Report: Instant replay could be tested in the AFL


Last winter during the GM meetings, the General Mangers voted 25-5 to recommend that MLB implement some form of instant replay. The recommendation was non-binding and has sat on the Commissioner’s desk, largely ignored, since then. Now, however, three wrong calls over a span of four days has forced Bud Selig’s hand, and according to reports, Major League Baseball will test some implementation of instant replay review for only home run calls during the Arizona Fall League this year. Better late than never, I guess. I do think that the jump from the AFL to MLB is a rather significant one though that can’t be ignored.
