The Automatic Balls and Strikes system, commonly referred to as ABS, will be deployed in two different ways. Half of the Class AAA games will be played with all of the calls determined by an electronic strike zone, and the other half will be played with an ABS challenge system similar to that used in professional tennis.

In 2019, the independent Atlantic League used the electronic strike zone in an all-star game, and that same year, the Arizona Fall League was played with the ABS. In 2021, the ABS was deployed in some Class A parks. Last season, the full ABS was used for some Class AAA games.

If MLB were to commit to electronic strike zone calls for all pitches, it would dramatically change the position of catcher, which for generations has been inhabited by players who have mastered defensive nuances -- receiving the ball effectively, pitch presentation and conversational advocacy with the umpires -- that would become all but obsolete under an ABS. With a full ABS, catchers would really be required only to block balls in the dirt and throw. Additionally, the umpires would have one of their primary responsibilities stripped away completely if MLB shifted to an electronic strike zone.

At the winter meetings, MLB general managers were also briefed on the ongoing efforts to shape the strike zone in a way that is more conducive for action. In the season ahead, there will be more focus on lowering the top of the strike zone -- an area in which many pitchers have contributed to the record rate of strikeouts -- and calling strikes within the 17-inch horizontal plane above home plate.

Data analysis tracked the frequency with which MLB batters swung at pitches outside of the strike zone during the 2012 season. Data were sorted by month for all 30 teams and compared between the first and last month of the season. Data for each team also were compared to a statistical model, based on data from the 2006 to 2011 seasons, which predicts a linear decline in strike-zone judgment per month.

The idea of framing pitches is that the catcher is tryingto ensure that taken pitches in the strike zone are called strikes andattempting to get called strikes on pitches thrown out of the strike zone througha variety of means (pre-pitch body positioning, subtle body movements uponcatching the pitch, or keeping the body and glove still when catching thepitch).

Baseball is not about swinging at every single pitch, so if you want to hit the ball better in MLB The Show 23 then you're going to need to learn about plate discipline. Regardless of which hitting interface you're using, don't get caught swinging wildly at every ball that comes your way. If you're using Zone hitting, sometimes it can be best to put your PCI in a spot you feel comfortable with and wait until the ball comes towards it; you'll miss out on some good pitches this way, but you'll have a much better chance of crushing the ball when you get your pitch. Alternatively, you can focus on a particular half of the strike zone. Pushing the L3 button and using the PCI Anchor can help you to reposition the neutral point of your PCI to make this strategy easier to execute.

To follow on from the above, the game of baseball is effectively a mental battle between the pitcher and the batter. If you're swinging wildly at every single pitch, then the pitcher's confidence is going to increase, meaning they'll be more readily able to locate the strike zone and get you behind in the count. Similarly, the pitcher is also preserving their energy, because they're not having to throw many pitches during each at bat.

If you lay off on pitches, however, and the pitcher misses the strike zone, then their confidence will drop. As they begin to fall behind in the count, the pressure will increase, opening them up to mistakes. Similarly, if they're going deep into the count during each at bat, they're going to tire quicker, benefitting you later in the game as the pitcher throws weaker pitches. You want to force your opponent to dip into their bullpen, because their relief pitchers are unlikely to have the same skillset as their starting pitchers.

One of the features first introduced in MLB The Show 21 and returning in MLB The Show 23 is designed around making you the best possible player you can be. Custom Practice allows you to design your own unique training scenarios so that you can get better at hitting the ball. If you're new to the game and you're not sure what your weak spots are, then we'd recommend fielding some fastballs thrown right at the centre of the strike zone. This will help you to hone in on your timing.

This led to the American Association defining such a zone for the first time. The rule stated that the pitch must be delivered at the height called for by the batter. If at such height it passed over any part of the plate and the batter failed to swing the bat, it was a strike.

In 1996, the baseball strike zone was redefined. The lower zone was expanded to the hollow beneath the kneecap. The upper part was defined from the midpoint between the top of the shoulders to the top of the uniform pants. The lower part was defined from the top of the knees to the hollow below the kneecap.

Umpires make correct judgment for 99.5% of baseball games. However, there are many instances where errors occur in judging the strike zone. According to a 2018 study by Boston University, umpires made 34,294 wrong calls of strikes and balls. It is an average of 14 wrong calls per game.

Playing effectively in the strike zone and passing good judgment has much to do with being comfortable on the field. If you are not comfortable you cannot perform well. Your mind and body have to be involved in the game for a better performance.

BRIDGEWATER, New Jersey -- When Major League Baseball first announced its experiment with the electronic strike zone in the Atlantic League, an eight-team independent professional baseball league, the news was met with skepticism. But the implementation of the automated ball-strike system was also accompanied with a bit of intrigue.

At the end of July, it was announced that robot umpires would continue to be used in the Atlantic League for the remainder of the 2019 season. So with a little less than a month left in the Atlantic League's regular season, I watched the electronic strike zone get put to use once again during a game between the Somerset Patriots and Southern Maryland Blue Crabs at TD Bank Ballpark in Bridgewater, New Jersey. Here's how it worked.

TrackMan, or "robot ump," sits up above home plate (at all eight Atlantic League ballparks), and looks like a black box from afar. In reality, the box is a 3-D Doppler radar dish that analyzes each pitch thrown. Using a three-dimensional strike zone, TrackMan is able to calibrate each batters' size and stance, adjusting the strike zone accordingly. So, the system works so that it doesn't allow a 6-foot-7 player to have the same strike zone as a 5-foot-7 player.

All the while, up in the press box sits a TrackMan tech crew sent by MLB. They man the equipment: A laptop, which shows the strike zone graphic for each batter, adjusting ever so slightly to the specific height and stance. In terms of what the TrackMan software looks like, it's awfully similar to the GameTracker appearance seen when following along with a game online.

That's not to say the system hasn't experienced glitches, or guarantees that it won't during the continuation of its experimental phase. There's still a lot of work that needs to be done as far as the consistency for the strike zone across the different Atlantic League ballparks as well as making sure the connection between the TrackMan software and the umpire's iPhone and earpiece stays strong for the entire game.

TrackMan obviously affects everyone involved on a baseball team, but how has it been for the umpires? Many of which have had to essentially tweak their entire career and approach to calling balls and strikes. After initially being taken aback by the news of an electronic strike zone, Atlantic League umpire Freddie DeJesus now recognizes its game-changing potential.

Those who are anti-electronic strike zone argue that, by using a machine, it's removing a human element from the game. They'll be less manager-umpire or player-umpire banter since the umpire won't technically be responsible for the strike zone. Dodgers manager Dave Roberts acknowledged that the human element is a clear part of the game of baseball, but "the part of getting it right outweighs it a little bit," he said on "The Rich Eisen Show."

Somerset Patriots starts-leader, right-hander Liam O'Sullivan put it as elementary as this: "If you can get the strike zone to a place where everybody knows what the strike zone is and it's consistent throughout, then it's tough to say that it's not good for the game."

The electronic strike zone will be used in all 30 Triple-A stadiums for the 2023 season, according to an ESPN report. The move is seen as a major step toward the technology soon being utilized at the highest level of the sport.

Half of the Triple-A games this year will be played with all of the calls determined by an electronic strike zone; the other half with the Automatic Balls and Strikes (ABS) challenge system similar to what is used in pro tennis, per ESPN. 041b061a72
