    Instant replay 2014 - will fans at YS see videos before and after umpires decisions?

    Baseball's goal is to have replays take 1 minute, 15 seconds or less. In recent tests at the Arizona Fall League, reviews averaged 1 minute, 40 seconds.

    What will fans at Yankee Stadium see on the big screen on the scoreboard both before and after the umpires decisions?

    A montage of all the bad calls that went against the Yankees the last few years.

    I think it depends on who they line up to sponsor the replay review

    No, they will never show replays of disputed (or disputable) calls, not at Yankee Stadium or any other stadium.

    Maybe not officially - but every TV in the stands, on concession lines, in the Audi Club, etc. that is broadcasting the game is showing fans in the Stadium the replay. So many are seeing it one way or another.

    Maybe so, though those people should be in their seats, watching the game. In any case, the point is that they'll never allow those replays to be shown on a huge screen in front of the umpires.

    I would guess MLB would have some sort of rule not allowing replays on the main video boards. They are not going to allow showing if the umpires made a bad call.

    Probably work like the NFL, if it looks like it may favor the home they will show it.

    I found this article but I don't go to NFL games, maybe someone who does will share what they get to see

    http://www.nfl.com/news/story/09000d...s-as-officials

    The trend has to be to let fans get the best possible experience when paying to attend in person.

    I thought the point of instant replay is to get the bad calls corrected immediately.

    NFL stadiums show the video that the officials are looking at to determine replay calls. Why would MLB not do the same thing?

    Re: Instant replay 2014 - will fans at YS see videos before and after umpires decisio

    MLB is at least considering allowing the replays to be shown on stadium screens:

    [MLB chief operating officer Rob] Manfred appeared to indicate that the video being reviewed in New York could be shown to fans in stadiums or possibly on television broadcasts.

    “I think you can expect that there will be as part of this package expanded use of in-stadium video boards,” he said.

    I would think that rule would be bent for plays that are being reviewed via instant replay.

    Disputed calls in hockey are shown on the scoreboard while being reviewed. Why not baseball?

    Since there are only 163 people who watch NHL games, it doesn't matter so much.

    I had no idea the NHL was gaining more viewership.

    But there are 80K+ fans at an NFL game and it's not an issue there . . .

    . . . yes it is.


    Fearing that the fans will riot if they see a reply of a bad call . . . do they think this is soccer?


    There are enough TVs in today's stadiums showing replays you can actually hear the fans cheer/groan response on TV/radio when they see it. This is an outdated rule.

    Maybe in 1995 fan reaction/rioting would have been an issue. Today's crowd is more likely to riot if the diamond vision announces bobble head night is cancelled or Metro North is not running more so then a call going against the Yankees

    I cannot begin to tell you how infuriating it is to see Rangers games on MSG+ while the terrible Knicks continue to get the prime spot on MSG. The Rangers aren't contending for anything special either, but at least they aren't tanking for a non-existent draft pick.
