(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

I'm currently working on doing an investigation on the relationship between kinematics and base running techniques in baseball. I'm trying to find out if "rounding the bases" is better than running straight to each base and turning, but I haven't found how I should preform the experiment and using what variables I should evaluate the technique. Can someone give me advice on it? How can I measure the velocities of the runner running bases?

2. Relevant equations

v=s/t

F=ma

p=mv

3. The attempt at a solution

I'm currently thinking of using:

- instantaneous velocity

- average velocity

- time taken to round bases

to evaluate the techniques, but I'm really lost... please help thank you!
