NEW YORK (AP) -- Major League Baseball will begin a limited use
of instant replay starting with three series that begin Thursday.
Commissioner Bud Selig announced the plan during a conference
call. Replay will be in effect for all games that are played
The introduction of replay comes nearly 10 months after general
managers voted 25-5 to use the technology, and follows agreements
with the unions for umpires and for players.
Initially video will be used only on so-called "boundary
calls," such as determining whether fly balls went over the fence
or whether potential home runs were fair or foul.
