Now it’s official — expanded instant replay is coming to Major League Baseball.
So long, arguments with umpires.
VIA @MLB_PR on Twitter, the following types of plays are subject to review:
- Home run
- Ground run double
- Fan interference
- Stadium boundary calls
- Force play
- Tag play
- Fair/foul in outfield only
- Trap play in outfield only
- Batter hit by pitch
- Timing play
- Touching a base
- Passing runners
- Record keeping
Managers will receive two challenges per game on the plays above.
