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 https://www.patreon.com/smartereveryday, I'm super grateful you took the time to watch this video!.
Thank you very much.

When I was younger, my favorite baseball players were Cal Ripken Jr. and Nolan Ryan https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nolan_Ryan
Nolan Ryan's fastball has been beat, but when adjusted for radar gun placement it may still be the fastest pitch ever, https://www.si.com/extra-mustard/2015/04/22/fastball-pitching-documentary-mlb

To put the force of the first firing into perspective, the rough velocity at the camera was about 1540 FPS, pretty close to that of a .22LR. On average a .22 is about 51 grains or about 0.0073 pounds. If my math is right, that’s about 346 joules of force. A baseball weighs an average of 2297 grains or 0.32 pounds. If my math is correct, that’s about 16398 joules. Obviously this isn’t exactly correct, as I’m using an even 1540 FPS, but you get the idea. It’s only about 1500 joules less powerful than a Hornady 750 grain .50 BMG round. Again, that in the first try. Not to mention the size of the projectile, which would probably cause blunt force trauma instead of pure disintegration. Pretty impressive for a trial run with a loss of vacuum.
