Professional baseball is ready to test a computerized method for calling balls and strikes. The HawkEye system will be installed in nine stadiums in the Florida State League, when play resumes this summer, including the home park of Detroit’s affiliate, the Lakeland Flying Tigers. An umpire will still be stationed behind the plate, to call other plays, and to relay the calls made by the computer.
