Review "Engagingly written" -- Sacramento Bee

"New get your calculators and slide rules handy. Baseball isn't brain surgery, it's physics..." -- BookPage

"The authors explore the fascinating gaps between physics and perception that make hitting a baseball such an interesting challenge. Their book provides the layman with entertaining explanations of some of baseball's most cherished assumptions-the curvatures of pitched balls, the behavior of batters and their bats, the overall improvement of players through the years. It can make an old ballplayer slap his forehead and say, 'So that's what was going on!'" -- David Baldwin, Ph.D., Enterprise Data Solutions --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

About the Author Robert G. Watts teaches in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at Tulane University. Having more than a mere theoretical interest in the game, he pitched as a young man for the semiprofessional Bayou Latanache Baseball Club--where he gained first-hand knowledge of spitballs, fly balls, and a healthy familiarity with insider-baseball lore.

A. Terry Bahill has been Professor of Systems Engineering at the University of Arizona in Tucson since 1984. He has been investigating the brain's motor functions since 1971. Actively pursuing experiments in the science of baseball for many years, he has developed a measuring device that strengthens a player's ability to follow the pitch, as well as the Bat Chooser, a system that computes the Ideal Bat Weight for individual hitters.
