Hi Phoenix.

I will start directly by saying yes I don't think chance existe, everything is mathematic. That is what I beleived but has you said mankind are far from being able to calculate base ball game, there is to much factor to considerate.

There is the simple thing to chek before being able to calculate ex: the width of the feild, the wind factor, the weater, the temperature, how gravity act on that feild, how gravity act on each position of that feild, how gravity act when one persone on the feild, how it act when that person is moving, how it act when there is 2,3,4,5 or one team, what is the degree of friction of that grass, what material as been use for the bat, what is the pollution degree etc...

Now the fun part humain interaction you will have to calculate every brain of every player, witch mean every tough they had since they was born will influence that match. Maybe one player will play differently if is mother's dead last week, or as simple as it can be like the color of his new car will influence is performance, every action he have with every person in is life will influence that match. He will not even being conscient of that but that will affect.

Now analyse the million of information of that player and put it in your formula to see how he will play, after with every other player enter each of them in the formula how they will interact with each other, you will have an other result put that with every phisical element of that feild and you will have your answer.

A basse ball game is so complexe to calculate cause there is millions an millions informations to consider an they all interact with each other. Far but far but realy far away from sending someone to mars. Sending someone to mars is a piece of cake insted of calculation the result of a basse ball game. That's not cause it's unusual that it's complicated.

One good student will be able to calculate by a simple linear math to calculate this tripe, rotation of earth around the sun, rotation of mars, see the shorter distance calculate that distance he will see by a simple calcule that it will take 8 month to go when mars is at is nearess and 4 years to return if they stay one month. now calculate if you have enought fuel and here we go .

A basseball game is non-linear math (chaos theorie) With comlpex patern, you will have to chek every patern of everything how do they affect each other and you will be very close to your answer.
