There is a task at hand:. To determine if a sphere, traveling at high speeds has traversed a certain physical space.
Humans have performed this task, since basically they were best and only alternative.
They were trained and selected (eyesight)...
Lets face it...its not easy. Given the task, umps do a pretty decent job.
We now have the option of machines that could perform this task with a much higher degree of accuracy.
I have a hard time thinking why we shouldn't consider it.
It's a GAME.
This is the time. The real Reds organization is back.
