> It's actually the last 10' and I know you will say you see it the last 10' so am I superhuman and the answer is no you are not superhuman. Anybody can see the ball the last 10' if that's where they want to see it at, but I would rather make sure I see it where it counts and that is when I get to the point of no return with my swing.
> In order to see the ball the last 10' your eyes will have to jump at some point in the flight of the ball causing you to lose it when it is on it's way in.
Where do you get this info from that your eyes have to jump to see the pitch all the way in?
Seeing the ball out of the hand is very important, seeing the mid flight of the ball is just as important, and seeing the ball into the hitting zone is also just as important.
Doing so is possible if it is actually concentrated on and practiced.
Practicing seeing and focusing on the ball is just as important as the mechanical portion of the swing...maybe more important.
