Exploratorium provides this web site that explores the science of baseball through shockwave activities. The lab exercises and articles enhance different aspects of the subject. Some pages include video clips in real video format. The page also includes activities such as throwing a curveball, finding the 'sweet spot,' the bounce of the ball and the force of a bat handle. Additional links are included and provide information on Louisville Slugger, The National Baseball Hall of Fame, The Oakland Athletics and the San Francisco Giants. This is a nice resource for students interested in the physics of our Nation's past time.
