FAST FACTS
After a spate of controversial home runs this season, MLB is planning to implement instant replay to review homers and other close fair-or-foul calls (page 28).... Players with fewer than five years' experience are somewhat more opposed to instant replay: More than half are against using it to review homers, and more than 85% don't want it to settle base path plays.
