  • Seeking hi-speed video of bat hitting ball

    Hi Folks -

    If anyone knows of a video that shows the ball deforming when hit by a bat, I'd very much appreciate a pointer.

    I seem to be having trouble finding such a video by googling.

    Thanks.

    Apparently it compresses down to about half its size upon impact. That's a lot of energy being transferred. I'll look for a video, but will a plain picture do?

      Sultan, I'd enjoy seeing a still photo.

      Thanks!

              Very nice...shows the trampoline effect. Is that just a stationary bat though? Seems the ball should be deforming more.

                it's probably a stationary bat and a pitched ball.. and the ball would deform more if the bat were also moving.

                  For sure.

                  Here's another shot from this website (http://www.kettering.edu/~drussell/bats.html) with a faster pitched ball. And some dude hitting a softball.

                    ball-bat collision

                    Attached are a couple of pictures I have in my collection, both from local photographers. The baseball picture shows the ball in contact with the bat. The softball picture shows the bat bending. Both pretty nifty.
