Keep Your Eye on the Ball: The Science and Folklore of Baseballby A. Terry Bahill, Robert G. Watts
Watts and Bahill-engineeers by vocation, baseball fans by avocation-have devised a series of experiments that put some of baseball's most cherished myths to the test. The result is a highly informative and entertaining guide that combines absorbing anecdotes and historical developments with research findings to provide the scientific slant on some classic baseball conundrums. You'll find the details on: the mechanics and physics of pitching and hitting; why the curveball curves; the flyball and the effect of backspin and topspin on its flight; and much more.
