Dallas Stars great Marty Turco, FC Dallas’ Christ Seitz at unveiling of Perot
In a formidable “battle of the goalies,” former Dallas Stars
goaltender Marty Turco and current FC Dallas goalkeeper Chris Seitz
will help unveil a new interactive “reaction time exhibit” at the
Perot Museum of Nature and Science on Thursday, June 8. The
interactive display, located in the Museum’s Lamar Hunt Family Sports
Hall, uses a light board to measure hand-eye coordination and reaction
speed as participants strike randomly lit targets in an allocated
time. Will the hockey pro, who stopped speeding pucks while wearing 50
pounds of equipment, prevail over his in-the-prime soccer competitor
accustomed to diving to defending a larger goal? Will memory muscle
play a role? And which prepares you best – playing on ice or on turf?
