Baseball/ Softball was one of the only sports I did not really play while growing up. Rosenblum was discussing in chapter two about the sound of the ball. According to Rosenblum (2010), as the ball is hit, "the loudness increases relatively slowly at first and then increases much more rapidly as the ball gets near" (p. 48). That is how the fielder knows the ball is coming and when to dive for it. Our auditory system is special because without it, it would be a little more difficult for the fielders to have the sense of when exactly to dive for the ball.
