Korea’s Hanwha Eagles have robots for fans who can’t attend

Across lots of land and water in South Korea, the Hanwha Eagles (former team of Hyun-Jin Ryu) have gone “next level” by providing robots to stomp and yell unifying chants for those who cannot attend the game in person….

In any event, this sentence—“At important moments, the Fanbot encourages group cheering”—is the most creepily utopian baseball-related sequencing of words ever uttered. May it one adorn the flag of every formerly sovereign nation on earth.

Let us now look forward to being mauled at a urinal by one of these.

Best Fanbots in Baseball.
