Update to “diving into first base”

While I still stand by my theory that Punto increases his speed when he dives head-first into first base the way he aims to – which is to touch the base with his hand before landing with the rest of the body.  If he achieves that my theory works.

However, if he lands with his body first (which he does frequently, by my observation), the drag slows him down and he would be better off running through the bag….

Oh well.   As Emily Litella would say “never mind.”
