ABSTRACT

Brad Bedenbaugh

While reading National Geographic, an article was came upon that promted research to understand more about jet lag effecting professional sports (baseball). East coast teams have better winning percentages than the West coast teams when traveling across three time zones. By learning more about jet lag and the effect it has on professional sports players (baseball), then and only then is the achievement achieved.

After finding all the information needed the experiment began. The 1996 baseball season was used for finding the average or percentage of home games won by East and West coast teams. After naming the East and West Coast teams, their schedule was looked at to find the playing East and West coast teams. Then by determining a win and lost percentage of the East and West coast teams was the comparison made and conclusions drawn.

The National League East won an average of 46% of the games that was played against the National League West. The National League West won an average of 53% of the games that was played against the National League East. The American League East won an average of 56% of the games that was played against the American League West. The American League West won an average of 44% of the games that was played against the American League East. Over all the East teams of the American & National League's won an average of 51%, while the West teams of the American & National League's won an average of 48.5%.
