LA Times writes: "Boston Red Sox second baseman Dustin Pedroia strides to the plate and begins his ritual.
Tap the bat twice on the ground. Circle it overhead. Adjust the gloves. Stand straight, bat upright, awaiting the pitch.
Pedroia is in a Sony Corp. studio in San Diego, suited up in a spandex bodysuit studded with 55 white sensors. Cameras capture his every move and send the data to powerful computers so engineers can bring him to life in MLB 2009 the Show, for the company's PlayStation video game consoles."
