BACKGROUND This pilot study was performed to determine the effect, if any, exerted by crossed dominance (contralateral hand and eye dominance) on the ability of novice riflemen to learn how to accurately shoot a rifle. METHODS Sighting dominance was used to determine the dominant eye. Hand dominance was determined by the arm used to shoulder the rifle in(More)
BACKGROUND This study was performed to investigate the relationship between vision reaction time (VRT) and batting, fielding, and pitching skill in baseball. METHODS A vision screening of 213 professional baseball players in the Southern Baseball League was performed, and the visual reaction times of these players were determined. Official Southern(More)
