Video Umpires

Students play umpire in a baseball game. They video the umpire's calls and then examine the accuracy of a "line call" when compared to a taped record of a ball's exact impact location. They create a transcript of a fictional court case where the umpire is accused of an error. Students determine if electronic umpires can replace the human ones.
