I can't wait for automated ball/strike calls!  But whoever is setting up the strike zone needs to read the rule book and apply it accurately when setting up the boundaries.  I'm tired of watching MLB "K Zone" boxes that are well below where the rule book says the upper limit of the zone is.  Who is responsible for doing that?

Either implement the rule as written or, if supposedly everyone (other than me) wants it changed, change it.  After all, it has been changed from time to time over the decades.  It's not like we're monkeying with something from 1905.

Basically the mlb zone de facto ends a hand width above the belly button, nobody really calls mid point of the upper body 

Seems like (IMHO) when watching MLB games and even down to some high school games, the belt high fastball rarely gets called a strike much less above the belt.  I agree with Midlo either get the upper limit right or change it to what is actually being called.
