Have you ever wondered why in pool players get their eyes behind the ball and right down the stick on complex delicate shots. To see the angle of the shot, right?
Then why is it when infielders, first basemen’s, and bunter’s heads are commonly found above the ball when they are trying to catch back hands or hops, low throws or hops, or pitches thrown. Usually resulting in failure to connect with the ball. Simple, they can not read the angles.
Getting behind the ball at all times no matter what your doing in the game will allow one to see its movement. For infielders backhands should be done with 70% of your weight on the back leg, first basemen’s need to bend their knees coming up to the ball and not commit to the ball to early, and bunter's hold the bat out front and lower your body not the barrel to hit the ball.
Know the Why.
