Golly, Mr. Science

October 23, 2012

Love to see the disciplines getting together, don’t you. Like Dr. Robert Adair’s classic TThe Physics of Baseball (3rd Edition) and Why a Curveball Curves: The Incredible Science of Sports (Popular Mechanics), et al.

So that’s why I love stuff like this from Alan Nathan’s The Physics of Baseball website. Lots of great links.

A search of the phrase “the physics of baseball” on Youtube yields this.

I received a copy of some MLB-promoted game for the Wii a year or so back, but never got the hang of the thing. Can anyone recommend a good “virtual rality”-type baseball game?
