World Series



Watching the 2014 World Series, I saw a Royals player at-bat swing and hit the baseball into the outfielder where, off the ground, a Giants player was able to stop the ball and return to the infield to get the Royals player out. Although how could he have stopped the ball if he was standing still and it was travelling so fast. I was able to conclude that because the baseball player picked up the grounder coming in at a great speed, he was able to stop the ball primarily because for a moment he was moving his arm and glove just as fast to be able to stop the ball's motion. Balancing the force put behind the ball from the bat, along with the force of the outfielder's glove going in the opposite direction against the ball, the ball no longer was moving.
