MLB institutes replay challenges

Major League Baseball owners have approved a dramatic expansion to the league's instant replay system, instituting manager challenges and adding a number of plays to the list of those subject to review. Managers will be allowed to challenge one play per game, with a second challenge if the first is successful, and umpires will be allowed to review close plays after the seventh inning if challenges are exhausted. There's a risk that this would increase the already-lengthy time of an average baseball game, but it might be better to make sure a game isn't decided on an umpire's moment of human fallibility.
