A Robot Helped A Kid With Severe Aplastic Anemia Throw Out The First Pitch At An A’s Game

This manages to be weird, cool and touching all at the same time. Nick LeGrande, a kid with severe aplastic anemia, was able to throw out the first pitch at an Oakland Athletics game from 1,800 miles away with the help of a robot. An absolute must-see. And the kid’s got good form! (h/t to Bob’s Blitz)
