What’s in a pitch? A Biola statistician connects a change in the baseball to movement

In May, Major League Baseball commissioned a team of researchers to investigate the reasons for a spike in home runs that began in 2015. Their study concluded that the extra home runs could be attributed, in part, to a change in the aerodynamic properties of the baseball itself. The MLB-record 1.26 home runs per game in 2017 were helped by a renewed focus on launch angle, to be sure. But the baseballs helped too. Maybe you remember the fallout that ensued. MLB committed to more stringent oversig...

Analysis: In good Bush vibes, a hunger for retro simplicity?

By TED ANTHONY NEW YORK  — His nation celebrated George H.W. Bush this week as a statesman, a veteran, a loving and committed family man who was a totem of respect, humility and mildness.

Auston Matthews Could Be The Highest Paid Player In The NHL Next Season

from Michael Traikos of the National Post, This isn’t a debate on who is the best player in the world, but rather a reflection of what the salary cap was two years ago ($77 million US) when McDavid signed and what it’s projected to be ($83.5-million) when Matthews’ entry-level contract expires next year. That’s a $6.5-million increase. And you can bet it’s something that will reflect in what Matthews ends up getting. When McDavid signed an eight-year deal worth $100-million, the a...
