"Leon Durham played for the Cubs from 1981 to 1988. He came to Chicago after the 1980 season along with third baseman Ken Reitz and infielder-outfielder Ty Waller from St. Louis for relief pitcher Bruce Sutter . Prior to the 1984 campaign, Durham tried two changes... with opposite results. During Spring Training that year, Durham switched from glasses to contact lenses. He had trouble with contacts, however, claiming that he 'wasn't really seeing what I should see.' Durham switched back to glasses, and felt more comfortable with them. 'I was very relaxed,' he says, 'and confident of what the pitchers were throwing at me.' Durham went on to clout 33 homers and knock in 99 runs that season. He wore glasses the rest of his career." Author Pete Cava in Tales from the Cubs Dugout (Sports Masters Publishing, 08/04/2000, Page 79)
