  • They've made a 3 inch cannon. I wonder in what jurisdiction they made/filmed this because someone might come after them for at least some sort of licensing or registration of that thing? A baseball has a diameter of 3 inches and a weight of over 5 ounces and they are firing it at 1500 feet per second? !!? It certainly will go through the dummy and leather like butter. Consider that a shotgun slug is 1 ounce and is less than 1 inch in diameter and typically has a muzzle velocity of 1500 feet per second or even less. So this baseball has 5 times the mass of a shotgun slug not taking into account the different density in material and diameter (thats the only reason it doesn't dent or penetrate the steel plate) making it at least 5 times as powerful as a shotgun with velocity being equal. Now if they fired a ball made of different material or some kind of sabot metal slug in this bore and now they have a serious cannon with steel penetrating ability.....and maybe legal problems???

  • My bet on "where does the fire come from" would be a high compression of air before the basket weave (while the air can escape more easily through the H-straps). The concept can be demonstrated by a so called "pneumatic lighter" which is a fun experiment by itself. What do you think, could that be the reason for the fire?

  • I think because the basket weave mitt has more surface to surface contact with the ball so it creates enough friction to cause a spark.

  • Not sure if anyone else has mentioned this b/c I didn't read every comment but something I noticed is that the ball is traveling with no rotation. Trevor Bauer has written a piece about the correlation between ball rotation and velocity as well as pitch movement. Obviously you want the ball to travel straight so you'd have to look at what type of rotation. I'm just saying you can get that cannon faster than 1050mph with the right spin... Keep up the excellent work!
