Sports Challenge

Test yourself, your friends, and your relatives as you pitch, climb, jump, run, and balance in these larger-than-life experiences. Then learn some techniques for improving your performance through better nutrition, safer warm-up exercises, and a better understanding of the physics involved.

NEW! Batter Up! – Swing a bat through a pair of laser beams to see your Major League swing speed and resulting ball distance and direction calculated and displayed on the PNC Park diamond.
