Summer research project on bunting at Occidental

At some schools, the student-athletes really are students. Case and point, Van Fudge, and Occidental College baseball player and kineseology major took advantage of the school’s summer research program to study┬áthe effect of bilateral bunt training on baseball bunting skills and bi-manual motor coordination. He is working with two local Little Leagues on the project and hopes to evaluate the theory of bilateral transfer (the transfer of learning or performance from one side of the body after training the other).
