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:

Thanks Destin. 
I do not want a baseball. I have no idea about the rules of the game, except that one person throws a ball at another, who tries to whack it with a wrong-shaped stick and then he sometimes goes and sits down again, but at other times he runs away, but going around a square. But, while he is doing that, others try to throw a ball at him, just because the first guy missed him.
It looks a bit like organised bullying, crossed with a garbled version of golf, except that in golf, the idea is to bat the stationary ball really hard with a walking stick, and to lose as many balls as possible while they're on their cross-country walk together and before they go off for a drink. It's almost completely incomprehensible. 
That said, the video was interesting. Thanks for making throwing that ball much more exciting. They do need to be made much stronger though. Perhaps if they were made out of Iron, they would be more effective?

It’s quite feasible to make 6 figures in passive income annually, I have made over $420k from April till now, with no funny strategies, i'm just basically getting guidance from a Broker that I found in a times magazine where she was featured, her name is Melanie Bailey Hess , you can hit her up if you care to.
