Tchaikovsky Sounds Funny: Baseball Physics Test

Is this where I put in key words such as sex, lesbians, vampires, Christopher Lloyd and others things to which this blog do not pertain, but by putting them here, I may get hits from all the Christoper Lloyd lesbian vampire fans (and you know who you are)? This is the primarily humorous and occasionally rambling writings of Leon Tchaikovsky, humor writer. Enjoy.

Baseball Physics Test

A baseball game is tied in the bottom of the 9th inning. A hit to the outfield is relayed to the shortstop who throws to home where a base runner is sliding in hopes of scoring the winning run. The pitcher is backing up the catcher, when suddenly someone yells out “oh, no a baby has fallen.” The pitcher looks up and sees that a baby has fallen from the bleachers onto the netting and is sliding towards the pitcher. The pitcher catches the baby.

Considering the height and rate of descent from the bleachers to the netting followed by calculating the speed of which the baby slid down the netting followed by the height and speed of the fall into the pitcher’s arms, the most critical piece of information one needs to know in calculating the result of this event is the following: Was the runner safe at home?

What was the speed and accuracy of the throw to the catcher, and did the catcher catch the ball and was he able to make the tag in time? There are the critical Physics datum needed.
