Selig: No need for more MLB replay for now



DE PERE, Wis. (AP) — Baseball Commissioner Bud Selig says he doesn’t think more TV replay is needed, at least not right now.

Selig spoke a small group Wednesday at a sport and society conference at St. Norbert College in De Pere, Wis.

Previously reluctant to add replay, Selig instituted it during the 2008 season for home run calls. Last fall, he told a Dallas radio station that Major League Baseball was planning to expand its use of replay but that didn’t happen.

Expanded replay to cover fair-or-foul calls, trapped balls and fan interference instead might be instituted in 2013. Additional replay requires the approval of MLB and the unions representing the umpires and the players.
