How does an outfielder in baseball know exactly where a fly ball is going to come down?


Are these guys that good at geometry or logorythmns with such speed?

    if the ball lands it's either a home run, a foul ball or a ball not caught. practice reinforces the pathways in the brain that allows your body to make unconscious responses in split seconds giving you your best shot at a catch.

    really..you mean some guys are NOT Willie Mays. Many balls are misplayed even by the pros. if the outfielder cannot hear the crack of the bat he is at a disadvantage because thats the first indication he will get as to how the ball was hit.
