in his senior year at Redlands Valley High School, signed to play at the University of San Francisco for the 2017 season. After a season at USF, however, he left. He wasn’t hitting. He transferred to San Bernardino College the next season but did no better. He dropped out of baseball completely. Untethered and unsure, he joined the Navy hoping to train in Special Forces. He felt grounded again for eight months until he was asked to take a color blind test. It turned out McKee was color blind. He had to leave the Navy too.
