more robot baseball

If Cubs pitchers keep getting hurt, here’s a solution… baseball robots. 

These robots are the creation of a Japanese (of course) professor Masatoshi Ishikawa who is from the Graduate School of Information Science and Technology at the University of Tokyo.

The pitching robot throws at 25 mph and hits the strike zone close to 90% of the time.  Ishikawa hopes to increase the pitch speed to 90mph.  He also wants to introduce the curve ball to the robot.  Hey now, be careful of those arm injuries!
