Then, this process is used to explain why the number of home runs in major league baseball increased starting in Finally, this chapter discusses three baseball myths. Myth 1, left-handed batters are better. Myth 2, opposite handedness is an advantage for the batter. Myth 3, eye–hand cross-dominance is an advantage for the : A. Terry Bahill. The incidence of central eye dominance is considerably higher than the general population. The best hitters were centrally eye dominant or crossed eye-hand dominant. The poorest hitters were uncrossed eye-hand dominant. The top four pitchers were either uncrossed or centrally ocular dominant. Interestingly, players with central ocular dominance had the best batting averages and ERAs. The final and most recent report concerning the possible association between dominance and performance was published early in This report studied members of the minor league (AA) Southern Baseball League. Ninety-two hitters were studied, and no statistically significant difference was found between dominance patterns and batting average.
If the finger/thumb was placed between the two eyes rather than in any way obscuring an eye then the dominance was deemed to be mixed.

It begins in the off-season with tee drills and soft toss. As the season approaches they progress to on-field batting practice and live BP with. The biggest misconception is that eye dominance plays an important role in visual performance in baseball. A study was done several years ago that showed equal hitting performance for same sided and cross dominant athletes.
