      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

    2 Questions. What if you sandwiched the gloves together so that they assisted each other strength wise instead of clearing each glove individually? How far would the ball travel unobstructed? You gotta test the max range of this beast!

    Dustin, I love your videos and I'm an avid fan of your channel. But I gotta say, that waste of 9 100% fine gloves was meaningless... C'mon man you know better that such waste is just bad for the environment... It's a scientific channel, not one of those dumb hydraulic press ones... Keep enriching us with great knowledge!

    You should put the glove on an arm with a spring mechanism to allow it to swing whilst catching the ball. The trick is getting the arm to start moving before catching the ball.
