I have been wanting to build this thing as long as I understood the physics of how it all works. A super big thanks to David Linderman, Jeremy Fielding, Trent, and David Woodall (the welder).
I realize most people who support Smarter Every Day don't do it for "transactional" reasons, (ie, I'll support Smarter Every Day to get stuff). I also realized that there is often a mental hurdle that must be crossed before support on Patreon starts. My thought is that I'd really like to give folks a baseball, and it might provide enough momentum to get over that initial hurdle. I signed the first shipment of baseballs I received, but I only have so many of those. There's no implication that my signature is worth anything.... it's just kind of what you do with baseballs... it's a tradition. After a certain number, it will transition to unsigned baseballs. I've got enough signed baseballs to over all existing Patrons, and many more, but I will wait a month or so to see how many I need to get, then I'll order the second batch. I like to support jobs and pay people for what they're good at. The machinists and welders who made the parts in this video for example. The whole intent here is to diversify away from solely being ad sponsored so I don't have to answer to anyone but myself and Patrons with respect to the types of content I choose to make. Thank you for understanding what I'm doing here, and even if you decide not to kick in at www.patreon.com/smartereveryday , I'm super grateful you took the time to watch this video!
Thank you very much,

Nolan Ryan's fastball has been beat, but when adjusted for radar gun placement it may still be the fastest pitch ever:

      Hi, Destin. You've made me think more about supporting you. You've given so much to me already, and I genuinely want to help you continue what you do. However, there is a bit of a snag... I cannot in good conscience support Patreon. I'm quite sure there are more like myself, and if you were to make an option available to support you through SubscribeStar or another service, or even better, directly through your own website where all of the funds will go to you, I and many others would be happy to sign on for monthly support. Best wishes, Destin. Keep getting smarter.

    The ball is already being ripped apart coming out of the pressure cannon. If that hit a wooden bat it would explode the bat, I imagine it would bend in half, if not rip apart an aluminum bat.

    HEY LOVE THE CHANNEL
    PLEASE READ!!!!
    1st- Wow i know most of it is yarn but i swear the cannon is actually separating protien in the leather and im super jealous.
    2.- how much heat is the ball generating on impact with the plate.
    3.- given the consistency of accuracy ( at least to my knowledge ) you need to bolt bats to the steel plate and shoot baseballs at them. Notice i said bats ( plural ) because some are wood and others are aluminum.
    Keep it up.

    Did your cannon also sling out the world's fastest knuckle ball?? I didn't see much rotation! This question popped in my head after watching yall ram rod the baseball into the barrel. I played baseball growing up and I know that a two seam fastball is more aerodynamic than a four seam. So, I was wondering if you could place the ball in the back of the barrel in position to throw a four seam or a two seam fastball, but after watching the whole video I realized its coming out as a knuckleball.
