I hear you all about the importance of getting with it technology-wise but let's go and get a move on. They have been playing ball and hitting the Rock with a Dinosaur Bone for a long time and it worked out fine. Why mess with the way it was? The human factor makes it more fun. Even when the call goes against the team I'm for. That's life.

How are they going to institute these updates into games for the young kids? They are not going to like not having the same computer making calls that their heroes have. Whatever it's only Baseball not Rocket Science.

Robot Umpires, as they are called, are already in use in minor league games. Umpires have a earpiece that will tell them strike or ball and they simply make the verbal call. The umpire is also there for plays at the plate, foul tips, fair or foul balls, balks, check swings, and anything that requires a human response. The system is called ABS (Automated Ball-Strike System) and is implemented by Trackman.

Robot umpires will continue to be used in Atlantic League for remainder of 2019 season - CBSSports.com

Thanks for some great links.

For a guy that started with stickball and worked up, I am amazed and thrilled at the progression of the game. I rejected analytics at first, now getting it. Speeding the game and accuracy is great.

I secretly will still check the old time stats, but boy I have learned to appreciate the new way the last two years.

Seeing and appreciating how the new way has helped develop young players is exciting.

I know this thread is based on the "lack of home field advantage" in this series, but I really am impressed on how analytics are used in the player development now. Great game...always has been and remains.
