Re: Why we need computers calling balls and strikes
I'm all for locking in the strike zone in the rules, standardized, and having it called as precisely as possible according to that rule.
I just don't like artificial constraints put on a hitter. It's a living breathing sport and batters are constantly tweaking and adjusting their stances. It stands to to reason that the strike zone moves with how they are batting at that point in time, not how their stance was back in spring training or even the beginning of the series. A guy might have had a session with his hitting coach last night and found a flaw and made an adjustment. So he should be stuck with that out of date strike zone?
The sport should direct the technology, not the other was around.
Winter, spring, summer, or fall
All you have to do is call...
