David “Cannonball” Smith is one of the most popular minor league baseball promotions in the country. He hops in a cannon and is shot over the outfield wall in what is dubbed the Human Home Run. In the video below, Smith talks about his career, the physics behind being a human cannonball, and how his passion has become a family affair. You also get to see the human cannonball get launched 75 feet in the air and cover 165 feet of distance before clearing the outfield wall at a Lowell Spinners game. It’s pretty awesome.
