Rob Manfred Said Robot Umpires Will Likely Be Introduced in 2024

Robot umpires are coming to Major League Baseball according to Rob Manfred.

On Wednesday, baseball fans were given hope on the future of umpires and officiating in the MLB. ESPN’s Don Van Natta Jr. spoke to MLB commissioner Manfred for a lengthy interview, detailing some important points of interest for baseball fans.

The biggest note of them all was the likely implementation in 2024 of an automated ball-strike zone system, commonly known as robot umpires, according to Manfred. It’s no secret that the MLB’s umpires make a lot of controversial calls and the introduction of a robot umpire system would help alleviate the issue.
