MLB plans to expand instant replay

According to Major League Baseball Commissioner Bud Selig, the MLB plans to expand instant review come 2014. The expansion of the video review process will give managers the chance to cut down on the amount of incorrect calls made in games.

The announcement comes two days after Selig met with reps from the 30 teams around the league. Owners will vote on the proposition in November.

75 percent of owners must vote yes for the approval. The players' association and unpires would also have to agree to the changes of the current system.

One challenge will be granted to managers over the first six innings of a game and two from the seventh inning on. The MLB headquarters in New York City will review the challenge and make the final ruling. Only reviewable plays can be challenged. The Major Leagues expect to use the new system by the 2014 playoffs.
