If it's a strike in baseball, all major league pitchers will sign up to have a robot referee from here on out.
The Atlantic League has been used by the MLB to test several things that include a robot umpire, which still needs to solve some problems that were on display during a recent game that had the worst blow 3 in baseball history.
During a game of York Revolution / High Point Rockets, a batter was summoned in strikes from a pitch that was very close to his head. The batter was clearly upset about that as he walked away from the batter's box.
Because the system is still in its infancy, an arbiter is needed behind the house in case the system does not achieve a tone, register a tone totally incorrectly or fail completely.
The program used the players' data to formulate an attack zone for each batter, but due to the lack of information available to the system, a generic 6-foot-2 attack zone was implemented.
