Major League Baseball has reversed its
long-standing opposition to instant replay and will allow umpires
to check video on home run calls in series that start Thursday, a
person familiar with the announcement told The Associated Press.
The person spoke on condition of anonymity because no
announcement was authorized before 5 p.m. Tuesday EDT.
The start date comes nearly 10 months after general managers
voted 25-5 to use the technology, and following MLB agreements with
the unions for umpires and for players.
