    Why not? After all, baseball is a thinking man’s—er, robot’s—game.

    Maybe they use mechanical balls and bats.

    You will a be low complexity and real-time nature of the calculations necessary to detect a thrown baseball predicted trajectory and to swing a bat in such a manner as to intersect that trajectory over the plate of a baseball game (in a very limited time, from the pitch to the catchers mit is less than two seconds), I doubt that there is any computer system currently available which we do let alone a portable robotic system. Then there is the problems with developing a robot which could run the bases. and also field the hit balls (more real time calculations). To make a baseball playing robot would make hitting an incoming ICBM seem easy in comparison Besides human players are just more entertaining….
