    Interesting idea, but I'm sure its going to be hard for an ump who has known nothing but reaction after the ball hits the mitt to call ball or strike and have to wait to listen for what the pitch actually is. I have a feeling something like that could be a disaster with an ump calling a ball that he sees, and the computer saying it was a strike.

    I think that this should all be automated and the plate should be increased by 2-3 inches.

    This is laughable.
