Expanded Instant Replay Approved For 2014

Major League Baseball owners have voted to expand instant replay in 2014 and has unanimously voted to approve the change for next season. Obviously the Umpire's union and the Player's Union have to agree and sign off on it but that is expected to happen without a hiccup.

Each manager will be given two challenges to use at any point in the game, much like the NFL has, and are only lost if the challenge is lost, again just like the NFL. The play will be ruled off the field and the decision will be relayed to umpires on the field to make the call which I like. Obviously balls and strikes cannot be argued or challenged and home run calls will still be handled by the umpires like they have sine 2008.
