@thomas do you know that there's a program where the best players of Gran Turismo on the playstation become real race car drivers
These have been tonight's #scrapdates. Thanks for tuning in.
The rest of what the librarians sent me, while fascinating robotics work, is not necessarily pertinent to one Mr. Scraps nor to his provenance.
I am still working the UW comms department for any additional photo or text documentation, though the data I received tonight has opened up a new vector.
So tomorrow, I'll be writing to Professor Albrecht, creator and architect fo Mr. Scraps.
Professor Albrecht is very much alive.
What you're looking at here may be the only extant photo of Mr. Scraps actually presenting the ball to Mr. Doohan, presented in the best quality I can obtain.
This comes from a 2004 publication called the "Electrical Engineering Kaleidoscope," published to celebrate the centennial of UW's engineering department.
But let's get to what they DID find.
As I previously said, there appears to be no video of Mr. Scraps actually serving the ball to Mr. Doohan. HOWEVER! there IS official MLB video recapping the night itself that the librarian linked me, and here is a little under four seconds of our boy himself scooting across the field AFTER the first pitch has been lobbed.
Yes I made this gif myself.
I am from Toronto and I am sorry
