Do you know the science behind America's national pastime?

Lose yourself in over 650 interactive exhibits exploring perception, art, and science at our adults-only After Dark. Grab your friends and a drink and get immersed in mind-bending experiences and unique, thought-provoking programs.

Do you know the science behind America's national pastime? Why is a ball stitched, what's inside, and how does its makeup affect the physics of throwing the ball? How does a pitcher throw a curveball or a knuckleball, and how can a ball be either "dead" or "juiced"? Then delve into the bat: why Major League Baseball only use wooden bats and bans aluminum bats and how bat materials shape the game. And don't forget to budget time for batting practice!
