Running the Bases
(2009-10-13)
(wfcr) - The Red Sox may be out, but the playoffs continue and fans can get quite intense about the finer points of the game. Mathematicians can get that way, too. Some researchers at Williams College have been trying to figure out the most efficient way to run the bases. Professor Stewart Johnson told WFCR's Bob Paquette the best way is to head well outside the base path right from the crack of the bat and not to take the route ballplayers usually take, the route Johnson calls "the banana path." © Copyright 2021, wfcr
