MLB Could Start Using Robot Umpires by 2024

The Verge reports that MLB Commissioner Rob Manfred recently told ESPN that the league intends to soon introduce robot umpires to the game. Known as the "Automated Ball-Strike System," Manfred hopes the technology will speed up games. It's not yet known if the MLB will use the fully-automated version of the system or if it will be used more as a review system such as the Hawk-Eye is used in tennis.
