Video: Home plate umpire wears point-of-view camera for documentary

Sure, we've all sat at home (or in the stands) watching a baseball game and let the home plate umpire have it for his poor recognition of balls and strikes. But what's it like to experience such first hand? That's not a perspective many of us have shared - until now.

Minnesota Twins star prospect Miguel Sano is currently starting in a documentary focused on his trials and tribulations through minor league baseball which included the following clip sharing an at-bat with us from the perspective of the home plate umpire.

The idea is that production will remain with Sano until he makes his Major League debut, but in the meantime film makers have been documenting every step along the way - including this unique view from behind the dish.

So what do you think? Easier to call balls and strikes than you would have thought? Or more difficult?
