Scientists believe climate change is leading to hotter temperatures, more severe storms, increased drought and other risks to life on Earth.

In this edition of Reading Baseball, Pete Peterson looks at how climate change could be impacting something we may not have considered...more home runs in Major League Baseball.

Reading Baseball is a series of essays and commentaries by Richard "Pete" Peterson, author of Growing Up With Clemente and the editor of The St. Louis Baseball Reader.
