520    Psychologist Stadler goes beneath the surface of the game 
       to explore the psychology behind the actions of the game's
       greats. He begins with the mind's role in the game's basic
       skills, explaining the anticipatory thinking that can make
       a hitter see a "rising fastball," the complex muscular 
       coordination required to throw a major league heater, and 
       the intense spatial calculations the brain must perform in
       a split second in order for a fielder to catch a struck 
       ball. He then discusses the hidden nature of streaks and 
       slumps, explaining why a "hot" hitter is most likely just 
       getting lucky and why there's no such thing as a clutch 
       hitter. He also looks at the psychological basis of the so
       -called "sophomore slump" and the effect that a big-money 
       contract has on a player's performance, and explains what 
       traits are most associated with success at the highest 
       levels.--From publisher description.
