Instant Replay Goes Bowling
MILWAUKEE (AP) -- While baseball refuses to embrace replay despite blown calls in the playoffs, bowling is moving ahead.

The Professional Bowlers Association says it has decided to use video replay to resolve disputed calls.

PBA officials say there are only a handful of situations in recent memory that would have warranted a replay review, but having that ability will help ensure that the right call gets made.

As bowling joins the ranks of sports that use replay, baseball continues to use it only to determine whether home runs count. Some in baseball are calling for expanded use of replay after disputed calls have marred the first week of the playoffs.
