A ball thrown at 55mph will take ~.558 seconds to go 45 feet. A ball will take ~.558 seconds to travel 54 feet at a speed of 66mph. So, the 55mph pitch from 45 feet is simulating 66mph from 54 feet.

A fully loaded (80000lbs) tractor trailer travelling at 55mph will take about 300 feet (the length of a football field)to come to a stop. An empty unit will take nearly 900 feet to stop. This may sound strange but an empty unit has much less weight spread over 18 wheels therefore creates less friction between the tires and road and is prone to skidding making the stopping distance much longer.

When traveling at 35 mph it will take you 210 feet to come to a complete stop.
