 Title:     The Effect of Caffeine Withdrawal on Motor Control, Reaction Time
             and Speed of Performance in Baseball and Softball Players.

Abstract:  The relationship of caffeine consumption to sports performance among athletes was investigated.  Baseball and softball players were withdrawn from caffeinated substances and asked to perform sports specific motor tasks.  Results, controlling for effects of mood, suggest a statistical link between
caffeine withdrawal and poor motor control, reaction time and speed of performance.
