By Murphy’s law, there’s no way a foul ball fails to hit one of these cameras or their cables in a big spot. Plus, it sounds like they’re only going to test it with a few games this weekend, so there isn’t going to be a lot of time in lab first.
I know they use these cameras in the NFL, but in the NFL you have a pretty good idea where the football is going to be and what direction it’s going to move in. Less so with baseballs, which are fouled off in every direction.
I don’t know. Maybe I’m being a Luddite, but this sounds like a bad idea.
