    idea: when your trying to stop a bullet, usually bullet proof glass does a good job, the bullet spents a lot of its energy on breaking the glass before getting through, its stopped before then, so just replace the glass with say a hard leather over the baseball mitt, and maybe that might stop the ball

    This is quite insane... seeing as of something the size of a baseball can cause so much destruction. Only shows how powerfull and piercing a bullet actualy is. I wonder how a football will hold up in terms of speed. Is it even possible to get it to Mach 1? Due to its size in surface and air friction

    Things to test: -Tensile strength of glove / force required to pull (or push) a baseball through it, stated as weight of baseball at gravity -Whether snapping/yanking/pulling a glove apart at hiiigh speed will cause flash fire, and why. Or... -Whether leather against leather at high enough speed (mad batter with a leather strap!?!?) will cause flash fire -What the heck this baseball would do to a car, or stadium lights (fan of The Natural here)

    Looks like it would liquify dudes hand with a palm catch with a net catch it would still mangle the wrist and maybe snap the forearm like a twig. The multi glove was awesome! Wrap the lether in 1/2 cm thick of kevlar or woven carbon fiber around the leather

    The ball center went through. You could use either air or liquied hydraulics powered recoil or make the pad out of a hexagonal arrangement at both ends of a copper coil or tube of earth magnets and a copper tube then the metal wont flex

    Hi destin, In practical terms, when we catch the ball we use our arm to decelerate the ball and make it stop, so now the ball comes out from cannon(machine) u need some kind of robotic arm(machine) to catch it, which will decelerate the ball and make it stop. keep the thrower(cannon) and catcher(robotic arm with glove) at the same distance as the real game and try to catch the ball without damaging the ball or glove.

    Do it with a Wilson "A2000," or a Rawlings "Heart of the Hide" catchers mitt. It would be cool to know if a professional grade glove will catch it, and not tear through.
