Description:

This website resource is devoted to Alan Nathan's research related to the physics of baseball. In his day job, Alan Nathan is an experimental nuclear/particle physicist, where he investigates high-speed collisions between subatomic particles. Nights and weekends, he studies the physics of baseball—high-speed collisions between cowhide and ash.

Alan Nathan's particular research interests are two-fold: the physics of the baseball-bat collision and the flight of the baseball. He has done quite a bit of independent research in both areas. Alan is also heavily involved with several areas of practical interest to the game. One is characterizing, measuring, and regulating the performance of non-wood bats, an area for which he has served on committees advising the NCAA and USA Baseball. Another is exploiting new technologies for tracking the baseball, such as PITCHf/x, HITf/x, and TrackMan, for novel uses in baseball analytics, often in collaboration with his talented colleagues from Complete Game Consulting.
