It is not clear that your premises are correct, but a partial answer is that 
our behavior is under stimulus control of aspects of the pitcher's motion 
that precede the release of the pitch. The stimulus control is subtle, and 
it is unlikely that even good hitters cannot articulate what is controlling 
their behavior.
