Umpire's visual perspective of the pitches - video from NPB

Here's a pretty neat camera angle from NPB where they show you the pitch from the umpire's perspective:

Note - the second pitcher in this video (0:16) is our own Wei-Yin Chen. Unfortunately he's getting rocked for what appears to be a double to the gap and a single to right.

What a neat angle! I would love to see this angle as a more regular view on MASN broadcasts.

It's strange, that angle actually solves a lot of mysteries for me. It helps me understand how in the world these guys actually hit the ball. When they show a normal camera angle, you snap your fingers and the ball is in the catcher's mitt. It's like magic if the batter can hit it. But with this angle, it seems to slow it down so you can see a little about what the batter is thinking. I think it's due to seeing the pitch all the way through the pitcher's windup.
