Major League Baseball executive vice president Joe Torre said something interesting Sunday night.
Torre is "hopeful" that baseball’s expanded instant-replay system will be ready next season.
“We’re not totally ready yet. We’re getting closer and closer,” Torre told reporters before game three of the Dodgers-Braves series in Los Angeles. “I’m pretty hopeful we'll have it set for next year.”
The plan calls for managers to have one challenge during the first six innings of a game and two from the seventh inning until conclusion. If a manager wins a challenge, he will retain it. Challenged calls would be settled at MLB headquarters in New York after replays are viewed.
Balls and strikes would not be reviewable.
