Almost every professional hitter knows the difference between a ball and strike, but it is there ability to recognize the type of pitch and location showing the definition to me as having a "good eye".
Very true. Well I guess you could still make the argument that he has very good "patience" at the plate.
Whether it is due to pitch recognition, inability to hit the ball, or simple patience.
