You're Out!: Robot Throws First Pitch At Baseball Game

Watch out, Tony the Tiger!

Because most humans abandoned the city a long ago, a targeting robot was called in to throw the first pitch at a Detroit Tigers game last night. It didn't actually THROW the ball though, it shot it out of a pneumatic cannon, similar to the way I plan on infiltrating the evil wizard's castle and rescuing the princess. She better not look like a troll though or I'm just gonna tell her I'm the butler.

Hit the jump for a video of the ball-launcher.

Thanks to 1jaxstate1 and AlaskaNick, who don't pitch balls, only ideas. They're creatives.

    Wow detroit must be pretty boring for the ooo's and ahh's coming out of that crowd, that was weak I mean batting cages when I was a kid had more balls than that and shot staighter too!

    couldnt even make it across the plate.. pathetic. even a batting cage pitching machine´╗┐ could do better.

    if it were 2 years ago, you might as well throw a pitch at a Lions game. wouldn't have really made a difference if they were playing football or baseball.

    FYI- the Tigers' mascot's name is Paws, not Tony.

  • Gary Bartram

    I think you mean't TIGERS and not lions, oh my....

  • Nick Adelman

    I'm glad I'm not the only one that caught that. I'm not even from Detroit and I'm not particularly a fan of baseball... and I knew that. Sinners.

    Starting a baseball game with a robotic ball cannon -- a pretty good idea.
