We are working some fun activities for upcoming events that involve sports, and wanted to share one with you. In this activity, kids can test their reaction times, to see if they are fast enough to play with the Bowie Baysox. One of their pitchers, Tanner Scott, can throw a 100mph fastball. How fast would the batter have to react to hit such a pitch? Download the Fastball Reaction Time Worksheet (PDF), and then point a browser to our Fastball Reaction Time Tester to try it. If your reaction times are consistently fast enough to get a hit, you might be Baysox material.
