Frank 'Cannonball' Richards taking a sledge hammer blow to the midsection

Frank “Cannonball” Richards isn’t a household name but I’m sure you have definitely seen him before… he got his name by having a 104 pound cannonball fired into his gut on a regular basis (we’ll cover that in another post.)

You may have seen “Cannonball” Richards’ picture on the cover of the Van Halen “III” CD, or you may have caught him spoofed in an episode of The Simpsons, or maybe you have even seen the famous footage as it has been used in several commercials over the years, either way “Cannonball” Richards will go down in history as the man with the world’s hardest stomach.

Here he takes a sledge hammer blow to the midsection without so much as a wince.
