    Hi Megan. I just wanted to say that the show is incredible and my wife and I really enjoy watching it. So much so that I wanted to ask you if there were any DVD's of the show available for purchase. Please let me know, thank you!

    Hi I don't know if this show is still running or not but I'd like to discuss the episode about softball vs baseball pitching. I don't think it was quite complete. Although there might be less time to react to a softball pitch, you have to consider every hitter has a hitting zone, the area in which the bat and ball are on the same plane. Just because the softball reaches the hitting zone faster, it still moves through it at a slower rate. I have a blog going if you would like to read it at http://pzoneacademy.blogspot.com/, it goes in reverse chronological order. It's not complete but it's a start to the science of hitting. You also have to consider pitch movement. The baseball has to travel a longer distance, therefore it has more time to move because of its spin. You also have to consider the bats. Wooden bats are much heavier and have a smaller sweet spot, therefore less room for error for hitting.

    Hi Megan,



    I am a PDHPE teacher with elective and senior classes. I only noticed the show a couple of weeks ago and find it fascinating especially considering my teaching area. It is a valuable knowledge based resource for me even with only the few episodes I have viewed. I was wondering


    1. will the 1st series be replayed


    2. when does series 2 commence


    3. Can you buy the series and if so where/how and cost please


    Paul (PDHPE Teacher
