As promised, Jeff is here with some nerdy talk about why baseballs move the way they do. He’s joined by Professor Barton L. Smith, Professor of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering at Utah State University, who has done some really cool research on what he and his team call “seam-shifted wakes.” Jeff and Bart talk about what SSWs are, how they happen, and how that relates to the Dodgers.
