The auditory system is something I found quite interesting. It processes how we hear and understand sounds within the environment. By hearing future sound it warns us about what to expect next, for example, blind baseball players ! “The pitch is timed and placed with the intent of the batter connecting with the ball (players’ batting averages typically run from .500 to .750). This is the reason for the pitcher’s “Ready, set, ball” warning, as well as why he pitches from just 20 feet in front of the batter. Each batter gets four strikes rather than three, but each team gets three outs, the one exception being if a fielder actually catches a ball on the fly.” With the audible warning, the batter is able to hit the ball without visually seeing it.
