(Boswell, 1990, p. 242) To recapitulate, it is the contention of this chapter that knowledge-cognition is vital in real world skilled motor performance. Knowledge is important for formulating the intended goals of actions; as well, knowledge facilitates actual performance. Salthouse (1991) conceptualizes the study of expertise as the study of how people have learned to overcome normal constraints on information processing; in his words, skilled performance boils down to a "circumvention-oflimitations" (Salthouse, 1991, p.

1990). The batting data are important because the information available from the environment does not change as a function of the count. This means the same information about time to contact is available in all counts. Pitchers work very hard to not "telegraph" the type of pitch by throwing different pitches with the same arm motion, thus reducing predictive cues as much as possible.
