Behold the Future

The next generation in watching a baseball game is here. Nintendo has introduced a wireless service fans can access with their Nintendo DS systems at Safeco Field that provides stats, scores, video highlights, radio coverage, food and beverage service and more. The most interesting feature is "Pitch Effect, which allows viewers to see the trajectory of each pitch and get information on the speed and placement of each ball thrown."

Imagine the possibilities with that one. If I was a manager, I'd have that in my dugout. When an ump blew a call, I'd take it out there to the plate and stick it in his face. How could he deny he botched it?

Seems like a no-brainer to create a fantasy feature. Or at least make it Internet-compatible, so you can check your league online.


The DS is really a cool little device. I like those Brain Age games...

Fantastic idea.

They should allow that technology to be accessed by cell phones and Pocket PCs as well. Great idea.

Damn this sucks w/o "24" this year.
