For 70 mph. , and for 100 mph. 54 ft. Using mean figures for "movement reaction time" plus "movement time", we get corresponding estimates of 32, 45, 60, and 63 ft. 20 sec. , and for "movement reaction time" 34,49,65, and 69 ft. Note that for fast balls or for something like "movement reaction time" the batter may have to get his signal us or before rhe pitcher releases the bull. (Hubbard, 1955, p. 368). 24 F . Allard Hubbard (1955) also makes the point that it is incorrect to think of batting as a reaction time task.

In Hubbard's words: To find the point at which the batter would have to get his signal to start to react, we multiply ball flight (60 ft. roughly) by the fraction, interval to "react and move" divided by interval of ball flight at the speeds of pitched balls. A ball travels 60 ft. 41 sec. Using mean figures for "starting reaction time" plus "movement time", we get for 50 mph. , for 70 mph. , and for 100 mph. 54 ft. Using mean figures for "movement reaction time" plus "movement time", we get corresponding estimates of 32, 45, 60, and 63 ft.
