NEW YORK (WFAN) — Major League Baseball vice president of operations Joe Torre says the league is “very close” to nailing down a system for expanded instant replay.
During an interview Thursday on WFAN radio, Torre said replay — currently in place for home runs — won’t be available for every call under the to-be-determined new rules. MLB owners are expected to vote on expanded replay during their meetings in November.
“We’re very close,” Torre told WFAN’s Joe Benigno and Evan Roberts. “We just still have to figure out what the process is going to be and what the trigger is going to be for sure.”
There was a lot of talk this summer about the trigger being an NFL-style challenge, where managers would receive a certain number of opportunities to correct a call during a game.
