Summary
Increasingly science and technology are providing a crucial performance edge to athletes and officials and even enhancing the spectator's experience the game. In Calgary, Alan visits with Joan Vickers, and finds out how her research on where athletes focus their gaze has improved the skills of basketball and tennis players, golfers -- even darts players. Alan goes to Fenway Park to checkout the high tech equipment -- a spin-off from research into tracking missiles -- helping baseball umpires separate balls from strikes. And Alan visits the Tennis Science Center at UC Davis to pick up some tips on his own favorite sport
