Fukuoka SoftBank Hawks use dancing robots as cheerleaders in an NPB baseball match due to the absence of fans in the stadium

The Coronavirus pandemic has put a large number of restrictions in our daily lives. It has been a difficult phase for all of us since March. One of the restrictions includes banning fans from going inside the stadium to watch a match.

One of the most successful Japanese baseball teams, Fukuoka SoftBank Hawks came up with a creative idea to cheer and motivate their players in their Nippon Professional Baseball (NPB) match against Rakuten Eagles on Tuesday.

They deployed dancing robots as cheerleaders. There were 2 types of robots around 20 in total, who danced to the team’s songs on the podium. Some of them wore Hawks caps and waved flags supporting the team.

The two types of robots which were used are:

  • Spot by Boston Dynamics
  • Pepper by Softbank Robotics

Fukuoka SoftBank Hawks won the baseball 4-3 as they look to defend their 2019 NPB title. It seems the dancing robots were successful to boost the morals of the players.

From Friday, up to 5,000 fans will be allowed inside the stadium to attend professional baseball and soccer games in Japan due to an easing of COVID-19 restrictions. But it looks like this idea of using dancing robots in the stadium will be a massive hit throughout the world until the fans can be allowed in every part of the world.
