Title: Pilot Study of Improving the Performance of Collegiate Baseball Players Through the Use of Visual Learning Techniques
Author: Stancil, Christie Anne
Advisors: Dr. Carolyn S. Love, Committee Chair
Abstract: College baseball is a highly competitive sport. Schools have to win in order to gain the attention of the top prospects. For a team to be successful, players have to excel in every part of the game. The pitchers must not allow runs to score, and hitters must score runs. However, hitting is one of the hardest skills in all of sports. Nomar Garciapara says a batter is trying to hit a round ball with a round bat, square (ESPN broadcast). The purpose of this pilot study was to compare the mechanics and performances of college baseball players before the use of video analysis and after video analysis. Through this comparison, the data collected was used to judge if the mechanics and performances of these eleven players improved.
