Hit Modeler Simulator program: With this software, you can study how far a baseball will travel after it is hit by a bat by changing the values of the factors that affect the aerodynamic forces on the ball. These are the same forces that generate the drag of an aircraft wing. Curveball Simulator program: With this software you can study how a big league pitcher throws a curveball by changing the values of the factors that affect the aerodynamic forces on the ball. Values include the pitch speed, wind and weather conditions. These are the same forces that generate the lift of an aircraft wing.
