(KAIT) - America's pastime returns to baseball diamonds as the weather warms up.
A group of children in Florida is taking a closer look at the physics behind the sport. They aren't actually playing the game but definitely hitting it out of the park.
Students at Samoset Elementary participate in the Grand Slam Science Assembly.
They learn the physics behind the perfect swing, the aerodynamics of a baseball in flight, and measure the force required for an ideal pitch.
Avi Patel, a student at Southeast High School physics program, says this will have a lasting impression.
"They'll think of twisting their bodies the torque that they are generating, not necessarily know the terms yet but they will have all those processes in their mind, when introduced to the vocabulary and terminology later, it will click for them," Patel said.
Teachers say the kids learn the entire time, even though they may not realize it.
