How Do the Pitcher's Emotions Effect Batters?

The expression of emotions serves as a source of information and provides clues about what is likely to happen in social situations in general, and in baseball in particular. This is the finding of a joint study by researchers from the University of Haifa and the University of Amsterdam in the Netherlands, published in the journal Frontiers in Psychology. “Other peoples’ emotions provide information. The expression of emotions can mark for us what the person is thinking and what they are about to do. If we read others’ emotions well, we will be better able to anticipate their behavior and to adapt our behavior to that of others,” explains Dr. Arik Cheshin of the University of Haifa, who undertook the study.
