Will MLB finally institute replay review?

At last, it happened. The Yankees were the victims of not just one, but two blown calls in postseason games. Will that mean replay review? Um... maybe.


Passan: MLB Will Test Replay Systems Starting Next Week

Major League Baseball has been edging toward adding replay review to other calls besides the current system, which reviews home run calls.

Yahoo’s Jeff Passan reports that the edging will soon become actual testing:

Major League Baseball owners have agreed to test two different advanced replay systems live during games starting next week, and if they prove accurate they could precede an overhaul of the system for the 2013 season, sources told Yahoo! Sports.

MLB will analyze a radar-based system and a camera-based system, both similar to the one used in tennis for down-the-line fair-or-foul calls. Yankee Stadium and Citi Field will be the guinea-pig parks for the systems, which have been installed recently.

This is good news; it shows that baseball officials are actually taking serious steps toward adding review for more calls. Passan further reports that tests will occur on both game days and non-game days; they are, he says, trying to make sure such a system will be accurate.

That’s pretty much all those who are advocating for more replay review are asking for. The pace has been glacial, but it appears to be picking up.
