  • Why don't you try absorbing the ball into a moving glove rather than keeping the glove fixed to a contraption. My theory is a glove that is fixed to a moving contraption that will be designed to absorb the impact. I don't know.

  • I used to work in a bicycle shop for 4 years and they all come 90% assembled bit the break technology is awesome something that I've never seen before that's awesome but the twist shift has issues, mostly when the cables start to bind they become near impossible to shift I prefer a trigger style shifter it's more reliable but the twist shift is more kid friendly, I suggest going to a lever shift when their fingers get long enough to throw the lever. But I love this breaking system an ingenious design it's great!

  • Hey, I know im a bit late to this, but i think i have a theory on why the basket weave ignited. It reminded me of a physics demo from thermodynamics where you have a sealed gas container with a plunger and a piece of cotton at the bottom. Compress the plunger, and the ideal gas law requires the higher pressure gas to increase in temperature, and the cotton ignites. Im guessing that the geometry of the more airtight basket weave leather could have led to a rapidly compressing gas pocket, heating the air and temporarily igniting the leather. This would explain why only the basket weave did this and how the high temperatures needed for igniting the leather could be achieved. Anyway, that's just my theory.

  • Best guess is fire is caused by either friction igniting glove/air, or air pressure in front of the ball causing ignition of air/glove

  • What an awesome video. The netted glove is made for pitchers to hide their hands when they choose their pitch to throw, and have to change grips inside the glove. But it definitely not stronger than the H web. H webs are used by fielders and can handle 100 mph line drives.

  • I don't know if anyone else mentioned this, but there is some form of ignition behind the ball prior to the it striking the glove at 10:52 which corresponds to 102.231 ms on the high speed footage. Maybe there was a solvent on the ball that ignited because of the friction experienced by the ball traveling through the air?

The Earth is constantly expanding, Evidence is that Hawaii volcanic lava is constantly erupting. Jupiter ' s magnetic field is 20 times stronger than the Earth ' s, so Jupiter expanding is 20 times faster than the Earth, Jupiter future grewup creating the Sun
