INDIAN WELLS, Calif. (AP) - Baseball is considering a broader expansion of video review for umpires than first discussed.
Instant replay in baseball began in August 2008 and has been limited to checking whether potential home runs were fair or cleared over fences. Major League Baseball Commissioner Bud Selig has been saying since early 2011 he wants to expand it to two additional types of calls.
``He was talking about really basically fair-foul, trap plays. But we're looking into more than that,'' Joe Torre, MLB's executive vice president for baseball operations, said Wednesday at the general managers' meetings.
MLB experimented with the Hawk-Eye animation system and the TrackMan radar software during tests late this year at Yankee Stadium and Citi Field.
