Sick Boy Uses Cool Robot To Throw Out First Pitch From 2,000 Miles Away

Technology: not all bad!

The LeGrandes and Google built an miniature, indoor baseball field at his grandmother's, along with a sensor that detected his movements. The movements controlled a robot, seen here being wheeled out in the A's stadium.

At home, LeGrand threw the ball. And at the stadium, the robot mimicked his motions, throwing out the first pitch of the game. A's catcher Ryan Cook, who caught the pitch, helped facilitate the whole thing.

Check out the video of the whole thing, courtesy of MLB, below.
