The field of applied sports psychology emerged in the early 20th century. Scientists became interested in how athletes like Babe Ruth achieved such outstanding results.
Their studies rapidly expanded from physical skills to the ways cognitive skills like memory, perception, attention, and focus affected athletic performance.
Since then, the field of sports psychology has developed into a field of study in its own right. Now several colleges offer graduate programs and coursework leading to licensure.
