However, commissioner Bud Selig did say that, while he is taking no action on the call today, he does plan on evaluating the possibility of expanding the use of instant replay, according to Darren Rovell.

Selig makes no immediate call: “I will examine our umpiring system, the expanded use of instant replay and all other related features.”

Selig said he would make his decision after consulting with the owners, the Players Union and the Special Committee for On-Field Matters, according to Rovell.
