Today we are going to be talking about how the Pythagorean Theorem is seen in baseball!
There are many different ways it is seen. We are going to be talking about when the pitcher is throwing the ball to the catcher
You can see how the pitcher is throwing the ball to the catcher here is another way to depict it.
So, this picture is showing how a pitchers height and the distance he is throwing at affects how far he actually is throwing.
So, lets say the distance from the mound to home plate is 56 ft. and the pitcher is 6 foot 1. using the Pythagorean Theorem we can identify how far the pitcher is throwing.
Using the formula a2+b2=c2 we can plug in the numbers so the problem would be 56 squared + 6.1 squared = c2. Now you find the answer.
