    Exclusive: MLB to test two different advanced replay systems during games next week

    Major League Baseball owners have agreed to test two different advanced replay systems live during games starting next week, and if they prove accurate they could precede an overhaul of the system for the 2013 season, sources told Yahoo! Sports.

    MLB will analyze a radar-based system and a camera-based system, both similar to the one used in tennis for down-the-line fair-or-foul calls. Yankee Stadium and Citi Field will be the guinea-pig parks for the systems, which have been installed recently.

    The use of the systems will be strictly in the background and for analysis. Because the number of questionable plays during games is likely to be limited, MLB plans to do extra testing on non-game days. Before implementing the technology in its 30 ballparks, the league wants to ensure its accuracy is up to standard.

    The rest of the article can be found here.

    (I've posted this in the Citi Field and Yankee Stadium (II) threads as well. Please keep comments in this thread to general thoughts about the issue, and save ballpark-specific thoughts for the appropriate thread.)
    Please help. I was diagnosed with Stage 4 cancer last summer, and now I'm in a position where I need financial assistance. For the full story, please check out my GoFundMe campaign at Thank you.

    I'm all for instant replay. Human eye can not and never will catch everything. Especially a play that can change the outcome of a game.
