Robot Umpires (or at least their tech-savvy human counterparts)
Excellent piece by Ben Lindbergh from Grantland on the continued evolution of technology and umpiring. I'm keen to the idea mentioned of enabling umpires with real-time feedback from PitchF/X. The home plate umpire would retain final say on balls and strikes along with the full suite of other responsibilities they handle. Any other views?
Also included, a link to the scientific study demonstrating the accuracy of PitchF/X (which some here have questioned).
