Breaking: Baseballs travel further when it’s hot outside, could lead to more home runs for the Philadelphia Phillies
We have some ground breaking information for you today regarding warm weather and it’s impact on how far baseballs travel when the temperature outside finally gets hot during the summer months.
Philadelphia’s own 6ABC posted a weird “story” on their website to tell everyone that “Climate Change could lead to more home runs” based off a study done by students at Dartmouth University.
Obviously, I’m being a smart ass when saying this is “ground breaking” information or really any type of breaking news.
Obviously, when the weather heats up during the summer, more home runs are hit.
That’s what Charlie Manuel likes to call “Hittin Season”.
The fact that 6ABC decided to write the following article that’s literally just the image below, is pretty bizarre.
6ABC: Climate Change could lead to more Phillies home runs
It’s almost like they just wanted to say that the average temperature during the summer increased by two degrees so they could drop the always “fun” topic of climate change into the article.
The information however, is nothing new.
Also, shoutout to whatever Dartmouth University students got to wasted time watching 1,000 baseball games just to create some bullshit study proving the obvious.
Sounds like the ultimate college fleece.
On the other hand, if I ever have a kid that was to prove home runs happen more often in hot weather by spending thousands of dollars on a college course, then I’ll almost certainly tell him or her “no”.
As usual, the parents hold some of the blame here as well.
The Phillies will open up a series with the Miami Marlins at Citizens Bank Park tonight. Here’s the weather report, with temperatures in the Philly area hitting the 80’s in the middle of the week. We’ll keep you posted if Climate Change is the reason to credit any home runs hit this week.
