Science is everywhere, even in the world of sports. Advancements in new materials and technology during the war made its way into just about every facet of life. Baseball saw a new kind of bat made of lamenated wood and aluminum, creating a bat that won’t split, and be evenly balance. Not to mention air travel. It brought teams to distant cities annd allowed them to arrive fresh for the game. For track, automatic starting pistols use metal disks and an electronic circuit to help prevent false starts. Walkie talkies improve communications between the broadcasters with their man on the field.
What about the tough game of football? Light weight pads, and uniforms make it easier to run down the field. Bowling now has automatic pin setters, and the electronic eye to call fouls when a bowler steps over the line.
So many other sports will also enjoy the benefits of science so people will find them more enjoyable. The hope is increased safety and participation for everyone.
