How Our Training Works

There's a BIG difference between good eye-sight and effective eye-sight.

Depth Perception

Step 1

A hitter's pitch recognition to identify moving objects in three dimensions. 

More importantly, it allows the hitter to judge and anticipate a baseball's speed and distance. In order to have optimized depth perception, the hitter must be effective at using both eyes simultaneously. 

The better the eyes work together, the better the result. Period.

Speed of Eye Dilation

Step 1

A hitter's speed of eye dilation is the speed of focus on objects moving further and closer from the head and eyes. 

How quickly the eyes dilate will affect the hitter's pitch recognition abilities while judging balls, strikes and pitch types. 

During an at-bat, the closer the pitch gets to the hitter the more the eyes will dilate. The quicker the dilation, the quicker the reaction.

Visualization & Recall

Step 3

Your ability to remember previous pitches and at-bats will have a direct impact on the types of adjustments you make in each at-bat. 

Also - rehearsing success by simulating successful at-bats in the past will allow you to develop your confidence and competitive mind-set abilities.

Baseball Pitch Recognition & Vision Training

Visual Tracking

Step 3

Visual Tracking occurs when the hitter's eyes lock on a point of focus.

 For hitters, it's the ball, the seams, plane of the pitch and where the ball ends up.  

Tracking is crucial for a hitter’s pitch recognition skills to anticipate balls and strikes, where the defense is positioned and breaking balls that have a large break in its plane. 

Visual tracking is also important on defense. 

Having a full perspective of the field as you anticipate one play from the next.

Visual Reaction Time

Step 2

The optic nerve transmutes visible information from the retina to the brain. 

Think of your optic nerve system as a Mac Book Computer. 

The quicker the data is processed the slower the ball will seem in the zone. 

This process runs at its absolute best when you are relaxed. Ever notice how the pitch looks like a balloon when you're taking in a 3-0 count? 

The muscles around the eyes are relaxed which allows you to pick up the pitch out o the pitcher's hand more efficiently.
