Hexbin Scatterplot

The hexbin scatterplot for Power BI is a variation on a traditional scatterplot that involves clustering points onto a uniform grid of hexagons. Rather than relying on size to indicate differences in values like a bubble chart, the hexbin plot instead uses variation in bin color similar to a heat map. A higher saturation or darker color indicates higher density when working with two measures. A third measure can be added so that the plot colors change from indicating point density to instead encoding the value of the third measure. Bin radius can also be adjusted.

I'm using this with pitchfx to display a heatmap of pitch location.  Is there any way to display a strike zone?  I have cooridnates of the strike zone for each batter or I could use an image as a default background if that would work.  Thanks!
