Baseball and Physics - Some Fun as the Postseason Arrives

Posted on September 27, 2013 by Chris Posa There have been 0 comments

Hello baseball fans! It's the last weekend of regular season baseball; is your team moving on? Fortunately ours is - eat 'em up TIGERS!  In the spirit of the upcoming playoffs, we thought we'd share this really cool physics-of-baseball site from David Kagan a.k.a. "Dr. Baseball."  (He's a Professor of Physics at California State University, Chico). Check out the lesson "The Sweet Spot of a Baseball Bat."
