NEW YORK (AP) -- Instant replay might soon be coming to Major
League Baseball. Moving faster than expected and coming after a
rash of blown calls, baseball wants to put replay into effect by
August for home run disputes in hopes of fine-tuning the system by
MLB and the umpires' union need to reach agreement before replay
can be tried, and the sides have started talking. Previously, it was thought replay would get its first look in the Arizona Fall League and then the 2009 World Baseball Classic. Baseball spokesman Rich Levin calls talk of a decision coming soon, "still premature."
