If they are calling it 99% right, it probably wouldn't make a difference.
To be fair, the overall average is about 95% according to Major League Baseball, at least as graded by Pitch F/X (which in itself claims to be 99% accurate to "within an inch" but that accuracy assumes perfect calibration to its targets, which were tested in factory conditions with stationary targets). But the playoff year tested by ESPN found 99% for those games.
