For many all over the world baseball is simply a sport played with a bat, a ball and a glove. You hit the ball and run around the bases while the other team fields the ball and tries to throw you out. To others, baseball is viewed by the dynamics and mathematical strategies to produce the best possible results. However, it's not as simple as you may think it is. Pitchers can throw the ball at high speeds with bending and breaking action making it harder to hit the ball. Batters can hit the ball with excessive force and fielders can dive and make spectacular plays. But have you ever wondered what makes the ball curve when you pitch? How do wooden bats break? How is a ball hit so far in the major leagues? Throughout the course of this website, you will be able to identify the physics behind the baseball.
