RAPID DECISIONS HAPPEN IN MILLISECONDS...

0–100

MILLISECONDS

Hitters begin processing critical visual details about the ball as it exits the hand – how fast hitters process these details impacts how quickly they recognize the pitch

100–200

MILLISECONDS

Hitters make rapid judgments about the velocity and trajectory of the ball – this processing  impacts  how well they predict where and when the ball will cross the hitting zone

200–300

MILLISECONDS

Hitters are deciding to commit the swing or to take – the brain activates an inhibition command to stop the impulse to swing OR sends swing timing signals to optimize bat-to-ball contact

300-400

MILLISECONDS

Hitters who have committed the swing can make small swing and timing adjustments to optimize contact – however, hitters will have little chance to check their swing at this point

REACHING THE TOP

“S2 Cognition is an invaluable tool that allows me and my coaching staff to get a detailed, inside look at how our players process information and make split-second decisions. Knowing each player’s cognitive skills helps us better understand why they excel and struggle in certain situations so that we can best develop their talents and individualize their development.”

Tim Corbin, 2019 NCAA Division I National Champion Head Coach from Vanderbilt University
