In The Science of Baseball, sportswriter and injury expert Will Carroll shows how understanding the science behind the Great American Pastime helps fans appreciate its nuances and that it enhances, not detracts from the greatest game ever invented.
Carroll, as well as several experts via interviews, covers topics like what makes the ball break, bounce and fly; how material science and physics work together to make the bat function; how hitters use physics, geometry and force to connect; sensors and cameras; injuries; and much more. Baseball aficionados and science geeks alike will better appreciate the game- no matter which teams are playing- after reading this comprehensive book.
