(Jayson Stark) Major League Baseball will begin installing two new, experimental replay systems this month at Yankee Stadium and Citi Field in New York to test their viability for reviewing fair/foul calls.
The systems won't be used to reverse or confirm calls at this time, according to MLB officials familiar with the plans. But their installation will enable MLB to determine which system would best fit baseball's needs.
"Hawkeye," the camera-based technology used in tennis, will be tested at Citi Field, both during Mets games in September and on off-days. A radar-based system, similar to the technology used to track shots in golf telecasts, will be tested at Yankee Stadium. That technology, officials said, has not been used previously to review calls in any sport.
