Owners approve expansion of replay

ORLANDO — Major League Baseball owners today voted to fund the expansion of instant replay for 2014.

The exact system will be determined once negotiations are completed with the MLB Players Association and the umpires. But commissioner Bud Selig said there is no obstacle to a new system starting next season.

Baseball seems to be headed toward reviews being done in New York with managers having one or two challenges per game. Umpires could ask for a review of plays that aren’t challenged.
