After last year’s Science and Weather Day at Coors Field, the Colorado Rockies outfielders asked me to give them more of a challenge for a warm-up before the game. Last year, pitcher Jeff Francis and I launched potatoes with tricked out potato launchers. We shot the potatoes into the outfield.
For Science and Weather Day 2010, we will launch limes with our canons. The potato canons have an accelerant inside to help fire the limes into the outfield. Here’s hoping the limes will give the outfielders the challenge they need.
