Overturned! Rays Prospect Part Of First Instant Replay Reversal

The Tampa Bay Rays are a part of history when it comes to instant replay in major league baseball (video here). Now they have a footnote in history in regards to expanded instant replay that is being put to the test during play in the Arizona Fall League.

The first ever reversal of the test system involves Rays prospect Ryan Brett playing for the Salt River Rafters against the Scottsdale Scorpions. In the top of the first inning the Rafters attempted a double steal and Brett was called out attempting to steal second base. Rafters manager Mike Shildt came out of the dugout to protest the call and after a brief review lasting less than a minute the play was overturned.

I am a fan of all sports but am most passionate about baseball. From the fanatical to analytical, nothing about the game escapes me. Being born and raised in Northeast Ohio I'm very familiar with the heartache and pain that sports can bring and hope that I bring some understanding of the other side to my coverage. I will focus mostly on baseball but also cover the Tampa Bay Lightning, one of the most electric franchises in all of sports. Always willing to converse about any sport and have only one rule and that is be respectful at all times.
