**Reiny**, Monday, January 3, 2011 at 5:53pmAre we to assume that the path of the ball follows a quadratic function ?

If so, then (200,82) would be the vertex.

let the equation be y = a(x-200)^2 + 82

when x = 0, y = 2

2 = a(-200)^2 + 82

a = -1/500

so y = (-1/500)(x-200)^2 + 82

when x = 380

y = (-1/500)(380-200)^2 + 82 = 17.2

which is more than 10 feet

so , yes, it will clear the home run wall
