⇊ Click below for more links! ⇊
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,
Destin

When I was younger, my favorite baseball players were Cal Ripken Jr. and Nolan Ryan 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:

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 Trash Pandas should invite you to "throw" out the first pitch when they can start playing. I'm sure it would be a New League Record!
One thing did concern me about this video though, where did that first test firing come down? Seems a bit unsafe to just fire something like this into the air. That ball had to have more kinetic energy than a bullet, and I'd never fire a bullet into the air like that.

P.S. I love your videos!

Would rifling the barrel have any affect on how the baseball travels when it leaves the barrel? Also is it possible to release air into the barrel in a way to induce a spin on the baseball to force a certain type of trajectory?
