Can someone teach me the physics of baseball?
    #545186 - 04/11/11 03:20 AM (5 years, 6 months ago)

So say someone pitches a fastball 95 mph and then another player pulls a fast grounder down their baseline, doesn't matter if its 3rd or 1st. What else (beside pitch speed) if any would I need? and what formulas would I also need? I ask because I was watching some baseball stoned (awesome btw :awesomenod:) and I was wondering how much it would hurt to get hit by a grounder while knocking it down to make the play. I mean I've been playing baseball for awhile but only at like the vaa levels. (Idk does anywhere else have VAA?) But was wondering what it'd be like by a pro one, ya know? This might be a HB question?

(Alright I guess this could go in the sports bar too but it will get more traffic here. Modsyou can go ahead and move it there once it gets answered, thanks :awesome:)

too many variables for me to figure out right now

like bat weight, length, contact point, speed, speed of the ball, ball weight, and im sure a few other ones too, im no physicist

Try it out Happy Gilmore style. Go to the batting cages, set that shit on "fast" and take one for science.

Of course it's happening inside your head.
Why should that mean it isn't real?
