In place is a pretty vague term.
Has it been tested in a game?
On different batters or is it just a three dimensional box that sits in the same place for every hitter?
Software is a very volatile item, hardware is prone to breaking down and malfunctioning and giving out bad data.
Talking about instituting a computer based strikes/ball tool is one thing implementing one is likely a far cry form "in place" when you want to use it to replace umpires.
Sure the technology is richer than ever before, but saying "it's in place" is at best a inaccurate statement... one might say it's almost a wild pitch.
