Climate change could be affecting the outcome of baseball games, according to a study by Dartmouth College. The research found that over 500 home runs since 2010 can be linked to higher-than-average temperatures resulting from climate change. While only 1% of recent home runs are attributed to climate change, the researchers predict that rising temperatures could account for 10% or more of home runs by 2100 if greenhouse gas emissions continue to increase. Warmer temperatures reduce the density of air, causing a batted ball to fly farther on a warm day.
