Not that the umps use it, but isn't the strike zone a three-dimensional space?
1988 - "The Strike Zone is that area over home plate
the upper limit of which is a horizontal line at the midpoint between the top of the shoulders and the top of the uniform pants, and the lower level is a line at the top of the knees. The Strike Zone shall be determined from the batter's stance as the batter is prepared to swing at a pitched ball."
1996 - The Strike Zone is expanded on the lower end, moving from the top of the knees to the bottom of the knees.
