NEW YORK, NY (WTVB) - Major League Baseball commissioner Bud Selig announced Thursday at the quarterly Owner's Meetings that Major League Baseball plans to expand instant replay beginning in next season. For the first time, managers would have the opportunity to challenge an umpire's call. They will be allowed one challenge over the first six innings and two from the seventh inning until the  conclusion of the contest. Challenges not used within the first six innings will not carry over and if a manager wins a challenge, he will be able to retain it. Instant replay is currently being limited to just boundary calls involving home runs.

The proposal will be voted on by the owners in November. A 75 percent vote by the owners is needed for approval. The Major League Baseball Players Association and the World Umpires Association also have to agree to any changes to the current system.
