Behind The Seams

Read the article at the University Press: 

http://www.upressonline.com/2015/05/baseball-change-leads-to-more-home-runs/       

The Article is about a chance the National College Athletic Association (NCAA) made to their baseballs. By lowering the profile on the seam, the new balls were found to travel an average of 20 feet farther than the previous version. I speak with members of the FAU baseball team about their reception to the change, including head coach John McCormack. I also talked to Oakland Athletic's pitcher R.J. Alvarez (who previously pitched with the Owls' baseball team) about the differences between the MLB baseball and the one used in college.
