#### Storyboard Text

• 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.
