"Adding cork inside of baseball bats is thought to give the hitter an unfair advantage. However, some researchers believe the advantage is psychological and not physical. I measured average speeds with 3 bats, regular, corked, made to look like it has cork in it but really does not. There was no real advantage in the corked vs regular bats."

One thought on “Bats and Balls

  1. Good number of trials. Nice conclusion. Nice to see that you have thought about what to do in a future project.
