MILWAUKEE (WTAQ) - Give that robot a contract.
That's what Brewer fans might say, after a robot made by high school students throws out the first pitch at Saturday night's Milwaukee-St. Louis game at Miller Park.
26 members of the robotics team at Glendale Nicolet High School made the robot, called "Robot Yount."
It's supposed to throw a perfectly-calibrated 65 mile an hour pitch right over the plate.
Nicolet teacher Adam Thiel says it throws a strong sinker -- although the pitch is not nearly as fast as the 100 mile an hour heaters that some guys throw.
Thiel started Nicolet's robotics program 5 years ago. There are now about 30 schools throughout Wisconsin that have robotics teams.
