Step up to the plate and explore how science has shaped the sport of baseball at Science Speakeasy, A Giant Advantage: Baseball in Our Bones. This special event will feature cocktails, food, music and activities, all mixed with interactive scientific discussions. 

First Dr. Nathan Young, evolutionary biologist and UCSF professor, will be exploring how our arms and shoulders set us apart from other animals, and why our ability to throw with power and accuracy is such a giant advantage.

Then Dr. Ken Akizuki, orthopedic surgeon for the San Francisco Giants and proud owner of two World Series rings, will talk about the difference between a good pitcher and a great pitcher. He’ll also share his experience keeping elite athletes in winning condition, especially after injury.

Science Speakeasy takes place Wednesday, July 12 from 6-9 pm at Public Works in San Francisco. For tickets and additional information, please visit
