You'll need to be a real baseball fan to avoid striking out at this online game that compares presidents and baseball players.

Different, but worth a visit. This site require Flash. You can get it from the TeachersFirst Toolbox page.

This website provides a detailed activity that focuses on the "sweet spot." Batters know from experience that this is the special spot found on the bat, where the shock of the impact felt by the hands, is reduced so much that the batter is almost unaware of the contact with the ball. Find out more about the "sweet spot" at this Australian site. Several video clips are included. The site requires QuickTime. You can get it from the TeachersFirst Toolbox page.

The Science of Baseball is the Exploratorium's collection of activities and descriptions involving physics, biomechanics, and baseball. This website takes a topic that students love (baseball) and puts it into scientific terms to enhance the educational experience. What makes a curve ball curve, anyway? How quickly does a batter have to react to hit a ball thrown at 95 miles per hour? There's lots of real-world physics at this site, and the presentation is engaging as well as instructive. Many of the interactive challenges require Flash. You can get it from the TeachersFirst Toolbox page.

tag(s): baseball (36), forces (45)

In the Classroom

Treat your students to this content-rich website using your interactive whiteboard or projection screen. Take your class outside to try their hands at some of the experiments. Or have cooperative learning groups explore different sections of this multi-faceted website. What a fantastic way to excite your students about learning science.
