Could something like THIS be modified to throw a ball the way you want it to?

What about a pneumatic cannon? You could develop some kind of ball feed mechanism similar to a paintball gun. See if you can find a video of the one used in the TV Show "fantasy factory". That one would be insane!

You need a pair of big-ish electric motors and some rubber-tyre wheels I believe. If you can find these (or better still something that runs on petroleum?) let us know.
