Baseball Will Test Replay Systems at N.Y. Stadiums, ESPN Reports

Major League Baseball will test two replay systems at New York stadiums this month for possible future use in reviewing fair and foul balls, ESPN reported.

The “Hawkeye” system used in tennis will be tested at Citi Field during New York Mets games in September and on days off, while a radar-based system similar to those used to trace shots during pro golf events will be tested at Yankee Stadium, ESPN said, citing unidentified MLB officials.

An e-mail seeking comment from MLB spokesman Pat Courtney wasn’t immediately returned.

The systems also will be tested during the Arizona Fall League before being presented at major-league owners’ meetings, though there’s no timetable on deciding when or if to implement them, ESPN said.

The latest collective bargaining agreement between MLB and its players’ union allows for the implementation of replays for fair/foul calls and to determine whether a ball is caught or trapped. Baseball Commissioner Bud Selig has said he would like to expand replay as early as next season, ESPN said. Video reviews currently are used on home runs to determine if the ball cleared the wall, was fair or foul and whether there was fan interference.
