Legos to the Rescue

A couple of interesting tidbits this morning.

  • A co-worker sent me this link from the local Colorado Springs paper. Teenager Cameron Kruse, who works as a Sky Sox ball boy, built a machine to rub down baseballs in a uniform way. There's also a nice video on YouTube and although it doesn't mention it in the article, he might have used Lego Mindstorms for the programming.

  • Clay Davenport looks a little deeper into the number of minor league innings rookie pitchers have logged over time. The analysis is still incomplete but is suggestive that perhaps the number of innings accumulated in the minor leagues hasn't declined as has recently been discussed.
