Replay coming Friday to Trop
Instant replay will be used for games at Tropicana Field starting Friday under a plan MLB is expected to make official this afternoon.
Commisioner Bud Selig is scheduled to announce at 5 p.m. that replay will be used for series starting Thursday and Friday. The Rays open a weekend series against the Orioles on Friday.
Replay use will be limited to boundary calls in determining home runs - such as whether a ball cleared the outfield wall and was fair or foul. At the Trop, that likely would also include whether potential home run balls hit the catwalks.
