Upon Further Review; MLB Considering Replay

For the first time, baseball general managers are recommending instant replay be used to help umpires make close calls.

The GMs voted 25-to-5 in favor of a measure that would limit replay to boundary calls. They could review whether potential home runs are fair or foul, whether balls go over fences or hit the top and bounce back, and whether fans have interfered with a possible homer.

Baseball commissioner Bud Selig opposes the use of replays but said last month he was willing to let GMs examine the issue. Selig doesn't like replays because of the delays involved and the fact that it, in his words, "creates as many problems or more than it solves."
