Description:

You may have tried to throw a curveball or a slider, or even a screwball, with an ordinary baseball and found it difficult to do. In this activity, learners use a Styrofoam ball to more easily model these pitches and observe the results. Pitching is an exciting aspect of the physics of baseball!
