  • No one noticed that the very first glove only shot, there was fire as well?? Before the shot where they are surprised, the previous shot has an arc of fire around the ball after it came out from the glove.

  • I think you could attach the glove on a rotating motor that is really, really quick. This is done to reduce the contact velocity between the gloves and the ball... Also, I think the fire is caused by air being compressed...

  • Now I wanna see this thing vs body armour. According to my admittedly average math skill, 466m/s for a baseball that weighs 149 grams means roughly 16,100 Joules of energy. In layman's terms, 10 times the energy of Mike Tyson's punch.

  • A couple of observations by a fellow Alabamian...(WDE by the way)... 1) The ball did not or was not deflected off "course" even after it had gone through the Glove and Bob... As a former pitcher and having coached (volunteer) pitchers the seams and or how the ball rotates relative to the seams affects the trajectory of the ball...of course unless the ball is approaching @ Mach 1.35 then the seams are moot it SEEMS... 2) The absolute sadistic yet absolutely factual justified conclusion which I immediately thought of when Destin asked about what would happen to the ball & BOB prior to the 1st Pitch was the exact same, word for word, ie. verbatim, stated so eloquently on site which was, "...Bob is gonna die..."...which caused the other's to break a rib laughing so hard it SEEMED... 3) Although I would not have wished for anyone to been hurt...when I saw the slo-mo "replay" with the ball coming back towards their CP (Command Post)...I could not help but to imagine one of them being hit in the forehead and knocked out with the "stitches" of the ball imprinted on their coconut...sorta like Joe Pesci when he was hit in the face by the hot iron in Home Alone (think was him)...or at the least made them all dive for cover would have been funny as well... 4) TRENT...there is always that one friend...he literally can not help himself...Trent, Stud Man...I'm sure we all agree you were rocking the shot with the drone...UNTIL YOU WEREN'T...Really??? The ONLY TREE in the PASTURE and you couldn't help a magnet...GEEZ...(funny though) 4) Did anyone NOT notice the torn parts of the glove causing as much if not more damage than if Bob would have been hit with a 5.56mm or 7.62mm round bullet...either way, a bullet or baseball glove... we all know now both can cause lethal/mortal injuries...OH NO, Please NO... ---GEEZ...I PRAY NO LIBERALS ARE VIEWING THIS VIDEO BECAUSE THE LAST THING WE NEED NOW IS... GLOVE CONTROL LEGISLATION... THANKS FOR THAT DESTIN!!!
