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

If the cannon was pointed up to the sky how high do you think the ball would go?? That's what I want to see now 😂

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.

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 ?

Why is this recommended to me. This is a bit stupid. They're acting shocked that firing a baseball out of cannon at 1000mph wreaks havoc on whatever it strikes.

Do this against a car door. Also, be cool to see how far this would launch in like a mile long field. That would be cool. How much did it cost to build that beast if you guys don’t mind.

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!

The fire started at the tale of the ball right before it hit the glove. It wasn't leather to leather. It was because the ball was moving so fast.
