Selig Rules Out Increased Instant Replay This Year
NEW YORK (AP) -- Baseball commissioner Bud Selig has ruled out increased use of instant replay by umpires to review close calls during the postseason this year.

Selig said Monday night that he had discussed the matter with the special committee of managers, management and ownership he appointed in December.

Baseball instituted video review to assist umpires late in the 2008 season, but limited its use to whether potential home runs are fair and whether the ball went over the fence.

Selig says that on close calls, umpires "got something like 98 percent right."
