Replay in Major League Baseball

I love baseball. Always have, always will.

I love all of the quirky little things about the game. You can go to a game and have the opportunity to see something that you’ve never seen before, or has rarely happened. (I.E. perfect game this past weekend)
with that being said, something has to change as far as the usage of replay during a game.

There is no reason that baseball couldn’t implement a system similiar to football, where a coach gets at least one “challenge” per game.

The technology is available, let’s use it to make things “right.”

Even though I’m a Texas Rangers fan, having a replay challenge available to Detroit manager Jim Leyland in last Sunday’s game against Texas would have given the officials the ability to see that a bunt with the bases loaded and the game on the line bounced off the knee of the Texas hitter before rolling into fair territory.

The ball was ruled fair, and the go ahead run scored for Texas.

Mr. Selig, please tear down that wall that exists for not being able to use replay on plays such as this.
