Study shows baseball players are affected by jet lag

If a 162-game season wasn't already mentally and physically taxing enough A new study finds that jet lag takes a major toll on pro baseball teams and it surprisingly has a worse effect on the home team The study was conducted by Ravi Allada, a neurobiologist at Northwestern University says Allada The theory is that players return home to extra responsibilities at home keeping them from getting the sleep they need to fight jet lag Pitchers are having the hardest time with it Jet-lagged pitchers give up more home runs than pitchers who aren’t struggling to adjust to multiple time-zone shifts, the study shows but one guy who must be immune to jet lag is Mets hurler Noah Syndergaard who only gave up 11 home runs in 30 starts last season
