The Instant Replay Insertion Into MLB
- Updated: August 22, 2008
Now before I go on, please don’t get me wrong, I’m for Instant Replay for the right scenarios, but I am not sold that inserting it in the middle of a season is the best idea the Commissioner’s office ever came up with.
Using Instant Replay to aid in the proper calling of Home Runs dealing with fans touching the ball or hitting a foul pole or judging if it’s fair or foul, in my opinion, is a good idea. I just don’t want to see it get abused or used as a springboard for uses it was not meant to be designed for, whatever that future idea may be. What are your thoughts on this idea? What would be OK or not OK for use in the MLB?
I wrote about the possibility of using Instant Replay in MLB games back in February, to read what I had to say back then, click HERE.
The Commissioner’s Office and MLB umpires have come to an agreement this week to allow the use of Instand Replay during this 2008 season. For more details on this developement, please check out what ESPN has reported by clicking HERE.
