Let's enjoy virtual batting with pro pitchers!
-- The 1st renewed version in 9 years --
The photo shows the virtual batting in action. The pitcher winds up in the screen and pitches his ball to the doll catcher squatting in the back of the plate.
When the batter swings his or her bat just in time, a keen batting sound is heard from above. If the batter misses the ball, a deep sound comes up from the doll catcher to show that the ball is right in the catcher's mitt.
All of the pitchers you bat against were selected to the 2009 All-Star Game Series and pitched in the first game at Sapporo Dome on July 24, 2009.
