I made this site to disseminate our findings on baseball aerodynamics. You may find that some of the theories/opinions discussed here change over time.  I am finding my way in the dark.  I’m happy if you join the discussion.  Some of my best stuff here is based on the suggestions of readers and I appreciate it.
