A coach is hitting pop flies to the outfielders. If the baseball (mass = 145 g) stays in contact with the bat for 0.03 s and leaves the bat with a speed of 60 m/s, what is the average force acting on the ball?

Need help setting up this problem

impulse equation ...

$F_{avg} \Delta t = m \Delta v$
