One of the fastest recorded pitches in major-league baseball, thrown by Billy Wagner in 2003, was clocked at 101.0 mi/h (Fig. P3.22). If a pitch were thrown horizontally with this velocity, how far would the ball fall vertically (in feet) by the time it reached home plate, 60.5 ft away?

2. Relevant equations

t impact = 2 * (vo/g) sin theta

3. The attempt at a solution

2 * (9.21404m (60.5ft)/9.8m/s2) sin(90) = 1.88042 m

1.88042 m * 3.281 ft = 6.16965 ft

what am i doing wrong?
