Behind the Scenes Video of how we built it: uslift.info/one/eGuWrZeYw2eEuXo/video.html
⇊ 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:

USA science educators have a responsibility to only use the metric system in their presentations. Then.. slowly the USA will migrate to the clearly superior system. And, before you try and get smart, USA used both imperial AND metric standards during the Apollo missions.

That's not a baseball; that's a couple rubber flaps sewn around a ball of rubber bands. A real baseball is made by Rawlings and is leather precisely stitched around what I have been told is a microsingulatiry trapped in a sphere of vaporized gold. This experiment is meaningless.

I just went to the minor league stadium for the Hoots in St. Louis, Mo. and there were 4 other teams there. I dont know if they were minor league or not. But their names where... either the Cheese Heads or the Shredded Cheese, The T'Ravs (Toasted Ravioli) and the best one... The Rubber Chickens. lol They actually had a guy squeezing a rubber chicken in the dugout out when they were playing well. The 4th team had a normal name, the Athletics. lol

As always...spectacular! I discovered your channel about a month ago and have been glued to it ever since. What for me sets them apart from other similar channels is well...you. Your presentation and your enthusiasm is decidedly unique. Keep doing what you do Destin, it's great. One thing I thought you would have commented on but didn't was the fact that the covers on the balls were starting to rip off before they hit the barrier. I know you don't have the time to comment on every aspect of all the things happening, or these would last for hours. But if you pay attention to the shots right before the ball collides with the wall you'll see that they look like the cover is being unstitched, which I find amazing. Never would have thought that the air speed could have such a destructive force! Again, another super job.
