I wonder if the umps are alerted to the violations or if they're going to be keeping track of it themselves. I see a future of game threads chock full of "The clock hit double zero!!!" exclamations, much like when a center snaps the ball at zero.It's not that I'm worried that hitters won't get used to it. It's that the call is so subjective. I look forward to the first time a third strike is called because the ump doesn't think the batter is focused enough on the pitcher.
