Exhibit islands focus on the physics of various parts of the game—here throwing mechanics and ball aerodynamics, as well as historical information on famous Negro players, in this case Satchel Paige.

Bat Marimba. Always a hit when we do mobile exhibitions on the Science of Baseball, the Bat Marimba shows the visitor that the "Sweet Spot" of a bat is the best place to hit the ball ("node" or place of least vibration, but the worst place to make music. Bats of various sizes shows that there's always a sweet spot on any length bat.

I produced a series of give-away baseball cards featuring Giants players as scientists. The back of the card provided a take home activity for further investigation.

Baseball Dissection. By taking various kinds of bales apart, visitors learn about "coefficient of restitution" or the bounciness of balls, and that Major League baseballs are composed mostly of yarn and string.

Bay Area Science Festival at AT&T Park. By wearing goggles that avert your line of sight by fifteen degrees, throwers miss the target until they employ feedback to correct their aim. When the glasses are removed, they have to learn all over again to hit the target.
