College World Series gets OK for instant replay
OMAHA, Neb. – The NCAA has given final approval for the use of instant replay to review certain calls at the 2012 College World Series.
Reviewable plays would be limited to deciding if an apparent home run is fair or foul, whether a batted ball left the playing field for a home run or a ground-rule double, or whether there is fan interference on apparent home runs.
The NCAA Baseball Rules Committee proposed the rule, and it was approved Thursday by the Playing Rules Oversight Panel.
Instant replay won't be used in regionals and super regionals because not all venues will have access to the same technology as TD Ameritrade Park, the new home of the CWS.
