Sport Vector Machines Plate Z

How is it possible values in Plate Z are below 0.

Plate Z = how high the pitch was above the ground.

Does negative values mean that the pitch went below ground?

Thats weird. I’ve seen pitches hit the ground but not go below it.

I was also trying to understand this point… Maybe, the ball hit the ground but before arriving home…
or a second alternative the projection of the impact in the home area would be below the ground, indeed impacted the ground not below but the projection indicates that the impact (without the limit of the ground) will occur below zero level.
Anyway it is a tricky ball…
