BW Physics Prof Calculates Home Run Physics for Indians

April 9, 2014

For the Cleveland Indians 20th home opener at Progressive Field, Baldwin Wallace physics professor Ed Meyer ran the numbers on home run hitting for a WKYC-TV 3 pregame special.

In the report on the science of slugging, Dr. Meyer recounted how he helped the Indians locate the stadium's home run porch, calculating the distance to keep long ball production steady.

Meyer also noted that the number he (and all Tribe fans) are most interested in adding up this season is "wins!"
