A few seasons ago Pujols had changed up his stance a bit and instead of being mostly sideways and looking at the pitcher with primarily just his left side, he adjusted his head and now faces his head directly at pitchers. For the reasons of his right eye being dominant.

That doesnt proove its legit science or that it works for everyone, just throwin it out there that it has been discussed in major sports. Id be willin to be Sports Science did a piece on it also, ill try and search for a link.
There are TONS of reasons Hitters change stances TONS. Plus Pujols is a Pull Hitter

yes 2 eyes does work better then one, which is a better way to see the ball, i have never heard of a baseball player only using one eye to see a baseball. but unless your playing darts or some small game like that. I just don't believe something like that will help a person putting. i see it as more of a excuse then a adjustment.

Same boat here. It seems difficult to do anyway, unless you can't turn your head. If a batter is making an effort to have their head not facing the pitcher it wouldn't surprise me if they had problems with pulling their head and taking their eye off the ball. Seems like a poor way to bat no matter what.

And thank you for the opportunity to caddy. Giddy about it already.

You may be right, it could be BS. But, I dont think that its a situation where people are using one squinting eye (as a crude and obviously over simplified example) i think in the case of hitters, it helps them easier identify the rotation of the ball and determine what sort of pitch it will be, since one eye or the other is supposedly dominant. In a short glance over at google, this seems to be widely considered legit both in baseball coaching and in eye related medical fields.

I did read, a small % of people dont have a dominant eye, maybe thats you although i read several times the figure of 2/3 of the population is right eye dominant. Also your handedness, has no bearing on which eye is dominant. Like i said it likely can be a non issue for most, especially if you arent having any problems previously with your eyesight. It may not help you at all. But some people seem to think that it helps them, so idk. Im sure feldy-science can have a way of sounding ridiculous tho.

Do you have a harder time with slippery/natural tee pads? If so what do you do to compensate?
I've always toe pivoted as well. I tried to change to the heel pivot but its hard to change now. glad to hear that not all great players heel pivot.

I'm not sure if having just the dominant eye would help. Compare it to vision. For instance, both of my eyes individually have worse eyesight than when using both.


And Feldy-science, whether right or wrong, is entertaining.
