Here are opinions and answers from FAQ Farmers: * Other than being able to count to three outs or nine innings or add up the score, not much. Baseball players have not typically been recognized as towering intellects, which is not to say that all baseball players are stupid, just that being terribly smart is not required to be a good player. Can mathematics be used to analyze baseball, that's another story. Understanding the physics behind the sport can be an extensive field of study. Something like http://www.exploratorium.edu/baseball/ or are some interesting starts. * You have to use multiplication and division to find a hitter's batting average. * You can calculate the amount of force needed to apply to the ball to make it go a certain, desired distance. You can also calculate the time it takes for a certain player to steal a base, and see if it can be done quicker than the catcher can get the ball to that base, etc. You can also calculate the height of the arch created by the ball's path of travel. You could determine the least amount of force needed to hit a ball out of the stadium (the least amount needed just to clear the fence). You can calculate the velocity of the players, the ball, etc. Use these PHYSICS concepts to get you started!

Each base path is 60 feet long; there are four base paths; what is the total distance around the bases one time? 60 X 4 == 240 feet. At the end of the game the score was 23 to 17. What was the average amount of runs in the game scored between the teams? (23 + 17) / 2 23+ 17 = 40. 40/2 = 20 runs.

Softball is related to geometry and physics. Softball uses a lot of angles and that is how it is related to geometry. For instance, when your playing the outfeild you have to know what angle is the shortest and quickest way to get to the ball. Softball also uses physics a lot by acceleration, velocity, and momentum.

1.You have to put your bat at a certain angle 2.You have to calculate the force of your bat to hit the ball as far as possible You get the idea!

Baseball players use math's in their job in varied ways. The most common areas would be when throwing and hitting the ball and also when running from one point to another.
