What does Gary Sanchez Feel When Catching?

Yankees catcher,  Gary Sanchez, takes some abuse at his position. Not only from public criticism of his struggles blocking pass balls, but also the constant force of catching baseballs for 9 innings of play. In this blog I will examine the force that Sanchez has felt while catching Chapman.

First, Aroldis Chapman can throw 105 mph (47 m/s) fastballs at Sanchez.

p=mv

p= (.145 kg)(47m/s)

p= 6.8 kg*m/s

Say the time it takes for Sanchez to stop the ball is .1s

F= p/t

F = (6.8kg*m/s)/(.1s)

F= 6.8 N
