      1. Filippo Bertolazzi

        There's fire in the other shot too 9:50

      2. Joseph Manjarrez

        Make, hitting a super sonic baseball with a ____mph baseball bat

      3. Christian Newkirk

        Love you guys and the vids

      4. Jonathan Mora


      5. Fantastic Fred!

        Oh no not Bob

    2. Zachary Gray

      They should make a new home run record with the baseball cannon and the mad batter, it would go like 2000 feet

    3. Agent Joe

      A MacBook Pro running Windows 10. Okay

    4. Qsey


    5. Jason Kyle Chua

      dude he can put a projectile and then it becomes a tank gun

    6. Jordinho Charles

      If Saitama was a pitcher 😂😂😂

    7. Jordinho Charles

      I bet I can throw faster 😌

    8. Ryan Moir

      I watched all this for a bike commercial. What a ripoff. When was there a bike pandemic?! Gtfo.

    9. Dominik Raith

      It would be very interesting to see how far the baseball would fly, if you aim the canon at a 20 degree upward angle

    10. Samantha Fox

      Just a suggestion, this is now the Supersonic Baseball Cannon M1 *A* because you modified it. ;) Love it!

    11. canadian_gamerzs lol

      is it just me or is the guy talkijng about bikes johnathen torrents ? face wise there twins

    12. Dark Knight

      Know make it faster then light

    13. Andrew Phillips

      What is the thickness of your camera Plexiglass? Next time you take this toy out, lets see how it holds up. 1" plexy....I say it will go through 6 of them.

    14. James M

      Friction is a crazy thing

    15. Ezio Robledo

      am I the only one that read 24/7 in the title

    16. Jack Weyland

      14:06 The ball definintley slows down

    17. 1 0

      I’m no scientist and this next question will make it obvious. Can something move so fast toward a fixed object that it bends light between both objects and produces fire?

    18. lovelessissimo

      I wonder what is the highest speed a ball can impact a glove without breaking the leather.

      1. lovelessissimo

        @Jamal ColoradoYou took the effort to write that?

      2. Jamal Colorado


    19. Okin Nivlek

      That bicycle brake is pretty neat.

    20. James Insley

      what the... the ball had fire behind it when you put the 1st glove in front of bob

    21. Tim Cuatt

      I love how much damage the GLOVE SHRAPNEL did to poor bob.

    22. Jacob Nash

      Is there a reason you don't use mirrors and you high-speed camera?

    23. Hi Hi

      You guys should hook up the bat machine and do the real longest hit

    24. Melissa Sonntag

      My son LOVED this! He is 9 yrs old and I am homeschooling him. What advice do you have for him if he wants to do stuff like this one day?

    25. Emily Conner ᎶᎪᎷᎥᏁᎶ ᏟᎻᎪᏁᏁᎬᏞ

      Absolutely unbelievable. You guys are geniuses. 👏🏼

    26. Carver Hall

      I love mark rober and I love baseball he’s a baseball mark rober

    27. Hou Felix

      super cool

    28. Maa Media

      Brute.force through 9 gloves 😜

    29. Mr Pudding

      Yamcha playing baseball?

    30. Joseph Dodgson

      They've made a 3 inch cannon. I wonder in what jurisdiction they made/filmed this because someone might come after them for at least some sort of licensing or registration of that thing? A baseball has a diameter of 3 inches and a weight of over 5 ounces and they are firing it at 1500 feet per second? !!? It certainly will go through the dummy and leather like butter. Consider that a shotgun slug is 1 ounce and is less than 1 inch in diameter and typically has a muzzle velocity of 1500 feet per second or even less. So this baseball has 5 times the mass of a shotgun slug not taking into account the different density in material and diameter (thats the only reason it doesn't dent or penetrate the steel plate) making it at least 5 times as powerful as a shotgun with velocity being equal. Now if they fired a ball made of different material or some kind of sabot metal slug in this bore and now they have a serious cannon with steel penetrating ability.....and maybe legal problems???

    31. Andrew Guillen

      They should’ve put catchers gear on the dummy and hit the helmet and the pads with the baseball

    32. Dylan Waybright

      Bro I was thinking the ball would go through all of them and then it did and I was amazed cus it was slowing down and was like [no way its gonna] well theres my successful answer 😄

    33. jo #gacha

      you can literally see a blue flame like when a asteroid hit earth you see a flame behind it "got to go fast"

    34. Sophia Huang

      I wonder what will happen if you build two cannons and shoot them both at the same time

    35. Dani Mota

      man, money and time. this is one of the results.

    36. TheCatInASuit

      i hope i dont see this in a war

    37. Rolando Gamboa

      This baseball cannon vs the baseball bat from Stuff Made Here

    38. Jo Schi

      My bet on "where does the fire come from" would be a high compression of air before the basket weave (while the air can escape more easily through the H-straps). The concept can be demonstrated by a so called "pneumatic lighter" which is a fun experiment by itself. What do you think, could that be the reason for the fire?

    39. Russell Scott

      Atta boy Bobby, way to keep your body in front of the ball. Bob? Bob? Nice play, Bob. Bob? Bob? Bobby? Hello?

    40. DesignGear

      I'm dying we have a glove in front of bob! LOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOL

    41. jbcooler ninja

      yikes you can see the speed behind the ball 6:25

    42. Fahim Maf

      Try golf ball

    43. SeregaKhl

      Less talk for videos chrono, more video pls

    44. Christian Gerard Mantuano

      What will happen when the glove is metal Plz Do Dis

    45. Nah Nah

      1:27 that’s how was ps2 song was made

    46. Maira Cisneros

      I want to see how far that will go

    47. william bush

      Id like to see it throw a knuckle ball and a curve. maybe put tacky something on one side of barrel bore for a curve ball. shoot an undersized ball for knuckler.

