Inside (the) Baseball

Dr. Meredith Wills joins us to science the heck out of baseball construction, throwing humidors into the mix of what's up with the ball this year. Adley Rutschman's call up provides both Patti's best baseball day ever, and a plot twist. We say "as a knitter," "frizzy hair solution," and "you can shuffle Juan."

Dr. Meredith Wills joins us to talk about what’s up with the dead/mushy/squishy baseball. We learn about her years as the “destroyer of baseballs” to look for changes in construction, materials, anything that makes the ball behave differently from year to year or even game to game. Consider the humidor! Our give the ball to a kid mantra evolves into a more complicated algorithm ending in “send the ball to Meredith.”

Patti’s birthday wish was granted and Adley Rutschman finally got his call up – hijinks ensue. We say "as a knitter," "frizzy hair solution," and "you can shuffle Juan."
