Try using meat or flesh to stop the bell , To see what would happen if the bell hits a human

idea: when your trying to stop a bullet, usually bullet proof glass does a good job, the bullet spents a lot of its energy on breaking the glass before getting through, its stopped before then, so just replace the glass with say a hard leather over the baseball mitt, and maybe that might stop the ball

Idk if you get ideas from comments. But something strange I've noticed is if there's small, light, floating debris in a small bowl of water and you put a torch lighter to the surface everything collects to where the flame is concentrated.

I'm honestly surprised that the baseball can handle travelling at that speed at all! Goes to show how durable leather is and the engineering behind the lacing pattern. I would've thought it wouldn't even make it out the barrel without getting shredded to pieces.

All these incredibly smart dudes that built a rig to fire a baseball mach 1.3 but nobody thought to put a mirror at the end of the cannon to record off instead of that camera held by a tractor and bulletproof shields lol

Love your reaction when you invented fire. A little over-engineered, if you don't mind me saying. And possibly a little late on the scene.

I think the flame was just the intense amount of instant friction. Like rubbing two sticks together to create 🔥 but this was just instant.

It's not fire in terms of oxidation. It's air being compressed between ball and glove, getting to hot that it starts radiating visible light ("glowing"). The color indicates that i must be around 2000°C/3500°F which is quite impressive.

The glove has oil which was ignited from the stitching. You have to oil the glove so it doesn't dry out.

To create a fire you need heat, fuel, and oxygen. The friction provides the heat.

From my days playing baseball many many decades ago. we used to always treat our gloves with a leather conditioner. The friction of the ball on the glove may have been enough to ignite the leather conditioner ?

2 Questions. What if you sandwiched the gloves together so that they assisted each other strength wise instead of clearing each glove individually? How far would the ball travel unobstructed? You gotta test the max range of this beast!
