Even Major League teams turn to NOAA to play ball. Last winter, an undisclosed team contacted NOAA's National Centers for Environmental Information, part of the National Environmental Satellite, Data and Information Service that also oversees satellites. The team was looking for weather data. Even small changes in altitude, humidity, and temperature can change how the ball moves during a game. Sure, it's a small thing—and not nearly as important as wildfires or storm tracking—but it is the great American pastime.
