Sport Science: The Home Run Derby

7/12/2010

During a regular season baseball game, MLB hitters routinely see pitches ranging from 90-100 mph, but in the Home Run derby they are being fed batting practice pitches of only 50-60 mph.

You can watch the 2010 State Farm Home Derby tonight at 8pm ET (5pm PT) on ESPN and ESPN3.com.
