Not only is the tone of this scientific article that of a research tone, but also that of a scientific nature. The two authors were not only trying to find out which baseball bat would be ideal for the best batting average, but they also “…applied the principles of physics and physiology” (Bahill 83). The scientific aspect of this article helps to give the authors the credibility to prove their thesis. Not only did these two authors perform experiments with different types of professional baseball bats, but they also looked at
