This is a follow-on to discussions about computerized ball-strike calls.
Hypothetically, suppose setting a strike zone customized to each player’s dimensions proves troublesome. What might be the effects on the game of the following:
A completely fixed strike zone, the same for every player, every at bat. Top and bottom are each a defined distance above home plate (chosen to be approximately the average of current strike zones).
A strike zone of a defined height, with its bottom defined by the player’s kneecaps, as at present. (Presuming the automatic system could easily spot the player’s knees.)
