Why Instant Replay for Just Home Runs?

none noneContributor IAugust 20, 2008

Major League Baseball is finally adding technology to the game.  Umpires have agreed to use instant replay to determine fair or foul balls as well as home run balls.  It is good to see that instant replay will be used to help umpires do their job better.  But why stop at just foul balls and home runs.  Those are not the only close calls that need instant replay.  Umpiring is not an easy job and mistakes and bad calls will be made.  Some kind of rules she be established to allow instant replay to play a bigger role.  You never know when another situation like the 1985 world series might happen.  Fans may not be entirely in favor for instant replay but when your team loses a world series because of a missed call your opinion may change.
