Complete the table to summarize what you know about each player's throw: ( 2 points : 1 point for each row of the chart) Player Statement Tre he threw the ball from the center of the pitcher’s mound to the 3 rd base Hector hector threw the ball from the grass line to second base

Analyze the Conjecture: : 2. Looking at the diagram, who do you think threw the ball farther? ( 1 point ) Hector Graph the Coordinates: Shift the baseball diamond so that home plate becomes the origin, (0, 0). 3. Find the coordinates for the three bases and graph them below: ( 3 points : 1 point for each base)
a) Home plate: (0, 0) b) First base: (90, 0 ) c) Second base: ( 90 , 90 )
