How important is the human element in baseball? Research from Boston University says that it might be time to call in the robo-umps. According to their data, last year umpires called 34,294 “incorrect ball and strike calls for an average of 14 per game and 1.6 per inning.” Adding insult to injury, they found that 55 games actually endedon an incorrectly called pitch.
