SAS Bowl XXII, The SAS Batting Lab -- Game Recap

SAS Bowl XXII, The SAS Batting Lab was a home run! A few baseball-related questions were sprinkled in, but the focus was on the Batting Lab, the technology behind it, and getting kids excited about STEM. You can catch the entire replay in the video below.

 

 

Game Box Score

  • The SAS Batting Lab has eight cameras, a microphone, a 32 dimensional model, and a 752 sensor pad for data gathering.
  • Your game host, @joeFurbee is a baseball nut and Cincinnati Reds fan
  • We learned our own @ShelleySessoms was an extra in the movie "Bull Durham".
  • To the utter delight of @MichelleHomes , we included a Roman numeral question

To evidence we didn't overload questions on the American pastime, we had two winners from Europe and one from Canada (although technically, baseball is played in Canada, see Toronto Blue Jays and Joey Votto).

 

Congratulations to the winners

Oh indeed it was utter delight to see a Roman numeral question towards the end. I was squealing with glee!!! Thanks @joeFurbee 

 

FYI, I'll be publishing tomorrow a Metacoda blog post about SAS Explore and SAS Bowl XXIII that mentions the hope for another Roman numeral question 😉 🤞

Hi @joeFurbee,

my swag arrived today. It fits perfectly and of cause I will wear it proudly!

Thanks to you and the whole team. Transcontinental cooperations worked perfectly.

A small footnote after circling the earth: a small label inside says, that the production company sits about 50 miles away from my home in Germany.

Best

Markus

@joeFurbee ... my swag arrived this afternoon ... and YES, baseball is played in Canada ... sometimes quite well ... although the Blue Jays did come up a couple of runs short this evening.  (And No ... I have not visited the very newly opened Jollibee restaurant that I recently discovered about a mile from my home.)

 

THANK YOU, Bruce.

Congrats again @brucdens on getting first place! You'll have to let us ALL know what the Jollibee restaurant is like.

We wait in anticipation for your review! 😉
