Put that in a database.
Votto comes to plate, the low mark and high mark strikezone are automatically set.
You'd only need a way to make sure the players didn't cheat during the measuring session.. Maybe have them hit against a pitching machine in spring training 15 times with sensors on their uniform..
The nice thing about this is that the player would have the exact same strikezone for the entire year.
Some guys, like Cal Ripken, always tinker with their stances. Just saying.
Talent is God Given: be humble.
Fame is man given: be thankful.
Conceit is self given: be careful.
