h=height in m, of a batted baseball as a function of time t seconds since ball was hit(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

h=-4.5t^2+13.5t+5.875

can someone tell me what is the physical significance of the 5.875 and prove it? Im thinking maybe this is the height at which the ball was hit but if this is true then how will I prove it ? Please help all these quadratic questions are hurting my head :rofl:
