Like the use in the NFL and other professional sports, Major League Baseball is finally taking advantage of modern technology in order to better “America’s pastime.” Currently, the commissioner, Bud Selig, has only allowed instant replay to be used for controversies like home run calls and spectator interferences. The latest MLB collective bargaining agreement, pending on the agreement of the umpire union, expands instant replay to include boundary calls and caught/trapped balls.\n\nSelig instituted MLB instant replay on August 28, 2008. Although MLB was the last of the four major United States professional sports to implement instant replay even in its limited capacity, fans, managers, and players have recently been requesting a revision on how often it is used. Some fans have been upset with how replay has been restricted to solely home run calls and interference, but nothing else. These fans believe that replay should be instituted in other disputed calls such as base running, plate calling, and whether or not a batter is hit by a pitch.","content_type":"","title":null,"shrink":null},{"type":"particle","particle_id":236099,"object_id":"1043180097_1350619099","particle_type":"quote","picture":null,"text":"We&#39;re going to expand instant replay when we have the technology to do that.

Since 1869, baseball, as America’s pastime, has not used instant replay. There have only been two minor incidences where it has been utilized. Although not an actual “instant” replay situation, then commissioner of the MLB, Bowie Kuhn, used videotape to review a call the day after a game of the 1969 World Series. He only studied the tape to assure himself and announce that the umpires had made the correct call (Official Rules).\n\nInstant replay was actually used for the first time in 1999 during a Florida Marlins home game. After a ball was ruled a double, but then a home run, National League umpire Frank Pulli consulted a TV monitor in the Marlins’ dugout and reverted the hit back to a double. The Cardinals won the game and the Marlins protested the used of the TV monitor. At this time, the National League and the American League were still two separate entities, but they still concurred that the use of Instant Replay was wrong and was not to be used again in the future (NL President). MLB would not use Instant Replay again for almost decade.\n\nCommissioner Bud Selig finally implemented Instant Replay in August of 2008. It was even awarded Time Magazines “Top 100 Best Inventions of 2008” (Newman). Since then, replay has only been used for controversial home run calls. At the time, Selig remained opposed to unlimited instant replay. “I believe that the extraordinary technology that we now have merits the use of Instant Replay on a very limited basis,” Selig said. “The system we have in place will ensure that the proper call is made on home run balls and will not cause a significant delay in the game.” The director of the player’s union, David Fehr, said the players were pleased with the addition of Instant Replay (Curry). The players and managers also had the option at the end of the season to protest the use of replay, but if not contested, replay would be used until labor agreements expired in 2011.\n","content_type":"","title":null,"shrink":null},{"type":"particle","particle_id":284332,"object_id":"10431800971352096556","particle_type":"bodytitle","picture":null,"text":"Why the sudden controversy over Instant Replay?","content_type":"","title":null,"shrink":null},{"type":"particle","particle_id":284330,"object_id":"10431800971352096529","particle_type":"bodytext","picture":null,"text":"There has always been debate over how much replay should be used. As of right now, it is limited to home run calls, boundary calls, and spectator interference. Although these rules have only been in place for four years and have worked to some extent, fans and managers alike have been recently upset with the lack of effectiveness of the MLB umpires. Missed calls like Armando Galarraga’s near perfect game in 2010 sparked controversy over how often and to what extent Instant Replay should be used. Currently, commissioner Bud Selig is still on the fence, “We&#39;re going to expand instant replay when we have the technology to do that. We will review it. Baseball is a game of pace. You can&#39;t compare it to anything else. We have to be careful how we proceed” (Nightengale). His unwillingness to come to a conclusion is starting to make people weary.\n\n\tThe human component of the game is no doubt the most debated subject of this whole dilemma. Even Dan Barrack said in his article vying for the implementation of Instant Replay before it was even instituted in 2008 that, “The human element is once again the reason for a negative perspective of instant replay.” But Dallas McLaughlin argues, “The human element of baseball has always been one of pride.” Human error is an unavoidable when the umpires are making the calls, but involving Instant Replay can definitely limit the amount of mistakes made by these officials so that their pride won’t ever be on the line. Jay Jaffe suggests that the MLB make the umpires accountable for their mistakes and possibly reducing their workloads. Selig will ultimately decide whether these recommendations are worth taking into account.\n\n\tGalarraga’s game is not the only recent missed call. A 2012 playoff game between the St. Louis Cardinals and the Atlanta Braves highlighted the petty rules of Instant Replay. Although it was an obvious missed call, the rules did not allow the chance for it to be reviewed. Another missed call instance was in the 2012 ALCS between the New York Yankees and Detroit Tigers. A simple error by the umpire can change the course of a game. This is especially important in a playoff game where both of the teams are vying for a win. Fans, players, and managers alike were unhappy with both calls and the cries for replay to be expanded have only grown louder with the onset of the offseason. Whether or not Selig will decide to expand replay is up to him, and he said he might in 2013, but we have the technology, so what are we waiting for (DelVecchio)?\n","content_type":"","title":null,"shrink":null},{"type":"particle","particle_id":284400,"object_id":"10431800971352100362","particle_type":"bodytitle","picture":null,"text":"What do Hall of Famers and managers think about Instant Replay?","content_type":"","title":null,"shrink":null},{"type":"particle","particle_id":284399,"object_id":"10431800971352100317","particle_type":"bodytext","picture":null,"text":"Obviously, with Instant Replay being implemented in 2008, only a select amount of players have experienced playing with the option of having a call overruled. Even so, Hall of Famers like Tony Gwinn and Harmon Killebrew have their own opinions on Instant Replay. Whereas some of these veterans are all for using the technology that we have, a few are also dead-set against the idea of using Instant Replay. These “old timers” have an old-fashioned, but rational view of why we should play the game the way it’s always been played. The human element, to them, is all part of the game. Even Doug Harvey mentioned, “You&#39;re gonna take all the humanity out of baseball. In fact, if we&#39;re gonna do that, why don&#39;t we just get robots and let them play the game” (Hall of Famers, 1:08)? Having grown up in an era where technology is not as apparent in everyday life as it is now, it’s obvious that these men have a practical viewpoint of how their generation sees the implementation of new technology that they aren’t familiar with. They want things to be the way they always were and the game to stay the way it’s always been played, and that’s understandable. Patrick Rishe makes a good point when he says, “When technology is available and you fail to embrace it to maximize efficiency in competition and operations, you turn off consumers and disappoint your loyal fans.” He also goes on to say that without change, baseball will eventually hurt it’s public image. To have the technology and not use it is being wasteful.\n\n\tFrom the other side though, a surprising amount of Hall of Famers and even veteran manager Joe Girardi are open to the idea of Instant Replay. They realize that since we have the technology is available, that there is no excuse not to use it. Tony Gwinn stated, “It helps the game, it helps the fans, it helps both teams because again, the objective is to get the call right.” If umpires keep getting the calls wrong, there will start being more consequences than just a blown inning. It will start affecting standings, playoffs, and eventually the World Series. Girardi’s comments on Instant Replay over the years have been fairly consistent as well. He is open to the idea of using “evolved technology” (Granillo, Joe Girardi). No matter the opinion, people seem generally open to the idea of integrating it more than it is currently. After all, the objective is to get the call right.\n","content_type":"","title":null,"shrink":null},{"type":"particle","particle_id":286147,"object_id":"10431800971352136165","particle_type":"bodytitle","picture":null,"text":"Annotations of Five Key Sources","content_type":"","title":null,"shrink":null},{"type":"particle","particle_id":286148,"object_id":"10431800971352136191","particle_type":"bodytext","picture":null,"text":"Barrack, Dan. \"Replay the Reasons Why Baseball Needs Replay.\" Marist News Watch. Marist News Watch, 2007. Web. 21 Oct. 2012. Barrack&#39;s article focuses on what baseball was like before instant replay came out in 2008. Because it was written in 2007, the author has no idea of what is to come, so he only knows the pure game of baseball, but he thinks that replay should be integrated into how the game is played.\n\n“Baseball Hall of Famers on Instant Replay.” ESPN Video. ESPN Internet Ventures, 11 Aug. 2010. Web. 21 Oct. 2012. Baseball Hall of Famers including Harmon Killebrew and Tony Gwinn share their take on instant replay in baseball. Most are for it to preserve the integrity of the game, but some are old school and want baseball to remain the same way it has been played for the last 100+ years.\n\nDelVecchio, Steve. \"Bud Selig Believes Baseball Needs More Instant Replay and Less Champagne.\" Larry Brown Sports. N.p., 16 Oct. 2012. Web. 20 Oct. 2012. In this article DelVecchio states that Bud Selig is planning to expand instant replay for the 2013 season. Interesting enough, Selig was quoted only a few months ago saying that baseball didn&#39;t need expanded replay, but with some recently botched calls in the 2012 playoffs, Selig was quoted as saying the opposite.\n\nGranillo, Larry. \"Joe Girardi and Instant Replay through the Years.\" Baseball Prospectus. Prospectus Entertainment Ventures, 15 Oct. 2012. Web. 21 Oct. 2012. Granillo compiled a list of quotes by Joe Girardi concerning instant replay since 2006. Girardi goes back and forth between whether or not he thinks that instant replay is beneficial. The comments are mostly consistent, with a few opposite remarks, when it&#39;s not in the best interest of his own team.\n\nRishe, Patrick. \"Baseball&#39;s Unwillingness to Expand Instant Replay Is Bad Business.\" Forbes. Forbes.com, 16 Oct. 2012. Web. 21 Oct. 2012. Rishe comes at instant replay from a business angle. He likens baseball&#39;s unwillingness to use instant replay to a grandpa not knowing how to use the internet. He states how it is wasteful to have the technology and not use it because it makes baseball seem archaic. He also says that baseball is losing its younger generation of fans, and using new technology might help with that.","content_type":"","title":null,"shrink":null},{"type":"particle","particle_id":286156,"object_id":"10431800971352136361","particle_type":"bodytitle","picture":null,"text":"Works Cited","content_type":"","title":null,"shrink":null},{"type":"particle","particle_id":286162,"object_id":"10431800971352136456","particle_type":"bodytext","picture":null,"text":"Barrack, Dan. \"Replay the Reasons Why Baseball Needs Replay.\" Marist News Watch.
