@Boran Theki I remember one year my team was gifted a small tub of that stuff in Little League back in the early to mid 90s. We didn't really get it, but I actually liked how it slightly changed the feel of the ball. Mostly we were just excited our games felt more "authentic" with it. haha. Total placebo I'm sure. 9 year olds wouldn't really get any meaningful differences with it.

no other institution reminds me more of how Ancient Rome's government officials, clergy and rituals functioned. There were a number that were so old and permuted that they honestly didn't remember why they did it, but some ancient offhand account said all the ghosts of their sacred dead rose and terrorized the city one year they didn't so they just kept doing a massive festival every year. Like why did they start replacing balls so often in baseball? Cause it negatively affected the sport as a whole? No? Sportsmanship? No? Oh it got so hard to see it killed someone - and their solution was to just replace them often rather than... all of the other contributing factors to that danger.

@Baseball Doesn't Exist hey bud.. ray chapmans wikipedia references an article by espn that says the pitcher, carl mays was the one to field the ball and throw it to first base after thinking chapman hit the ball. either the wikipedia is wrong or the third baseman wasnt the one to field the ball. you should correct the wikipedia article if youre certain it wasnt the pitcher.

The thing that gets me is just how "balanced" baseball is. The length of basepaths, the distance to the plate, and distance to the fence - all of it so balanced that changing the thread can alter the game drastically. Which is just amazing.

@TheInfectous or saying it the other way - "the original ball is so badly designed for aerodynamics that manufacturing changes create huge aerodynamic differences"
TheInfectous
TheInfectous 10 күн бұрын
well wording it that way is a bit misleading, the change that matters isn't the thread, which itself is a small change, it's the change in the aerodynamics which was a large change. a more accurate sentence would be, "all of it so balanced so well that a massive change in aerodynamics of the ball can alter the game drastically" which uh, would be self-evident. The sentiment you're looking for is "the thing that gets me is just how precise aerodynamics is. The smallest variation in size, shape, weight and material can have massive changes in how objects fly through the air."

A while back when the laces were being talked about...it made sense that them protruding farther made it easier for the pitcher to grasp and control while also decreasing the distance it would fly due to increased drag. When they made the laces shorter the pitchers lost some control which made it easier to hit them...and the balls flew farther just from the decreased drag of the less prominent laces. Then throw in changes to the core rebound and lots of things can make the balls do what they want. As long as both teams have to use the same balls....I'd call it a fair contest, but if one team got one ball while the other a different one....that wouldn't be right.

I honestly think any time you get into a professional-level sport, you're going to see very minor gear differences that amateurs would never notice having a huge effect on total performance. This is probably most prominent in motorsports, which is why any major motorsport has a rulebook about as long as three Bibles, but I have no doubt a guy who does nothing in his professional life but throw baseballs will notice an immense difference in performance from a 9% increase in lace thickness or the exact grade of cowhide used in the cover.

@Sneersh I mean, ironically players caused the issues. The players being babies and demanding new balls or multiple balls per pitch resulting in supply chain shortages which then resulted in changes to the process and multiple different kinds of balls being used per match. As long as only one type of ball was used per game then it is petty, the other team has to play with the same type which would've been the case had players not produced so much waste needlessly. Inconsistency is a part of physical sports at least until the far future when we can make entire stadiums out of synthetic materials and 3D print baseballs, if they wanted consistency they should've played video games.

I'm thinking about motorsports now. The amount of rules that govern how a racecar is built are generally downright staggering. You have to have x amount of horsepower, y amount of cylinders, z amount of curb weight, a×b dimensions, c° spoiler, d amount of ride height, and so on. And it makes so much sense when you consider that motorsports are usually more about the drivers' ability to drive their vehicles within a certain performance envelope than about their crews' budget and ability to build and tune better vehicles.

As a baseball fan for his entire life this is so weird, I was at Fenway the other week for mothers day and in the 9th inning down a run J.D Martinez barreled one to left and me and my friend (both baseball players who hit bp regularly and watch teamates crush balls) thought this ball was leaving the ball park, thing died and hit the top of the monster. I've seen at least 20-30 games at fenway in my life and seen more homeruns live than I can count so I don't normally get excited for any contact unless I know its crushed and it just feels like the ball is even more dead this year

Stop blaming foul ball and fan because the professional players on the field had a complete epic choke. Your that classic dude that always blames everyone else for your mistakes and can never take responsibility for yourself, always wanting to blame anyone and everyone else but yourself. If you think Bartman is what lost the Cubs that game your delusional. Not to mention they still even had a chance to win the next game after that to still win the series. All the errors the PLAYERS made to lose that game, all the runs they gave up and you blame it all on a fan trying to catch a ball that was literally in the stands. Baaaaahahahaha

Awesome video. I think there are some other variables to consider as well, such as differences in how the batters are swinging, environmental conditions, differences in pitching, differences in the bats perhaps? I think the sport is more fun to watch when there's more action on the bases, regardless of how long the game goes. That's just my opinion though.

