Take note that average speed can be computed using the formula

`s_(avg) = (t otal .distance . covered)/ (t otal . time . taken)` 

  Plugging in the given values, the formula becomes

`22.4m/s =(distance)/(1.7s)`

Isolating the distance, the equation turns into

`22.4 m/s * 1.7s = dista n c e`

`33.08 m= dista n c e`

Therefore, the baseball has a traveled a total distance of 33.08 meters.
