College baseball video review expanding to regular season

by Associated Press on August 17, 2016

OMAHA, Neb. (AP) — The video review rule in college baseball is being expanded to cover regular-season games starting in 2017.

The NCAA Playing Rules Oversight Panel on Wednesday approved a proposal that allows conferences and schools to implement the rule, which has been available for use on an experimental basis at the College World Series since 2012 and in super regionals the past two years.

Among other plays, reviews can be done to determine if an apparent home run is fair or foul, if a batted ball left the playing field for a home run or a ground-rule double, fan interference, if a batted ball is fair and if a fielder made a catch on a fair ball hit into the outfield or on any foul ball.
