Abstract

Imagine you are standing on third base and waiting to sprint to home plate to win the game for your baseball team. You watch as your teammate approaches the batter’s box and raises the bat to her shoulder. You are ready to spring into action as soon as you hear the smack of the ball hitting the bat. The pitcher winds up and releases the ball. It whizzes through the air, and CRACK! The ball jolts off the bat. You are primed and ready to go, you start to accelerate, when, suddenly, the second-baseman leaps up and catches the line drive in midair. You freeze in your tracks without a moment’s hesitation, still safely on the base.
