St. Louis Cardinals Adopt the Pitching Pad - PR.com

... Interesting, for a few seconds, but this piece is really just a "spamafied" advertisement for a product which amounts to what we used to call a strikeout box. At least, that's what their description makes it sound like. I wonder how much it cost for these products?

I'll bet I could do the same thing with an old mattress and some spray paint.

St. Louis Cardinals Adopt the Pitching Pad - PR.com: "On September 12, two Pitching Pads found a new home at the St. Louis Cardinals minor league complex in Jupiter, Florida. The Pitching Pads are located at Roger Dean Stadium for the fall instructional league.

Minor League pitching coordinator Brent Strom wanted to make sure that the Cardinals have all the available tools to improve their performance."
