Physicists explain a knuckleball hop and dip as collision between the air and a baseball’s stitches. They attribute the peculiar flight pattern to a combination of low speed and minimal spin.

The pitch can veer in almost any direction – even the best pitchers generally can’t predict the break of a ball; most batters generally can’t hit one.

Find out more about how this ball is thrown, its delivery and timing, a typical a trajectory.

The infographic is a real gem for all baseball fans explaining the knuckleball in every respect. Moreover, it could be a useful tool in the more advanced physics classes to study the aerodynamics of this sport curiosity.
