My project is about how temperature and air pressure affect the distance a football can be thrown. When the air is warmer the molecules move faster and spread apart, therefore making the air pressure lower and making the ball lighter. But when the air is cooler the molecules move slower and move closer together, making the air pressure higher making the ball
In recent discussions of the designated hitter, a controversial issue has been whether the National League of Major League should adopt the designated hitter or that the National League should keep the rule how it is and have the pitchers bat. On the one hand, some argue that the National League should keep the rule of having the pitcher bat in the lineup. From this perspective, we can argue that teams will have to make strategic moves late in the game when dealing with the pitcher’s spot in the batting order. On the other hand, however, others argue that the designated hitter role should be adopted by the National League. The opinion of one of this view’s main supporters is that having the designated hitter will expand some teams offenses.
As defined by the MLB, this critical tool, “measures the speed of the baseball as it comes off the bat, immediately after a batter makes contact”(“What Is a Exit Velocity?” ). The goal of any hitter is to obtain the highest exit velocity they are physically capable of. The harder a batter can hit the ball, the faster the ball will travel and the less time the opposing players have to respond. Strong exit velocity coupled with the right launch angle makes for one mean hitting machine. But how does all of this information relate to softball? A man known as ‘Coach Lisle’ wanted to know just that, and recorded groundwork data based on some of the players he worked with that had the highest percentages of home runs. What he discovered was that, with softball players, “most of them have a max exit velocity of 76-82 mph and an average exit velocity of 64+”(Lisle. “Launch Angles in Baseball and Softball.”). It should be noted that not all players have this sort of exit velocity power, and that weather conditions can also play a huge role in the success of home run hits. The information pertaining to launch angle in terms of baseball players provided by the MLB still rings true for softball players as the core concept is still the same. Where the two sports differ is in terms of exit velocity. While a baseball player needs a 98 mph exit velocity in order to knock a ball out of
Major League baseball teams and some college leagues use wood bats. College level teams use wood bats when their league is only for wood bats. For example, the Lakeshore Chinooks are in a wood bat league. Some other countries that baseball is popular in are Cuba and Taiwan. Every wood bat is different. They are made with different sizes and weights. The bats can also be made out of different types of wood. Although, most baseball players use maple or ash wood for their bats nowadays. About sixteen-thousand five-hundred bats are used per season. There are three main things that need to be done to make a baseball bat.
In order for a player to earn a base hit he must hit the ball in such a way where he cannot be thrown out by a fielder or a way where no fielder can catch it. Many physicists consider hitting a baseball traveling ninety-two miles per hour near impossible, which is why not many people can hit at professional or collegiate levels in the sport of baseball. Hitting is the hardest athletic feat in all of sports, for the highest batting average in the 2017 season was .346, which equates to a 34.6 percent success rate by that particular hitter. In any other sport a less than 50 percent success rate denotes to a failing rate. Even the player with the highest batting average in the modern era only hit .409. Moreover, in other sports keystone positions, like quarterback or point guard, can push some responsibility onto other players. For example, a quarterback could make a god awful throw, but the receiver dives and makes an
Chucking balls down a lane at pins sounds like fun right? Well it is it's called bowling. It has been a fun game played by many generations of people. Bowling had a legacy of fun, popularity and has a lot of things to know about it, but it is starting to lose its value.

Baseball is one of the hardest sports to play in the world. Basketball, Volleyball, and Soccer are difficult sports to play as well. However, softball is considered by many to be easier than baseball. Softball has statistically been proven to be more difficult than baseball.
First, baseball is a game of failure. To be considered a good hitter you usually have a batting average of three hundred. What this means is
Brother Matthias was unsure of letting Babe go, because babe was only nineteen years old; he was still a minor (Match 19). He officially left school February 27 for baseball. However, Babe never forgot St. Mary’s, and to thank Brother Matthias, Babe bought him a Cadillac every year (Macht 19). Because of his strength, he was the best lefthanded pitcher at that time, and his team won eighty-seven games in 1915 and 1919. His team also won three world series games. The Babe set a record for pitching 2,923 shutout innings (“Babe”). In 1920, he set a record of hitting fifty-four home runs; he set a new record of fifty-nine home runs, in 1921. Because of those home run records, he became the most feared batter. Babe used a 52 ounce bat, but today baseball players use bats that are only about 32-34 ounces (Match 33). Sadly, in 1925, Helen Ruth, Babe’s wife, died in a fire. However, Babe found love again and married Claire Hodgson also in 1925, and with Claire he adopted Julia and Dorothy(“Babe”). Eventually, he was traded to the Yankees.and in 1926. He started a dynasty on the Yankees, and helped them win seven pennants, and four World Series. He also made a record of a total of 714 home runs. On the Yankees, he was a full time outfielder, and was the greatest hitter who ever played. The Yankee Stadium was then named “The House That Ruth Built” (“Babe”). Babe Ruth became cruel again. He had verbal offensive
“Baseball is soo easy. People play it because other sports are too hard for them.” one kid said.
Baseball is considered by many to be America’s favorite pastime. Softball in many aspects is similar to baseball but in reality it is harder to play. This can be shown in all aspects of the game from hitting to pitching to fielding to catching.
As we all know soccer and tennis are the sports that are widely known throughout the entire world, but baseball and basketball our the major sports of our country and are widely recognized throughout the U.S. These two sports are a symbol to our country. Due to their high popularity, they have spread around the world and now are known as two of the most well known sports. Baseball and Basketball are not only different from each other but also quite similar. For example, baseball may be played on a diamond, while basketball is played on a court. But don’t they both wear uniforms?

The film shows how social media (mainly twitter) helps spread the information of the upcoming event around the globe making the upcoming event a world wide sensation. Usually nowadays we just think of how
When people think about sports and athletics, the subject of physics doesn’t always comes to their mind. But the influence of physics is found in every aspect of the sport. Physics is simple as a bouncing of a ball or complex as a roller coaster. Each single movement in a sport contains a great deal of physics. Every sport consumes multiple of physics principles. There can’t be any sport played without physics. Physics has a vital role in the field of sports.
