Batter is in the box. Catcher moves his eyes up and sideways to the batter's face. Is he trying to see if the batter is looking down to see the catcher's hand signals ?

I have read that a batter with sunglasses can somehow see the catcher's signals in a reflection......but not in this instance.

TIA

The batter would have to know the team sign sequence in order for it to help him.

More than likely, the sequence may change every game, might even change for specific batters.

Computers and data has put every statistic at the fingertips of managers.

So why does the catcher constantly look up at the batter's face ?

Perhaps the catcher thinks the batter is cute ?
Or has an affiliation with Bill Belichick.
