It's probably a leading reason why some checked swings don't get called. I know that it's the reason on a few of mine.
Yeah, that's usually the case with me. I can track the pitch right up to my mask, but when the batter swings at such a pitch, there sometimes is a blink involved. The human eye blinks naturally every few seconds anyway. I'm way too relaxed back there to consciously think about whether or not I am blinking. I just stay as focused as possible on every pitch.
