WASHINGTON (AP) -- Major league ballparks are being wired for
instant replay, and commissioner Bud Selig says his "confidence is
growing" that the technology to assist umpires will be ready soon.

"I want to make sure that if and when we do it, it's really
good, it's perfect," Selig said at the conclusion of a two-day
owners' meeting. "It'll be very limited. I want to make sure, and
I'm not quite certain yet. But we should have answers very
shortly."

Selig said he has visited the so-called "war room" in New York
where officials would review video feeds of disputed home runs. The
NHL has a similar setup in Toronto.
