So if the distance and height are reachable, why are these equations poor models of hitting a baseball:

y = -0.5x^2 + 216x + 3

y = -0.002x^2 + 0.879x + 3.981

y = -0.002x^2 + 0.8732x - 3.981

why are these equations poor models of hitting a baseball: y= -0.002x(x-433.1) I get maximums of (216,93). Other problems' maximums are in the (220, 100)range. So are they poor models because the distance and heights are unreasonable?
