Robot throws ceremonial first pitch at D-backs game
The Arizona Diamondbacks jogged a similar pitcher out to the mound Wednesday to throw out the ceremonial first pitch before their game with the Washington Nationals. Except, this robot had a name, a t-shirt and other personification touches.
The robot's name was Bruce, and he was a creation of Paradise Valley High School's S.T.E.M. (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) program.
Bruce's pitch kicked off a collaborative effort between the Diamondbacks, the high school, Chase and Insight, who are together launching a new program called the Science of Baseball.
