Computers calling balls/strikes in MLB

Recommended Posts

Under the just signed labor contract between MLB and the Umpire's Union, the use of computers to call balls/strikes can be implemented at some point in the next five years!

It is just saying that over the course of this agreement, that the MLBUA will assist with the development of the system. Not that the system WILL be implemented in MLB.

Do a search for "computerized strike zone in mlb" and just about every article says the system will be "in use" in the next five years.

Why put it in the union contract if they don't plan on implementing it?
