AP Newsbreak: No expanded replay in MLB this season for trapped balls and fair-or-four calls
NEW YORK (AP) ' Major League Baseball says expanded replay will have to wait at least another year.
Baseball had hoped to increase video reviews this season to include trapped balls, fair-or-foul calls down the lines and fan interference all around the ballpark.
The additional replay required the approval of MLB and the unions representing the umpires and the players. MLB executive Rob Manfred told The Associated Press on Tuesday that all three sides weren't able to come up with an agreement.
Rather than try to implement more replay in the middle of this season, the sides will work toward adding the extra looks for games in 2013.
Baseball began using replay late in the 2008 season to let umpires check potential home run balls.
