Torre: MLB To Expand Replay in 2014

[1]Major League Baseball is moving ahead with plans to expand instant replay next year.

“We’re pretty confident we’ll have it in place for 2014,” MLB Executive Vice President Joe Torre said Tuesday before the All-Star game.

Video review has been in place for umpires on home run calls since August 2008. Commissioner Bud Selig initially wanted to add trap plays and fair-or-foul calls down the lines for 2013, but the change was put off while more radical options were examined.

Part of a replay subcommittee that includes former St. Louis Cardinals manager Tony La Russa and Atlanta Braves President John Schuerholz, Torre has said all options are being considered, including an NFL-type system that would give managers the ability to challenge calls. He hopes to have plans for owners to consider when they meet next month in Cooperstown.
