In baseball sliding into a bag is actually harder then it looks. The amount of friction can determine if you are safe or out. You have to apply a certain amount of newtons when sliding and keep a constant momentum when going towards the base. This past week when we played east ridge, in the bottom of the 7th I stole 2nd base and had to slide in. the exhilaration going through my body was sensational and when I was safe I was in scoring position to win the game, and we ended it with a walk off and I scored.
