Reaction rates to visual and auditory stimuli in NCAA baseball players

In an article published in the Georgia Journal of Science, student researchers use iWorx equipment to investigate the hypothesis that field position will be associated with differences in reaction rates. 

Abstract

Baseball is a sport that requires quick reflexes and fast reaction times in order to be successful. Players have to be able to make split decisions on how to react to the baseball and make the right play in the game as quickly as possible. In this study we examined the reaction times to visual and auditory signals in The Young Harris College NCAA baseball players with the hypothesis that field position will be associated with differences in reaction rates. We used the iWORX software (LabScribe) to determine each participant’s reaction times (hand and foot) to both visual and auditory stimuli. Thus, four types of reaction rates were measured for each participant: Eye-Hand, Eye-Foot, Ear-Hand and Ear-Foot reaction times. Each type of reaction time was scored 10 times in a given trial. All data have been collected and data analysis is currently underway.
