2014 will bring expanded use of Instant Replay



      Bud Selig has announced that MLB will expand its use of instant replay in the 2014 season. Managers can now inform the umpires that he wants to challenge a play. Like in football, the umpires have to come together and review the video on the play. If the call is overturned, the manager retains his challenge.

     Each team receives one challenge before the seventh inning, and two more after the seventh. The challenge before the seventh inning can not be used after the seventh. Most plays will be challenge-able, but some (10-15%) will not.
