Visual Perception and Baseball


Program Description:

What do the eyes do when one is hitting a baseball? What should one’s eyes do (to be a good hitter)? How does the visual system calculate how to catch a fly ball? Is there such a thing as a rising fastball? What about a late-breaking curveball? These questions and others will be answered in this talk.
