For those of use who want to understand everything we can about baseball there is another outlet for us. The man leading the charge is Dr. Alan Nathan. He is the Professor Emeritus of Physics at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. His research is regarding the physics of baseball.


Dr. Nathan’s research can be found here. Videos of his research are available here. He appeared on the ESPN podcast Behind the Dish with Keith Law (start a little before 9:00) discussing his research and answering physics questions related to baseball. Dr. Nathan is doing what we all wish we could do. Spending our entire day learning, watching, and trying to understand baseball.
