Bud Selig has no plans to expand replay, but his Little League counterparts have voted to revise their replay system to “include more plays, including force outs, tags on base paths, missed bases, and hit batters.”
Here’s more from the Associated Press:
Umpires will still have the option to call for a replay, though managers will now be allowed to challenge calls or request a replay if umpires don’t ask for one. Managers would be limited to one unsuccessful replay challenge in the first six innings, and one unsuccessful challenge in extra innings. A replay team–an umpire who is not on the field and a Little League official–would review up to 12 camera angles provided by ESPN and decide whether to reverse the call.
The new system will be instituted when this year’s Little League World Series begins on August 20.
