The 2011 draft class took vision assessment tests at Nagoya Stadium on Saturday

1st round draft pick Shuhei Takahashi recorded solid numbers across the board, but of the ten tests he took, he did particularly well on depth perception and instantaneous field of view tests.

6th round draft pick Sang-Hoon Son did extremely well with the movement tracking test -- hypothetically, he should be able to hit 160km/h fastballs.
