Disney XD has teamed with ESPN to uncover sports' biggest myths and mysteries, in the series "Disney XD ESPN Sport Science," premiering SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 29 (11:00 a.m., ET/PT) on Disney XD. Hosted by John Brenkus and Leo Howard, black belt martial artist and star of Disney XD's hit series "Kickin' It," the short form series brings together professional athletes in state-of-the-art scientific facilities to test the limits of human athletic abilities, while challenging popular assumptions about athletes and sports.

In the premiere episode, "Full Contact, MLB Vision, Flips & Spins," hosts Brenkus and Howard test the impact of a 300-pound heavy bag and showcase how San Francisco 49er Vernon Davis manages incoming forces to block, catch and run; Howard tries to hit a 90-mph fastball and MLB batting champ Nomar Garciaparra tests the reality of keeping an eye on the ball; Howard tries on special eye tracker glasses and investigates how free style skier, Simon Dumont, keeps track of which end is up while flipping in mid-air.
