Reflex And Think Mechanics
Do you recall, putting your hand near a hot stove, feeling the heat; quickly pulling your hand away? In this example, the hand moves at lightning speed. The subconscious mind triggers your reflex system, pulling the hand away from danger. The conscious mind, communicating to your thinking muscles; is incapable of triggering, the speed-to-react. The same principles apply to hit a dominant fastball. In the dugout, and on-deck circle plant the seed in your subconscious mind, looking for a fastball; around the middle of home plate. Stepping into the batter’s box, switch to Reflex mode, allowing the eyes and subconscious mind to pilot your swing. Limiting, conscious thoughts is critical to unlocking the speed of your reflex system; producing the bat speed to match the dominant fastball.
