AZ Diamondbacks host camp for kids in Tucson

By Taylor Higgins. CREATED Nov 11, 2013

TUCSON (KGUN9-TV) - What would you do with a giant water balloon launcher -- baseballs and a protractor?

This is the first year that the Arizona Diamondbacks held it's Science of Baseball camp for underprividged kids in Tucson.

Staff taught about 50 kids how to measure Paul Goldschmidt's batting average and the bio-mechanics of shoulder injuries.

"You need to figure out how far your arm can go back because you need to know how far you can throw it," said Albert Figueroa.

Math is also mixed in -- kids learned hands-on about the curve and distance of ball flight.
