Summary:This fun Java applet shows how altitude at different ball parks impact the distance a batted fly ball travels. Pick from a variety of cities from a variety of altitudes. To see the animation, set the speed of the ball leaving the bat and the angle, in degrees, of the ball leaving the bat. Pressing `hit it` will produce a crack of the bat and a dotted arched trajectory will appear showing the path of the ball.
