A baseball thrown at 100 mph will be hit at about 130 mph.

a) assuming the ball goes straight up and comes into contact with the bat at 5ft. off the ground, how high could the ball reach?

b) If the ball is hit to the outfield, how much time does the outfielder have to get under the ball from the time the ball was first hit?

Thank you in advance.
