Physics in Baseball: do performance enhancing drugs increase home runs?

That's the title of a program from my Radical Baseball series on Blog Talk Radio.  Click to go to the webpage that provides the audio:

Physics in Baseball: do performance enhancing drugs increase home runs?

University of Illinois physics professor Alan M. Nathan swings at that and more: PitchFX, wood v. aluminium bats, ...

Also, click Professor Nathan's name to go to his website for more of his research on the physics of baseball.

My interview with Professor Nathan was not meant to be exhaustive but it contains information that should be of interest to those concerned about the subject of my previous post on new Hall of Fame candidates, especially Barry Bonds.

Whatever Bonds was taking his achievement of hitting 73 home runs in 476 at bats while accepting 177 walks is amazing and deserves more than mere dismissal and derision.
