Physics’ Bob Brown discussed the effect of cold weather on professional baseball

See what cold will do to a baseball at Guardians playoff games

Fox 8 News: Bob Brown, Distinguished University Professor and professor of physics, explained the science behind the idea that cold weather might help a team like the Cleveland Guardians during the Major League Baseball playoffs because they don’t rely on home runs (which could decrease in cold air) and instead rely on pitching: “​​“First of all, when you’ve got the heavier air, the ball, the spin on the curve balls and breaking balls, are gonna break more,” Brown said.
