Major League Baseball has expressed their openness toward expanding replay for the 2012 season to include trapped balls and fair-or-foul rulings down the lines. Odds.
Baseball began using replay late in the 2008 season, though only to check potential home run balls. The other major leagues in other national sports such as the NFL, NBA, NHL and the NCAA have already included instant replay in their programs. Since then, there has been an epidemic of missed calls in the playoffs and World Series.
Last fall, Yankees right fielder Greg Golson clearly caught a low liner for the final out of Game 1 in New York’s playoff series against Minnesota Twins, but the referee ruled the ball bounced. In the 2009 AL playoffs, Joe Mauer’s looper down the left-field line landed fair by a full foot at Yankee Stadium, jumped into the seats and was incorrectly called a foul ball. Scores.
Some players had several things to say about this issue. “To have those guys go back and look at replay for everything, it would be just too long unless they had a signal from upstairs and hit a button.” Chone Figgins, Mariners third baseman thought.
Other such as Tigers catcher Alex Avila had something to express too: “Honestly, if they didn’t have replay at all, that wouldn’t bother me”, he said without caring too much about the subject.
Giants’ first baseman Aubrey Huff didn’t want technology to take part of the game either: “You’re messing with the history of the game when you start messing with too much.”
Now it’s up to the MLB, although technology should be exploited in these cases when sports and championships are on the line. The critical calls can be written off and fairness should rule with the use of instant replays to check doubtful plays. Las Vegas odds.
