Math Lesson

I don't know how long this link will work, but if you go there and click on "Video: Seeing Joel Zumaya's fastball up close," you'll see 2 things, an equation for velocity and some really sweet looking tattoos for a smoke-throwing reliever. The equation presented is velocity = speed / time. Speed divided by time gives you the units distance divided by time squared, namely acceleration, not velocity.
