Events: Techbrick Robotics FRC 3941 shoots the first pitch at the Aberdeen Ironbirds' game July 27, 2012

On July, 27, 2012, Techbrick Robotics (http://www.techbrick.com) and their World Championship FRC 3941 Robot, TAZER, shot out the first pitches at the Aberdeen Ironbirds' game (http://www.milb.com/index.jsp?sid=t488) at Ripken Stadium in Aberdeen, MD (http://www.ripkenstadium.com). We calibrated the shooter to fire exactly 60 feet 1", but then the grounds keeper asked us not to use the pitchers' mound so the 'catcher' had to backup a few feet. In the end we shot 1 strike and 2 balls. Not bad for a rookie pitcher. If you have a local MLB farm team near you ask them if you can do the same. It's great fun and a great outreach to the community.

Photos are below the video. Enjoy!
