Sport Science: Boston Cannons' Paul Rabil

Both fast and accurate a lacrosse ball can reach speeds up to 100 MPH. When the Boston Cannons' Paul Rabil throws, it hits 111. Sport Science takes a look at the science behind a lacrosse shot.

Paul Rabil of Major League Lacrosse's Boston Cannons lives up to his team's nickname. As in, he's got a cannon for a shot, sending the ball toward net at up to 111 miles per hour (a world record).
