A batter trying to hit a home run, a striker trying to score a goal, a quarterback trying to throw a touchdown pass - what do these people have in common? They all depend on science to help them succeed. The laws of science are at work every time hitters step to the plate or quarterbacks step back to throw. In Sports Science, readers learn how scientific principles come into play in their favorite sports.
