See more pitches
The #1 WAY to improve your vision skills is to simply SEE MORE PITCHES!
With less than half a second to see the pitch, react and hit the ball, the eyes are not fast enough to see the ball at every moment during the flight of the pitch. Instead of relying only on the eyes, the brain fills in those gaps left by the eyes by using snapshots from its memory bank. This memory bank is comprised of all the past pitches that a hitter has seen. In order to build up a reliable memory bank, you have to see A LOT of pitches!
Ways to see more pitches…
- Stand in on teammates’ bullpens.
- Hit live pitching in practice.
- Watch videos of pitches from home plate view.
- Use apps or VR technology.