Great video, especially on the practical elements of controlling ball characteristics. The typical person accusing the league of manipulating the ball for some in-game consequence generally doesn't realize how insane that would be. Even if the balls were all exactly the same, there is no way to accurately predict how drag will act on the ball throughout the course of a season. Drag is the most important element affecting the ball's trajectory, but the coefficient of drag and cross-sectional area of the ball (i.e. the shape and make of the ball) get way too much attention in the live-ball era. Those elements are at their most significant in pitching because the other factors in drag from the mound to home are more consistent. Once the ball is hit in the air, velocity, altitude, weather, and temperature are so dynamic that minor variance in make has mathematically chaotic predictability. A ball hit exactly the same way with exactly the same make can vary in trajectory just from the variance of the other factors (most noticeably in Denver) enough to account for a 50 ft discrepancy. The amount of variance increases with time relative to initial observation, so watching the ball travel through the air makes it seem more predictable than it is. Then consider how often variance in final location actually affects game outcomes. Because HRs are defined by a threshold instead of a gradient of fielder ability, we notice that variance a lot more. Additionally, we tend to assume randomness doesn't exhibit apparent patterns (they aren't actually linear patterns, but they look like them), so we embrace superstition as an explanation of simply random behavior.

Depending on how much of this is accurate, it basically calls into question everything legitimate about the sport. There are way too many opportunities for teams, players, umps, owners or even the league itself to bring in a few different balls to be used at certain times. Then the evidence conveniently disappears into the crowds.

I think the fascination with the HR is a large part of the problem. I read and hear all about launch angles and exit velocity all the time. The whole "chick's dig the long-ball" schtick translated into more money. I'll admit that pitchers routinely reaching 95-98 MPH has had an effect but strike outs are up because guys are swinging for the fences a lot more now than in the past. The station-to-station game is largely a thing of a bygone era. When I was a coach, I saw HR's as rally killers. It cleared the bases and gave the defense a chance to reset. I recall numerous instances where we would go out 1-2-3 after a knock. I liked being aggressive and gave my guys a green light to take a base if they thought they could get it. I applied the Bo Schembechler rule that said one of three things happens when you throw the ball and two of them are bad. Until a guy showed us he could throw us out we ran on him. Obviously we weren't playing at the pro-level but baseball is baseball. Aggressive base running can still create excitement. These 2-1, 3-2, 4-2 snooze-fests where a combination of pitchers strikes out 10 or more opposing players don't exactly keep me on the edge of my seat. In the old days a good old fashioned pitching duel was fun to watch but now that guys are on pitch counts complete game mano-a-mano competitions are pretty much a thing of the past. I'm not trying to come off like a grumpy old guy but I'd like to see guys be a bit more concerned about becoming well-rounded hitters and a bit less about going yard. It might help them negate the shift even though that is going away soon enough. As for pitchers like JV complaining, you'll excuse me if I take what he has to say with a grain of salt, given his track record for using foreign substances on the ball to gain an edge. I like JV, he played for my home team for many years, but him and his super model wife bitch too much on social media. But that's me.

As an F1 fan baseball is where I come when the drama of my main sport gets too passe. Stuff like porpoising, Monaco being the bratty traditionalist of the calendar, and the whole situation at the beginning of the season where the Haas team had a week to resolve the fact that it was being sponsored by a heavily sanctioned war criminal all fades away in comparison to a sport where the NASCAR motto of "If you ain't cheatin' you ain't winnin'" is basically official league policy. At this point AEW is less likely to be faked than MLB.

they could deliver a kinetic shock to the ball and measure the reaction, similar to noise canceling devices or many other devices that measure differences in kinetic waves. this would tell how each ball is in terms of its characteristics when hit, even if it is something small. the technology is cheap enough for this to be done to each ball to try and get more consistency.

@CʀᴀғᴛAᴇʀᴏ it is true that it would be altered, but a strong bass thump shouldn't affect the helmet's durability by any noticeable amount, and if it does the test would reveal that (and at that point i would rather have had the test rather than get an overly fragile helmet). in any case consistency is the goal for the balls and not ensuring a specific durability, so if they all end up with the same characteristics from the test then you know they all perform the same.

Problem is, once you deliver that shock, you've altered the ball. I wouldn't want to buy a helmet that has previously been shock tested.

Japan's NPB has no problem with their balls. EVERY Japanese pitcher that's pitched in the MLB has complained about the ball slipping out and causing injury. That's one of the main reasons Japanese pitcher struggle in their first couple of seasons. I've heard complaints about the mound hardness not being consistent either.

Well of course they have issues. They're going from one league to another and they both have totally different standards and rules. IIRC the strikezone isn't even the same between the two. Japan's NPB is also only 12 teams to MLB's 30. A NPB team has 125 games in the regular season vs MLB's 165. That puts NPB at 750 regular season games (125x12/2) vs MLB 2430 regular season games (165x30/2). Add into the fact that Japan is about the size of California. NPB needs fewer balls for fewer games and has to transport those balls shorter distances compared to MLB. It's no wonder NPB has an easier time with material consistency.

When the MLB does this for reasons that only they know and by means that only they control, it is little wonder that players whose financial lives are to a great part based on this manipulation by their 'boss', do what they can to engage in some kind of counteractive subterfuge of their own with this ball.
