Expanded Replay Usage

Compiled by David Vincent

This list shows all instances of the use of the expanded replay system.
On January 16, 2014, the owners unanimously approved an expanded use of the replay
system to start in the 2014 season. This expansion covered the following play types:
•	Book rule double (often incorrectly called “ground rule double”)
•	Fair/foul (outfield only)
•	Fan interference
•	Force play (except fielder's touching of second base on a double play)
•	Grounds rule
•	Hit by pitch
•	Home plate collision
•	Passing runners on the base path
•	Plate collisions [new rule in 2014]
•	Record keeping (such as ball/strike counts)
•	Runners touching a base (appeal play)
•	Stadium boundary calls (such as a fielder falling into the fan area to make a catch)
•	Tag play
•	Timing play (run scoring before the third out)
•	Trap play (outfield only)
The following play types were not covered in the new version of the system:
•	Balls and strikes
•	Checked swings
•	Fair/foul (infield only)
•	Interference
•	Obstruction
•	Trap play (infield only)

On February 20, 2015, Major League Baseball announced changes to the 2014 Expanded Replay system. The changes included new types of plays that are reviewable.
•	Runners leaving a base too soon
•	Runners properly touching a base on a tag up play

In 2016, a rule change was implemented about sliding into bases. The rules required that a runner:
•         makes contact with the ground before reaching the base
•         is able and attempts to make contact with the base
•         is able and attempts to remain on the base after the slide
•         slides within reach of the base without changing his path to make contact with the fielder

The penalty for violating this rule was an interference call, putting out the batter/runner at 1B. These plays are noted as “Slide rule” in the type column.

There were three outcomes defined:
•	Confirmed – clear and convincing evidence that the call on the field was correct
•	Stands – no clear and convincing evidence to confirm or overturn the call
•	Overturned – clear and convincing evidence that the call on the field was incorrect
