Daisuke Miura started learning how to speed read as a part of his attempt to train his brain during the off-season.  According to speed reading consultant Mayumi Kure, people that speed read and athletes at the top of their game have similar brain wave patterns.  This concept interested Miura and he took his first speed reading class with Kure at the end of January.

Miura is now checking to see if the lesson may have helped with his baseball skills.
