This is not necessarily because it is closer by a couple of inches, but because it is in more of an open position relative to the ball...

- I think most right handers are right eye dominant.
I had already mentioned cross-dominanace in post #3 of this thread, but this is a good explanation why X-dominanace is preferrred for baseball (but a bit of a handicap for archery and rifle-shooting).

Dunno, it most righties are really right-eyed. I've tested 2 dozen ppl or more and almost as many have been left-eyed as were right-eyed. Of course, that is not really a very large sampling.
