Tours of the Baseball Research Center can be scheduled for the public where the general physics of baseball and engineering applications are explained and demonstrated.
Groups or individuals interested in scheduling a tour should contact Patrick Drane, Assistant Director. Tours are provided on a case-by-case basis during normal business operating hours. Teachers should include in their request the size of the class group and how the tour would connect with their class lessons.
