Multi Colored Smoke Trail Baseball

A real world real time colored smoke trail showing the trajectory and speed of a ball.

TV technology for baseball games has progressed to the point that they can show a baseball's path with a clearly illustrated arc showing its path.

This might be achievable in real life by having a smoke emitting pyrotechnic device that ignites when struck by the bat.

The pyrotechnic device inside will mix more of a particular chemical with another depending on how hard it's hit. The harder it's hit, the redder the smoke. A lightly hit ball will emit blue smoke.

"Wow! He red streaked it out of the park!" They might say. Or "Just a blue bouncer to second for an easy out."

       I thought you meant after the pitcher released the ball. There'd be be lingering trail of smoke showing how much of a corkscrew or riser was thrown. Good idea either way.

       Ok, found it, a smoking soccer ball.   

       I neglected to say that mine is multi color. See additional notes.
