Can you bring him to Boston? We'll give you Beckett and Lester.

it actually had a pretty interesting curve ball at full speed.

Once we got it dialed in, it was very consistent with strikes and ball placement. We used the camera on the front to align to the glove.

We knew we only had one pitch when we go on the field, so a lot of time went into making sure we did everything we could to make it good.

If you took 4 wheels and put them in a form such that they would touch the top right, top left, bottom right, and bottom left, I wonder if you could get it to pitch a knuckleball.

A knuckleball is simply a pitch with no spin, so any number of evenly spaced and equally fast wheels would create such a pitch.

EDIT: They don't have to be evenly spaced, just symmetrical across two perpendicular axes when viewed from the front.

Think almost any two-axle shooter from this year.

I'm curious as to what speeds it pitched at as well.
