"Disney XD ESPN Sport Science" is a series on Disney XD that is hosted by John Brenkus and "Kickin' It" star and black belt martial artist Leo Howard. The series also features Los Angeles Lakers star Dwight Howard, Arizona Cardinals star Larry Fitzgerald and snowboarder Shaun White.

Disney XD has teamed with ESPN to uncover sports' biggest myths and mysteries in this short form series that 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.

Combining the best segments of ESPN's Emmy Award-winning series "ESPN Sport Science," each episode will feature three segments, with Brenkus and Howard using scientific experiments to test topics, including laws of gravity, momentum, size, speed, skill and stamina.

The series features appearances by NBA stars Dwight Howard (Los Angeles Lakers) and JaVale McGee (Denver Nuggets); NFL stars Vernon Davis (San Franciso 49ers), Larry Fitzgerald (Arizona Cardinals), Jahvid Best (Detroit Lions) and Brandon Jacobs (San Franciso 49ers); former MLB star and current ESPN analyst Nomar Garciaparra; soccer star Zach Thornton; snowboarders Shaun White and Sage Kotsenburg; skateboarder Bob Burnquist; skier Simon Dumont; Olympic softball player Danielle Lawrie and NCAA basketball player Brittney Griner (Baylor Lady Bears).

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.
