Baseball has lots of physics. The focal point of the game is the baseball, which is constantly in motion. The pitcher throw the ball over the plate, the batter swing a bat (which is a simple machine called a lever) and when they connect, the batter runs the bases in a diamond formation with a base at each point, changing speed and velocity, while the fielders try to get the ball to tag the runner out.

The runners must travel 90 feet between bases, for a total of 360 feet, so an average speed of a base runner could be calculated by clocking the time it takes to run home.
