popular 'sport science' to return in March

Fox Sports Network’s “Sport Science” will start its second season on March 22.

The series, hosted by creator and executive producer John Brenkus, tests the limits of athletic abilities and challenges assumptions about athletes and sports under the scientific guidance of Dr. Cindy Bir.

Mr. Brenkus will welcome many new athletes into the “Sport Science” lab this season, including NFL stars Ray Lewis, Drew Brees, Larry Fitzgerald, Vernon Davis and Tank Johnson; NBA stars Stephon Marbury, Kevin Love, Amare Stoudemire and Luke Walton; and Major League Baseball’s Matt Kemp and James Loney of the Los Angeles Dodgers and pitcher Jake Peavy of the San Diego Padres.

The season’s first episode will test what generates more power, natural adrenaline or an adrenaline shot, with MMA fighter Houston Alexander agreeing to be injected with a dose of epinephrine.