    48. william bush

      11.31 the oil or mink grease is combusting from the intense mojo.

    49. vr4 luva

      now steel ball

    50. Casey Kelso

      Fire happened 2x in the 9 mit test , only on weave ones , look closely

    51. Jessica Guarin

      so does that mean I can't bunker baseball gloves in case there is a war with baseballs?

    52. Bill M.

      I heard that the Yankees just signed this thing..."2022 - To the End of Time World Series Champs!" 😂

    53. Rens de Vries

      i live in the netherlands and those bikes arent so special, we are bike royals over here

    54. Дмитрий Сергеевич

      looks like demolition ranch with Math

    55. OBS J Lee

      Y’all should see if will shoot the baseball threw a tree lol

    56. Mitchell Barker

      The ball that created combustion when hitting the glove actually had a flame trailing behind it right before it hit!

      1. Okin Nivlek

        Good eye. I just went back and there's definitely something like fire behind the ball before impact just after 10:51.

    57. Malibu Ice

      I think because the basket weave mitt has more surface to surface contact with the ball so it creates enough friction to cause a spark.

    58. J.Films09

      The vapor coming off that ball

    59. PizzaDog500

      5:04 looks like Ludwig

    60. Matthew Calmert

      This is why anime baseball doesn't work

    61. chad kenty

      What dose it do in water a vacume or boble cose of the presur

    62. brady moritz

      I love this cannon but it's definitely wasting a ton of air. Most of the volume is dumping after the ball is long gone. I'm almost certain the valve is not opening rapidly enough.

    63. Troy Smith

      Anime villain: 4:54 Anime villain 30 seconds later: HEH HEH! This is just getting interesting!

    64. BNZ 369

      try shot the bes ball to the bes stick mabey the stick is broken

    65. Redpanda Plays

      you guys have made a war weapon;-;

    66. Dylan L.

      Idk about bob but I would’ve simply caught the ball

    67. Kunay

      Rip Bob🙏🏻

    68. Alain Isabelle de Montréal

      wet the glove

    69. Tayler Marks

      so cool

    70. Mensa Swede

      TIG welding is your friend if you’re building awesome stuff like this!

    71. Tommy Macdonald

      This is pointless and fascinating at the same time

    72. Sergio Guerra

      I can only imagine a fighter jet getting being striked down by literally a supersonic baseball

    73. WoUd WaNg

      Coach: the pitch isn’t that fast The pitch:

    74. Corey Kregenow

      Not sure if anyone else has mentioned this b/c I didn't read every comment but something I noticed is that the ball is traveling with no rotation. Trevor Bauer has written a piece about the correlation between ball rotation and velocity as well as pitch movement. Obviously you want the ball to travel straight so you'd have to look at what type of rotation. I'm just saying you can get that cannon faster than 1050mph with the right spin... Keep up the excellent work!

    75. Alexander Yeverino

      If you aimed the cannon straight up how high will the baseball go?

    76. binkymagnus

      "Hit by pitch, take your base!...........You ok?"

    77. ZeroXF5

      Wonder if this thing could fire a wiffleball and how would it travel ?

    78. ThatSaltyKid

      I mean, you CAN do this at your friend's house because it says to not try it at YOUR home.

    79. Eva Stephens

      the ball was on fire once! litteraly! also i am a 9 year old

    80. Autumn Aarilyn

      When Ted Williams talked to Mark McGuire, he asked him if he could smell the bat smoking when he hit.

    81. Geo VII

      4:54 The ball becomes a hadoken.... wtf.

    82. Jeremy Chung

      I'm surprised this is even legal. This could totally be used to shoot planes out of the air or knock down castle walls or perform other warlike tasks. It totally looks like an anti-aircraft gun

    83. RicardoM. Santiago

      Waooo..... I see the ball wooo...

    84. Stampy Cat


    85. youtoober2013

      When you don't come prepared with enough mitts for your own supersonic baseball cannon: 11:11

    86. youtoober2013

      11:25 I think it was the friction from the threads being pulled from their holes so quickly.

    87. youtoober2013

      8:52 Me: they got protection for the camera... I wonder where they are going to stand... Oh, a few feet away with no protective gear. ...It's a good thing they're under a tent... DID YOU NOT SEE WHAT IT DID TO BOB YOU FOOLS?!

      1. youtoober2013

        I saw the shield after, still.

    88. youtoober2013

      When random engineers across the planet create more powerful weapons than the military... we'll have freedom lol.

    89. DVR8-4580V SWANN

      You need an ultrasonic glove to catch the ultrasonic ball.

    90. Joseph Pukstyle

      If you look closely the ball that caught fire already had a small flame behind it before it hit the glove

    91. Dylan Yeager

      And that was only it's changeup pitch

    92. Nuclear Rc

      How is that legal?

    93. Clarence Hicks

      Just imagine if you put a rotation on it

    94. Clarence Hicks

      You have to put the baseball mitt on a spinning axis and you have to try to match the speed of the ball I think at least half the speed of the ball the baseball net will have to rotate but that's how you will catch the ball use that information my son go off and be good in life. You have to get the timing right as possible I know how to do it I can see it all in my heads

    95. Necromancer HD

      I think the fire came from the friction from the ball being at the gloves at over 1.000 mph (mk 1.35) or maybe it was the leather.

    96. Leveled Rogue

      So dont play baseball in an isekai world 🤔

    97. ruxiiy

      Who got pumpkin'd on tiktok and came here

    98. jephisodes adventures

      Hey give bob a break he's tired of getting donuted

    99. Civil DK

      "smarter every day".. @ 11:39 w/ playback speed, @ .25.. ! Just.. ALOT more funny! THUMBS UP!!!

    100. youutubestinks

      is that legal in your country? o_0
