Major league baseball to expand instant replay
GLENDALE, Ariz. -- Major League Baseball intends to expand the use of instant replay for the 2014 season, and will be studying which calls to review and how to do it over the course of this year.
Joe Torre, an MLB executive vice president, said Tuesday that league officials plan to visit Miami during the World Baseball Classic and various spring training sites to examine camera angles and other factors that will help them develop a plan.
Commissioner Bud Selig has said he wants to add video reviews for trapped balls and fair-or-foul calls.
Torre said the league is mainly “looking at is some of the obvious stuff you can see right away,” but that it’s a balancing act to make sure replay doesn’t interrupt the flow of the game.
Torre also shot down any notion that balls and strikes will be reviewed, joking that “you still have to have something to yell about.”
