My thoughts exactly! Its shooter appears to be a regular 2 wheel shooter, maybe they made some sort of modification.

At first I thought they might be using an FTC robot! The only thing I could think is if it was a catapult... apparently not

Re: Robots in the D

I'm not sure but I heard they might have made a custom robot for this purpose.
That would suffice the baseball/RR ball size difference, but it sounds like quite a bit of work for this application.

Ah, that would make more sense, because I can't see how they would modify their current robot. seems like allot of work though!

But it would definitely be worth it! I'd personally like to see it throw a 200 mph pitch, and then see Verlander try to one up it.

Just hope they don't make it on the Not Top 10

Now if they could only make the robot be able to help Papa Grande figure out what's wrong with his splitter...

Re: Robots in the D

I e-mailed them for more info on the demo and such. We'll see what happens now

By the way, team 234 made a frc bot to pitch a baseball last year. I believe it is on thier website somewhere. Or maybe Chris can chime in on this. The ball definitely didn't go 200km/h lol

Re: Robots in the D

If someone involved from Frog Force would like to post how teams can help with online promotion, Team 341 would love help promote this event.
Best of luck to everyone involved.

There most likely will be a video made after the pitch and put on youtube. Im gonna guess Frog Force will make a video about the event. Not sure if it will be on TV or LIVEstreamed.

Even 200 km/h would be impressive, but 200 mph is 61% faster...

The game will be on Fox Sports Detroit and MLB.tv, and they usually show first pitches.
