Report: MLB to study replay at World Baseball Classic

Major League Baseball plans on sending officials to the World Baseball Classic this month to look at options on expanding instant replay, reports ESPN.com.

Officials want to look at specific camera angles, determine how long it takes for replay to decide close plays and see how long it takes to review certain calls.

MLB withdrew plans to limit reviews to fair/foul and trap/catch calls.

MLB is still in the early stages of exploring which calls to review and the format under which to review them. And commissioner Bud Selig conceded recently that the sport has run out of time to implement any changes before Opening Day. However, a vast expansion of replay is now widely viewed within baseball circles as being likely for next season. And some officials haven't given up hope on implementing some changes as early as midseason this year, though that is viewed as a long shot.
