Excerpts

Applying the Principles: Baseball Batting

This is an excerpt from Motor Learning and Performance 6th Edition With Web Study Guide-Loose-Leaf Edition. It may seem from the previous section that sometimes contradictory princi­ples are involved in ­these rapid actions.

This task requires several of the pro­cesses discussed so far, such as anticipation and timing, prediction of the ball's spatial trajectory and its arrival time at the coincidence point, and rapid movements that must be both forceful and accurate, so the princi­ples can be applied to vari­ous...

The separation between the targets (termed A, for movement amplitude) and the width of the targets (termed W, for target width) could be varied in dif­fer­ent combinations (see figure 6.1). The movement time (MT) taken to complete ­these rapid taps increased systematically with ­either increases in the movement amplitude (due to a larger distance between the targets) or decreases in the target width (due...
