Why is vision training important for baseball & softball?

Vision training enhances an athletes' visual abilities; before your skill can be used what has to happen first?  Your eyes have to process the infomation (optic nerve processes) before your hard earned skill you worked for can be used.  So my question is this, why do we spend so much time on our swing when the first part of a successful hitter is the ability to use and recognize the pitch which happens thru their eyes (visual flexibility)?  Think about it- it makes alot of sense.  We developed a visual trainer that has helped many of our clients thru the years with focus, concentration and tracking with our Think Outside The Diamond visual trainer.  Get your own visual trainer and don't drop the ball in getting all the performance you deserve.  Click here to shop.
